Laparoscopy has become the surgical method of choice for treating a wide variety of conditions and diseases in recent years. Due to the numerous advantages it provides and the shorter recovery time, the surgery has gained widespread popularity among both doctors and patients. Let’s take a closer look at what this method entails and where it might be used in the real world.

The use of laparoscopy as a surgical method has increased significantly in recent years. A series of tiny incisions are made as opposed to one large one in order to gain access to the surgical site, which is a radical departure from conventional surgical practice. To perform the procedure, a laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera and a light at one end) is used. In order to get a good look at the organs inside, the doctor inserts a thin tube through an incision that is only about 1 cm wide.

To complete the procedure, additional incisions are made in and around the target area. Minimally invasive surgery, or laparoscopy, is another name for this procedure. First used for gallbladder removal and a few gynaecological procedures, laparoscopic surgery is now routinely performed on the intestines, liver, abdomen, and other organs.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
  • The patient can return home sooner.
  • Less scarring will result from the surgery.
  • The scars heal more quickly and with less discomfort for the patient.
  • The patient is quicker to return to normal activities.
Laparoscopic Surgery is used for the procedures listed below

Hernia Surgery:

In the case of a hernia, an internal organ protrudes through a weak spot in the muscle or tissue that normally keeps it in place. A hernia is a bulge in the abdominal wall or the thoracic wall that exposes abdominal contents. Hernias are extremely prevalent, and the most typical types are:

Inguinal Hernia:

There is a ligament that holds the uterus in place in the inguinal canal. An inguinal hernia occurs when abdominal fat or a section of intestine protrudes through the inguinal canal into the groin. Women are more likely than men to suffer from this particular hernia.

Hiatal (hiatus) Hernia:

Due to weakness a hole in the diaphragm, some of the stomach protrudes into the chest.

Umbilical Hernia:

Another familiar kind of hernia that typically affects women is the umbilical hernia, in which a loop of intestine or fatty tissue protrudes from the belly button.

Femoral Hernia:

When this happens, either a large amount of fat or a section of the intestine protrudes into the upper inner thigh (groin). The elderly female population is disproportionately affected.


Having your appendix removed surgically is known as an appendectomy. Located in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen, it is a small, tube-shaped sack connected to the large intestine. It is a vestigial organ. Despite the lack of definitive evidence for its role, the appendix is often thought by some to aid in the body’s recovery from small and large intestine infections. To treat appendicitis, inflammation of the appendix, an appendectomy is typically performed as an emergency surgery.

Gallbladder removal:

Gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ found on the upper right side of the abdomen on the right, below the liver. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a surgical removal of the gallbladder.

Colon Surgery:

Treatment for cancers of colon or rectum, prolapse of rectum, etc hemorrhoids, fistulas, and other colorectal conditions typically involves laparoscopic surgery.

Bariatric Surgery:

Whenever a patient’s condition is in jeopardy as a result of their excess weight, and diet and exercise have failed to produce the desired results, a bariatric procedure may be recommended. The body’s ability to absorb nutrients may be diminished by certain procedures, while others regulate and restrict the patient’s food intake.

Anti-reflux Surgery:

Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication, or anti-reflux surgery, is a common procedure. When standard treatment for GERD (such as medication) is unsuccessful in preventing acid reflux into the stomach, surgery (called fundoplication) is a drastic measure that can be taken. The procedure involves wrapping the upper stomach around the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to strengthen the sphincter and stop acid reflux.
