Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeries at Atharv

Laparoscopy, also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), band-aid surgery, or keyhole surgery, is a sophisticated surgical procedure conducted in the abdomen or pelvis through small incisions, typically ranging from 0.5 to 1.5 cm, utilizing a camera for visualization. This innovative approach offers numerous benefits compared to traditional exploratory laparotomy, including diminished pain due to smaller incisions, minimized bleeding, and accelerated recovery time.
Central to laparoscopic surgery is the deployment of a laparoscope, a slender fiber optic cable system enabling visualization of the affected area by threading the cable from a remote yet easily accessible location.
Frequently employed to pinpoint and diagnose the origin of pelvic or abdominal discomfort, laparoscopy becomes necessary when noninvasive methods prove inadequate for diagnosis. In many instances, abdominal ailments can also be diagnosed using imaging modalities such as:

• Ultrasound: Utilizes high-frequency sound waves to generate images of the body.
• CT scan (Computed Tomography): Involves a series of specialized X-rays to capture cross-sectional images of the body.
• MRI scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): Relies on magnets and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body.

These imaging techniques, combined with laparoscopy, constitute a comprehensive diagnostic arsenal, enabling healthcare professionals to accurately identify and address a wide spectrum of abdominal conditions with precision and efficiency.

Laparoscopy is performed when these tests don’t provide enough information or insight for a diagnosis. The procedure may also be used to take a biopsy, or sample of tissue, from a particular organ in the abdomen.Some of the laparoscopic procedures include:

• Gynecologic cancer staging
• Myomectomy (removal of fibroids)
• Sterilization (tubal ligation)
• Tubal re-anastomosis
