Central QLD Surgical Care provides laparoscopic surgery as a lower risk option to conventional surgery.
While conventional surgery requires making large incisions in order to perform a surgical procedure, laparoscopic surgery involves only small incisions. Through one incision, the laparoscope—a long thin telescopic tube with a mini light and camera attached—is inserted. In abdominal laparoscopy, a second incision is used to inflate the abdominal cavity thereby allowing greater visibility and access for the laparoscope.
Many surgical procedures can be performed as laparoscopic surgery. The benefits include avoiding many of complications that come with more traditional open surgery.
Known for being minimally-invasive, laparoscopic surgery does, however, require anaesthesia. Considering that after their laparoscopic procedure, most patients go home later that same day, it obviously involves less discomfort and more rapid recovery than conventional surgical operations.
Quicker recovery is a compelling aspect. It can certainly diminish much of the anxiety felt by people who are contemplating the prospect of upcoming surgery.
In almost all cases, laparoscopic surgery means you recover sooner, go home sooner, and return to your normal activities sooner.
