|Centre for Minimal Invasive Surgery
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive approach that involves specialized video equipment and instruments that allows a surgeon to operate inside the body through tiny incisions, most of which are less than a half-centimetre in size. So the laparoscopy surgeries are more preferred because the healing rate is faster. This enables the patient to resume her normal activities much faster compared to the traditional 'open surgeries'.
Advantages of Laparoscopy Surgery
The patients can return to work much faster compared to the traditional 'open surgeries'. The reason being that the damage to tissues and muscles is less because incision made during laparoscopic procedure is very small.
Short hospital stay
Depending on the kind of surgery, patients may be able to return home a few hours after the operation, or after a brief stay in the hospital.
Less postoperative pain
The amount of discomfort varies with the kind of surgery. But the pain is much less compared to the open surgery. This is because, in laparoscopic surgeries, it is not required to cut the abdominal muscles. The laparoscopy surgeons just make tiny incisions for the instrument to go inside.
Better cosmetic results
The incisions for laparoscopic surgery are very small. So they heal without noticeable scars.
