Open Surgery VS Laparoscopic Surgery

Open surgery is the traditional procedure of making a single incision of few centimetres or more in length to gain access to the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery, in contrast, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses multiple incisions of one-quarter or less.  Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen (belly) and pelvis without making large incisions in the skin. This procedure is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery.  Search for the best laparoscopic surgeon in Chennai!

Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is surgery in which a short, thin tube (trocar) is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision (less than 1 cm). Elongated instruments are inserted into these trocars. Surgeons use these instruments to manipulate, cut and suture tissue.  Minimally invasive surgery, or laparoscopy, continues to transform the field of gynecologic surgery and is now the standard of care for the surgical treatment of many gynecological diseases.


Laparoscopy has played a major role in infertility, treatment of endometriosis, removal of uterine fibroids, hysterectomy, and more recently pelvic organ prolapse, treatment of urinary incontinence, and even treatment of gynecologic cancers. The advantages of this surgery include reduced recovery time, minimized pain and length of hospital stay, and improved aesthetic results, making laparoscopy very popular with patients and surgeons.

Become familiar with your anatomy.Laparoscopic gynecology or gynecologic laparoscopyis a less invasive alternative to open surgery. This procedure uses a laparoscope, an elongated tube with a light attached to a camera, to examine the pelvic area and diagnose or treat gynecologic conditions.


A small incision is made across the abdomen where the laparoscope will be inserted. A few more small incisions may be made to insert special surgical instruments. Open surgery is highly invasive and usually requires a large incision. Laparoscopic surgery also generally speeds healing.

  • Removal of the uterus (hysterectomy)
  • Removal of tumor from ovary or uterus
  • Endometriosis (endometrial tissue, tissue lining the uterus, presence in places outside the uterus)
  • Removal of adhesions and scar tissue
  • Tube sterilization (permanent sterilization)
  • Surgery to treat uterine prolapse (when the uterus loses its internal support and hangs toward or out of the vagina)

Laparoscopy is usually done under general anesthesia. Therefore, there is no pain during the operation. This means that you will stay unconsciousness during the surgery. A needle is inserted into the abdomen to inject carbon dioxide gas. The gas expands the abdominal cavity by making the organs more visible and pulling the abdominal wall away from the organs, reducing the risk of injury to abdominal organs.
