One of the newest super speciality branch of general surgery is the gastrointestinal surgery. In this field the experienced doctors and high-volume centers have made a difference in outcomes of surgery. Gastrointestinal Laparoscopic Surgery refers to the key hole surgery related with stomach, small and large intestines.
Before the Laparoscopic surgery starts, the surgeon will take a thorough look at your abdominal cavity to make sure that laparoscopy will be safe for you. In conditions like infection, multiple adhesions, or other abdominal diseases, the laproscopic surgery will not be prefered.
An intravenous tube will be inserted into a vein in your arm to deliver medications and fluids before you have laparoscopic surgery.The surgeon will place a small port just below your bellybutton and advance the port into your abdominal cavity. This port is connected to sterile tubing and carbon dioxide is passed into the abdominal cavity through the tubing to lift the wall of your abdomen away from the organs below. This space will give your surgeon a better view of your abdominal cavity once the laparoscope is in place. The laparoscope is placed through the port and is connected to a video camera. The image your surgeon sees on the laparoscope is projected onto video monitors placed near the operating table and thus surgery can be done in an accurate way.
You have to take additional care at home,after laparoscopic surgery. Walking is great exercise and will help your general recovery by strengthening your muscles, keeping your blood circulating to prevent blood clots, and help your lungs to stay clear. After this kind of operation you are not permitted to lift or push anything over 30 pounds or do abdominal exercises such as sit-ups for six weeks.
As compared to other countries like Canada, USA and UK the Gastrointestinal surgeries are done here in India at an affordable rate. In India, this treatment is carried out in Bangalore, the IT hub of India, under the guidance of Dr.K.N.Srikanth and his well trained associates.
