Laparoscopic Surgery or binocular surgery is an operation performed through a mini abdominal wall system and inserting camera binoculars into the stomach. When compared with conventional surgical procedures that require an incision of at least 10 cm on average, the laparoscopic procedure only requires an incision of 1 cm. Laparoscopy can be performed at Primaya Hospital with a team of trained Laparoscopic Gynecological Surgeons.
Advantages and Side Effects of Laparoscopic Surgery
In laparoscopic surgery, the incisions are so small that the surgical scar is barely visible. In addition, the resulting surgical wound is small and does not hurt the muscles so that the pain that occurs is also minimal. After laparoscopic surgery, recovery and healing can occur quickly. In addition, treatment in hospital after Laparoscopic surgery will also be shorter, which is around 1 to 2 days so that patients can return to their activities as usual.
The side effects that might be caused by Laparoscopy are infection, bleeding, pain in the incision, bloating, nausea, and several other side effects. However, the doctor will give medicines to prevent possible side effects.

Laparoscopic Surgery Preparation
Before performing a laparoscopy, patients should be able to consult with a doctor in detail, including the discussion on the risk factors and possible complications. Be sure to give the doctor information about the treatment being taken so that the doctor can suggest the type of medication that needs to be stopped temporarily and the type of medication that can still be continued.
Another preparation that usually needs to be done is fasting for at least six hours before performing a laparoscopy. Patients may be asked to do laboratory tests of blood, urine, heart record Electrocardiogram (ECG), and X-rays. In some cases, ultrasonography (USG), Computerized Tomography Scan (CT Scan), or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examination is required first.
