Laproscopy is a way of performing key hole surgery. Instead of making a large incision (or cut) for certain operations, surgeons makes tiny incision and insert thin instruments with a camera attached to a telescope into an area, such as into the abdomen, to view internal organs and repair or remove tissue. For patients, laparoscopy can often mean a faster recovery from conventional surgery, less time in hospital and less trauma to the body. Conceptually,the laparoscopic approach is intended to minimise post-operative pain and speed up recovery times, while maintaining an enhanced visual field for surgeons.
Laparoscopic surgery describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments.
During the surgical procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions. The telescope with camera attached to it is introduced through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient.
The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor. The surgeon is now able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The video camera becomes the surgeons eyes in laproscopic surgery, since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patients body to perform the procedure.
Due to all these surgeries, the health of women get tremendously changed. For these type of surgeries, we need skilled surgons and highly efficient operation theatres.
