3D LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERIES
What is Laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy is a form of diagonistic as well as surgical procedure which is used for examining the organs inside the abdomen. It involves minimal invasive procedures. Laparoscopy uses instrument called Laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs.
A Laparoscope is an instrument with a high intensity light and a camera in the front. It enters your abdomen through an incision and allows the doctor to see inside your abdomen.
Need for Laparoscopy:
Laparoscopy is useful in diagnosing the source of abdominal and pelvic pain. Laparoscopy is used when tests don’t provide enough information for a diagnosis. This procedure helps in taking biopsies or tissues samples from organs in the abdomen.
From a laparoscopy report the doctor can check for various issues such as abdominal cavity, liver disease, treatment efficiency and degree of cancer progression.
What is 3D Laparoscopy?
3D Laparoscopic surgeries holds lots of advantages over 2D Laparoscopic surgeries. It restores natural 3D vision thereby providing depth perception, improved hand-eye coordination and precise spatial orientation. It also reduces surgeon fatigue and procedure time. With 3D Laparoscopy the surgery costs reduces while accuracy and precision increases.
Pros and Cons of Laparoscopy :
- Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive.
- Patients feel less pain.
- Smaller incisions prevents the development of hernia and wound infection.
- Surgical scars are almost invisible.
- Use of general anesthetics might cause nausea or sore throat after operation.
- Patients might get air pockets under the diaphragm, causing neck and shoulder pain.
- People complain of feeling bloated after surgery.
