Laparoscopic Surgeries

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive process in which tiny holes are drilled into the body using advanced optical and video technology. Through the miniaturization of surgical instruments and the development of better cutting and sealing energy sources (rather than lasers), tiny holes have made surgery possible. Compared to large incisions, tiny holes lead to a significant reduction in pain, disability, scars, incision hernias, and wound infection complications after surgery. The possibility of tiny holes has transformed surgery, allowing patients to eat and move around within one day and get back to normal activities within a week during recovery.


Laparoscopy is frequently used to detect and diagnose pelvic or abdominal pain, especially when non-invasive methods do not provide adequate results. Various imaging steps can be used to diagnose abdominal problems, such as:

  • Ultrasound, which creates images of the body by using high-frequency sound waves.
  • CT scans, which are a series of X-rays that produce cross-sectional images of the body.
  • MRI scans, which produce images of the body by using magnets and radio waves.

Laparoscopy is used when these tests are insufficient to make a diagnosis. It may also involve taking an abdominal biopsy to collect tissue from a particular organ.


Laparoscopic surgery utilizes small incisions ranging in size from 5-15 mm to perform the procedure. Depending on the specific procedure, the number and location of the incisions may vary but typically range from 1 to 6. This procedure is also called “keyhole surgery.”

The first step in any laparoscopic procedure is to create space in the abdomen for the operation. Carbon dioxide is pumped into the stomach to achieve this. Tubes are then inserted to allow safe insertion of instruments. Laparoscopes are long, narrow instruments that transmit intense light and have a high-resolution camera at one end. During the examination, the camera transmits a live image of the abdomen to a video monitor. The surgeon operates on the organ with the help of long, slender instruments while observing the video monitor.

Can laparoscopic surgery be used to treat all gastrointestinal conditions?

 The procedure is commonly used to treat conditions such as:

  • Stones in the gallbladder (laparoscopic cholecystectomy)
  • Appendicitis (laparoscopic appendicectomy)
  • Intestinal, incisional, or umbilical hernia
