Laparoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that is sometimes necessary to observe the abdominal organs and determine the source of a patient’s discomfort or pain. Robotic laparoscopy makes this procedure even less invasive than it already was, reducing downtime and post-operative discomfort with smaller incisions than traditional laparoscopy would allow. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure, contact the trusted experts at Allure Laser and Medspa to schedule a consultation with our doctor.
What Does Robotic Laparoscopy Involve?
The process involves inserting a thin tube with a camera attached through the abdominal wall. Our doctor will then be able to see the area clearly on a nearby screen. Because the camera allows the doctor to see a close-up version of the abdominal area, it is not necessary to resort to more invasive measures to make a proper diagnosis.
After determining what’s causing your abdominal pain, our surgeon will perform the right procedure for your needs. During your consultation, we will give you more information on what types of conditions can be addressed with laparoscopic surgery.
The Benefits of Robotic Laparoscopy
Because the robot assisting the surgery allows for highly controlled movements and tiny incisions, robotic laparoscopy is considered a minimally invasive procedure. Thanks to advancements made with robotics in the medical field, robotic laparoscopy makes it easy to perform procedures such as hernia repair and gallbladder removal.
Robotic surgery allows the surgeon to perform smaller, more precise movements than what would be possible with traditional surgery. Robotic laparoscopy also means far smaller incisions during the procedure, which leaves the patient with a shorter, more comfortable recovery period. Recovery from laparoscopic surgery typically only lasts a couple weeks, while a patient may spend up to two months recovering from open surgery.
Who Could Benefit from Robotic Laparoscopy?
If you are suffering from consistent abdominal pain and do not know what could be causing it, our doctor may recommend robotic laparoscopy to examine the area and make a diagnosis. The best way to find out if this procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with us.
