Is Laparoscopic Surgery safe?

Over years Medical science has seen many innovations, standardization of patient treatment pathways, and improved overall patient safety. The same has translated to laparoscopic surgery as well. Modern day medicine takes utmost care of patient safety.

Any surgical procedure does have a small risk of adverse events like bleeding, infection, risk to life. The same applies to smallest surgeries like nail removal and also to laparoscopic surgeries as well. In fact, this risk is equivalent to the risks involved in our day to day activities like travel in public transport, travel on road. Practically Laparoscopic surgery today is as safe as travelling in one’s own car on city roads.

Compared to traditional open surgery, with laparoscopy, the risk of bleeding and infection is much less. In laparoscopic surgery, patient has significantly less pain. In few hours after surgery, patient can move out of bed and walk around. In fact, the same is actively encouraged by the medical team involved. This prevents protracted bed rest and its associated complication like blood clot formation in deep veins of legs.

Can Laparoscopic Surgery be used for any area of body other than Abdomen or pelvis?

Laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery can be used by surgeon to access multiple body cavities and body organs. Minimally invasive surgery is the more appropriate generic term when areas of body other than abdomen are considered.
Keyhole surgeries in the chest are called thoracoscopic surgeries. An arthroscope is used by orthopaedic surgeon for working inside joints. Although having different names depending on what area of the body they are examining, all the scopes are variations of similar instrument.

How is Laparoscopic surgery different from open surgery?

Inside the tummy, the quantum of surgical work done is same in Laparoscopic or open surgery. The tools used by surgeon to do the required surgery differs. Many cutting-edge technological innovations, advanced imaging modalities and advanced technical skills of surgeon are at play in laparoscopic surgery.

To the visible eye the length of surgical incisions on skin is the most visible and stark contrasting feature between laparoscopic and open surgery. But in reality, the differences go much beyond the visible cosmetic advantage.

Magnified image improves the precision. Easier access to narrow areas within the tummy allows surgeon to do much more than what he was able to do with open surgery.

Newer techniques allow visualization of structures located deep inside tummy in real time without disturbing the layers covering them. This improves the safety profile of surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery is often less traumatic, results in less blood loss, and requires a shorter hospital stay than open surgery.

Which Surgery Better for me

Open Surgery

Open surgery is the traditional way of performing surgery. 

It takes slightly longer to recover. 

For supra-major surgeries like Liver transplant, even today, open surgery is the standard of care. 

For patients who cannot tolerate laparoscopic surgery due to associated medical comorbid diseases, open surgery is the only way out. 

Surgeon will also have to resort to open surgery in situations where laparoscopic surgery is technically not feasible or has failed

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopy”, also referred to as “keyhole surgery”, “minimally invasive surgery” is the standard of care today for many commonly performed surgeries. 

Today, worldwide, almost all of Gallbladder removal surgeries (cholecystectomy), appendix removal surgeries (appendicectomy) are performed using laparoscopic surgery. Advances in technology, accumulating experience of medical team involved, has made the patient’s journey much more comfortable.

Vast majority of the surgeries today are done by laparoscopic approach. In hands of well-trained experienced laparoscopic surgeons, laparoscopic surgery should be the preferred approach.
