All the surgical interventions are performed in laparoscopy, but what does “laparoscopy” means? It is an approach that allows to perform surgery without resorting to long wounds of the abdominal wall. To enter the abdominal cavity, small incisions from 3 to 10mm in length are made, through which are introduced little cannulas, inside which both operating instruments and a very high definition camera with 3D or 4K technology pass.
The operating field is enlarged many times, so to allow the surgeon to identify the finest details. Everything is projected on a 55-inch screen. To have an adequate operating field the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide, which guarantees a space between the intestine and the abdominal wall, allowing the surgeon to operate easily. Carbon dioxide also blocks the production of pro-inflammatory substances, guaranteeing that typical fast recovery after a laparoscopic surgery and quickly leading the patient to the expected well-being. In fact, in traditional cutting operation, part of the feeling of being unwell was also due to the release of pro-inflammatory substances, which caused pain and exhaustion in sites far from the surgical incision.
The operating room staff and surgical instruments are different from traditional surgery, guaranteeing a perfect fusion between surgeon and technology, that allows a much more precise surgery , without bleeding, and a rapid recovery. In fact, the absence of long scars like from traditional surgery, guarantees an almost absent postoperative pain, and a very early return to normal activities. Generally, the day after the patient stands up independently, and after a few time the scars become almost invisible, as if nothing ever happened.
