A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure used by doctors to view a woman’s reproductive organs. A laparoscope (a thin viewing tube with a video camera) is passed through a small incision in the abdomen to look at the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and surrounding organs. This is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring minimal hospital stay with a faster recovery time than open surgery.
There are different types of laparoscopic treatment, which includes:
Your gynecologist may recommend this procedure to:
*Price shown is an estimate. Actual prices may vary depending on the complexity of the treatment.
You will be required to fast for at least 8 hours before the procedure. Admission to the hospital will be done at 6am on the day of surgery.Oral pre-medication is given the night before to clean the bowel contents to facilitate the surgery
You will be given general anesthesia to relax your muscles and prevent pain. A 10 mm umbilical surgical incision for the telescope and 2.5 mm surgical incisions for laparoscopic instruments will be made on the left side/ right side of the abdomen for the surgery.
A laparoscope will be inserted and the abdomen inflated to view your organs. The view is magnified 10 times and hence gives scope for a precise surgery.The laparoscopic instruments are used to perform the surgical steps.The relevant tissue is removed piecemeal after placing the tissue in a sterile endobag through the 10mm incision.A single or no stitch is placed at the entry points.All important surgical steps are documented for future reference.
IV fluids, antibiotics, antacids and pain relief medications are given during the first 24 hours after the surgery. Around 6 to 8 hours after surgery, oral liquids will be given followed by a diet of soft food. You will be able to walk around 12 after surgery.
After 1 to 2 days, you will be sent home with pain relief medication, antibiotics, antacid medication and advice on diet. After the procedure, you may do regular minor household chores, bathing, climbing steps, and walking around in the house.
One week after the procedure an OPD visit with the consultant ObGyn is a must, during which your histopathology report will be reviewed in relevant cases. Further treatment of the diagnosed condition will also be decided upon.
