Appendectomy (Appendix)

 

Appendectomy

If you are suffering from an acute case of inflammation or infection in the appendix, then you need an emergency procedure called appendectomy. It is advised that any sort of pain in the general area of the appendix (right lower abdomen) should not be ignored because the infection could spread within the abdomen and result in fatal consequences.

At Naveli Hospital, we perform appendectomy laparoscopically, a far superior procedure as compared to open surgery.
It can also be performed through a single incision which you can read about here.







Know the symptoms

If you experience more than one of the following symptoms it may be likely that your appendix is infected in which case medical intervention will be required.

  • »   Shooting pains in the right lower abdomen
  • »   Continuous pain in the lower abdomen
  • »   Fever
  • »   Loss of appetite
  • »   Nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea
  • »   Sometimes repeated episodes of pain in the right lower abdomen maybe secondary to chronic appendicitis which differs from acute appendicitis



Surgery step-by-step

  • »   You will be administered general anesthesia for this procedure.
  • »   Laparoscopic appendectomies are performed using a cannula (a narrow tube like instrument) through which the surgeon enters the abdomen.
  • »   A laparoscope (a tiny telescope connected to a video camera) is inserted through a cannula, giving the surgeon a magnified view of the patient's internal organs on a television monitor.
  • »   2 to 3 other cannulas are inserted to allow the surgeon to work inside and remove the appendix. The entire procedure will be completed through the cannulas inserted using 5 mm cuts. If done by the single incision technique, there is one single cut in the navel which is hardly visible after healing.

Cholecystectomy

 

When you experience discomfort or pain due to the formation of stones in your gallbladder it is likely you need a laparoscopic gallbladder surgery or cholecystectomy. Traditionally this procedure was performed through open surgery but at Naveli Hospital we do it laparoscopically without cutting open the abdomen. This ensures you experience minimal pain and scarring.








This procedure can also be performed through a single incision.


Know the symptoms

If you experience more than one of these symptoms it's likely that medical intervention is required.

  • »   Indigestion post-consumption of food
  • »   Severe acidity or fullness in the abdomen after meals
  • »   Acute pain in the upper right side of the abdomen that lasts between 2 to 4 hours
  • »   Pain in the back that lasts for 2 to 4 hours
  • »   Repeated episodes of pain in the right upper abdomen
  • »   Chills
  • »   Fever
  • »   Vomiting
  • »   Skin and urine turning yellow (Jaundice)


Surgery step-by-step


  • »   You will be administered general anesthesia so that you experience no pain throughout the procedure.
  • »   Using a cannula (a narrow tube-like instrument), the surgeon enters the abdomen in the area of the belly button.
  • »   A laparoscope (a tiny telescope) connected to a special camera is inserted through the cannula, giving the surgeon a magnified view of your internal organs on a television screen.
  • »   Other cannulas are inserted which allow your surgeon to delicately separate the gallbladder from its attachments and then remove it through one of the openings.
  • »   Many surgeons perform an X-ray, called a cholangiogram, to identify stones, which may be located in the bile channels, or to ensure that structures have been identified.
  • »   After the surgeon removes the gallbladder, the small incisions are closed with a stitch or two or with surgical tape.
  • »   The surgeon may insert a small tube (drain) if needed. This will be removed before you are discharged.
  • »   If the surgeon finds one or more stones in the common bile duct, he may remove them with a special scope or the surgeon may choose to have them removed later through a second minimally invasive procedure (ERCP).
