Laparoscopy

  • One of the most influential developments of the 20the century is minimally invasive surgery. With the minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon can examine and operate the internal organs with small incisions, natural body openings, or puncture holes rather than by dissection.
  • Visual examination and surgery of the inside of the abdomen are done by laparoscopy. The surgical instruments are added through small abdominal incisions to check the abdominal problem. The procedure needs expertise and this is the reason you should always choose the experienced surgeon.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery:

  • Less internal scarring
  • Quick recovery times
  • Smaller scars
  • Less post-op discomfort
  • Quicker return to full activities

 

Endoscopic surgery

Endoscopic surgery is minimal and the endoscope is inserted into the body opening such as anus, mouth, and abdomen.

Additionally, small incisions can be made in the abdomen or knee. Surgery is done with small incisions and assisted with special instruments such as keyhole surgery.

 

Types

Endoscopy is useful for patients in different medical conditions. Different parts of the human body can be checked like:

  • Gastrointestinal Tract: esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (esophagogastroduodenoscopy), small intestine (enteroscopy), bile duct, rectum (rectoscope), large intestine/colon (colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy), and anus (anoscopy),
  • Respiratory Tract: lower respiratory tract (bronchoscopy), and nose (rhinoscopy)
  • Ear: Otoscopy
  • Urinary tract: Cystoscopy
  • Female reproductive tram (gyroscope): Uterus (hysteroscopy), Cervix (colposcopy), and fallopian tubes (fallout j’)
  • Through a small incision: Abdominal or pelvic cavity (Laparoscopy), organs of the chest (mediastinoscopy and thoracoscopy), and the interior of a joint (arthroscopy).
