Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery Details –

Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery is typically the well-liked method of removing the appendix because the recovery tends to be quicker than with open surgery.

The operation involves making 3 or 4 small cuts (incisions) in your tummy (abdomen).

Special instruments are inserted, including:

  • A tube that gas is pumped through to inflate your abdomen – this enables the surgeon to ascertain your appendix more clearly and provides them more room to figure 
  • A laparoscope – a small tube with a light and a camera, which relays images of the inside of the abdomen to a television monitor

After your appendix has been removed, dissolvable stitches may be used to close the incisions. 

If regular stitches are used, they’ll have to be removed at your GP surgery 7 to 10 days later.x
