Laparoscopic Keyhole Surgery for Treating Urinary Conditions
Keyhole surgery is specialized laparoscopic surgery technique that reduces stress, pain and recovery time. Leading hospitals around the world offer keyhole surgery techniques to remedy a number of urinary conditions.
What is Keyhole Surgery?
The term keyhole surgery doesn’t refer to a specific procedure. Rather, it refers to a technique used during many different types of surgery. Like many medical terms, “keyhole surgery” is a term that is used metaphorically. To understand keyhole surgery, it’s important to have an understanding of Endoscopy.
What is Endoscopy?
Endoscopy is a technique that allows doctors to look at the inside of the body without the need of direct line-of-sight. It involves the use of a tubular fiber-optic instrument, either flexible or rigid, that allows the physician to see the interior of the body or inside an organ. It is used for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes and typically has one or more channels that allow for the passage of other instruments.
When endoscopy is used for surgery, its name changes depending on the area of the body where it’s used. When it’s used in the chest cavity, it’s known as thoracoscopic surgery. When it’s used in the abdomen and pelvic cavities, it’s known as laparoscopic surgery. When people talk about keyhole surgery, they’re typically talking about a type of laparoscopic technique.
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery refers to a surgical technique that involves making very small incisions that allow the doctor to insert instruments and conduct the operation using an endoscope. The endoscope provides a light source and video images that are typically magnified on a screen so that the surgeon has a clearer view of the surgical procedure.
What are the Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery?
Because it doesn’t involve the traditional long cuts common in surgery, laparoscopic surgery offers several benefits:
• Reduced bleeding
• Reduced chance of the need of a blood transfusion
• Reduced post-operative pain
• Reduced scarring
• Reduced recovery time at the hospital
• Reduced need for painkillers
• Reduced chance of infection
Can I Get Laparoscopic Surgery for My Procedure?
Despite its benefits, laparoscopic surgery is neither for everyone, nor for all surgical procedures. Some preconditions, such as coagulation disorders or tissue damage from previous surgery, may eliminate the possibility of laparoscopic surgery. Only a medical specialist can evaluate your specific condition and tell you if the technique can be used in your case.
