I am Dr. Kundan Kharde so, today I will be discussing laser and laparoscopy in general surgery. So, both topics fall under minimal access surgery. Laparoscopy is basically surgery of the abdomen with the help of some optic fiber. In this, we make very small incisions. And through these buttonholes, we insert some cameras and optic fiber. We get a better and magnified view of internal organs on a big screen.
With the help of an instrument, we can operate many abdominal surgeries like appendix, gallbladder stones, and even hernia can be treated with laparoscopy. So, what are the advantages of laparoscopy surgery? As I said that the wound and the cut will be very small. So, there will be less pain, recovery will be faster. Hospital admission will be very less. Apart from this, we also do laser. Laser in general surgery is mostly used for varicose veins. We use laser for piles, fistula, and fissures. With the help of the laser, we can correct all those problems. The laser enables us to operate these cases in a minimal way. It gives fewer wounds, faster recovery, less pain, and lesser hospital stay.
