Keyhole Surgery

What is Keyhole Surgery?

Keyhole surgery is an advanced surgery method that uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to perform a number of surgical operations. This technique uses a special thin and flexible surgical tube, called a laparoscope, which allows the surgeon to perform abdominal and pelvic surgical operations without the need for large incisions.

The laparoscope is a small and thin tube which is attached with a cold light source and a high definition video camera. These help the surgeon to get a clear view of the operation site inside the abdomen or the pelvis on a video monitor.

When is Keyhole Surgery needed?

Keyhole surgery (laparoscopy) is most useful in diagnosing and treating a number of medical disorders. This procedure requires using special miniaturized surgical instruments to perform the required surgical procedure. These surgical instruments are inserted using very small (keyhole) incisions similar to the one used to insert the laparoscope.

Keyhole Surgery for Diagnosis

There are numerous medical conditions that can be better diagnosed using non-invasive methods (e.g. ultrasound testing, CT scans, MRI scans, etc) however the best way to study the affected body part is to view it in magnified and clear detail using a laparoscope.

These are the carious medical conditions that are diagnosed using Keyhole surgery:

  • PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) – This causes a bacterial infection in the female genital tract, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes and womb.
  • Endometriosis – This condition causes small pieces of the womb lining to protrude out from the womb.
  • Ectopic Pregnancy – This type of pregnancy develops outside the womb.
  • Fibroids – These are small non-cancerous growth seen in the womb and around it.
  • Ovarian Cyst – This is a fluid-filled sac which occurs in the ovaries.
  • Appendicitis
  • Female infertility

Keyhole surgery is also helpful in detecting certain cancers with a biopsy. It includes removing a small part of the cancerous tissue from the tumor and performing a detailed pathological analysis on it.

These are the forms of cancer that are successfully diagnosed using keyhole surgery:

Keyhole Surgery for Treatment

Keyhole surgery is useful in treating a large number of medical disorders, such as:

  • Appendectomy – This minimally invasive surgery involves removing the herniated appendicitis which is at risk of bursting and causing further complications.
  • Gallstone surgery – This involves removing the gallbladder to treat gallstones.
  • Intestine removal – This includes removing a portion of the large intestine in order to treat Cohn’s disease or diverticulitis which is not responding to non-surgical methods of treatment.
  • Hernia surgery – This is usually used to repair hernia found in the abdomen or the groin area.
  • Ulcer surgery – This involves treating bleeding or burst stomach ulcers.
  • Bariatric (Weight-loss) surgery
  • Organ removal for cancer treatment
  • Ectopic pregnancy treatment
  • Fibroid removal
  • Hysterectomy – This involves removing the womb which is affected with inflammatory pelvic disease (PID) including the bladder, kidney, colon, liver, prostate, etc.

What is Robotic Assisted Keyhole (Laparoscopic) Surgery?

This is an even more advanced laparoscopic surgery procedure which uses comparatively more precise and accurate robots to take the place of the surgeon’s hands.

This procedure involves using a computer console which is part of the robotic-assisted surgical treatment technique. This device has a control panel which controls the various robotic limbs to perform the required actions for the surgery. Every robotic limb has a special camera and surgical instrument attached to it.

This highly-advanced surgery technique provides detailed 3 D images of the operational site and also allows for more dexterity while performing the surgery.

This sophisticated surgical technique has helped countless doctors and surgeons across the world to perform complex and difficult surgical procedures with better precision and more efficiency. This technique is also deemed more advantageous for its various benefits.

What are the benefits or advantages of Keyhole Surgery?

These are the exclusive benefits of a keyhole surgery:

  • Lesser number of incisions
  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
