Laparoscopic Surgery often referred to as minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery. Laparoscopy utilizes small (1/2 inch or smaller) incisions instead of the large incision used in traditional open surgical procedures.
Through the small incisions, access ports/ trocars are inserted into the abdominal cavity, which is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to create space between the internal organs and allow visualization and organ manipulation. One of the trocars is used to allow access to the video camera, which also has a built-in light source. The entire Surgery is done with hand held instruments from outside the abdomen visualizing at the screen with effective hand eye coordination.
This is a skilful work which requires training for adequate time for skillset to develop. Dr Kedar Patil has been trained at pioneer institute in India for this skillset for a period of 2 years and is the only Qualified Laparoscopic surgeon practising in Pune
Ordinarily, in open surgical procedures, a large incision is made on the body through which surgeons perform the surgery. Because of the large cuts, not only did the time of recovery increase, but the risks of wound infection were similarly high. Patients suffered more pain and scar marks were non-cosmetic in traditional surgery techniques. Laparoscopic surgery is useful in a large portion of the intestinal medical procedures, for example, hiatal hernia, achalasia cardia, splenectomy, pancreatic surgery, colonic surgery for ulcerative colitis, obstruction, diverticulitis, rectal prolapse, and cancer.

The new equipment and technologies developed in the field have further helped surgeons to precisely guide their developments during the diagnosis and the surgery.
What is the recovery time after Laparoscopic Surgery?
The recovery time may vary from person to person, as each individual heals differently. Laparoscopic Surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia, so it may take some time before the patient wakes up after the general anaesthesia procedure. A patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few hours or some days depending upon the surgery performed and his/her medical condition. A patient may be advised to take medications and avoid travelling, lifting any heavy things. If there are no complications then patients can resume their normal routine within a week.
Patients may experience some minimal pain and tiredness after the surgery, but if the pain persists then it is advised to immediately inform the concerned doctors to manage the pain. It is also necessary to relax and slow things down to make sure that recovery is faster.
