What is Intestinal Surgery?

What is done during the surgery?
At Aarvy Hospital gurgaon, during an open surgery, the surgeon will locate the part of your small intestine that is diseased. Then the surgeon will put clamps on both ends of this part to close it off. The surgeon will remove the diseased part. However during a laparoscopic surgery, the intestines are approached using the laparoscope so the cuts and scars are minimal. The surgeon performs the procedure and gets out of the abdomen through the mini holes. The diseased part is removed and ends are stitched together.
Laparoscopy is associated with faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, and smaller surgical scars, but requires advanced training on the part of the surgeon.
