All humans want to be healthy fit and disease-free throughout their lives, but not all of them eat an apple daily, jokes aside, people tend to get sick when they didn’t expect, one of that awful disease is Hernia.
A hernia is a deadly disease that shouldn’t be neglected, it occurs when fatty tissue or an organ pushes through and fills up extra space in the human body, this can cause blockage and can be painful. A hernia is not a self-treatable illness and in most cases, surgery is recommended.
But the catch is people are afraid of surgery because of the failure rate and the painful procedures that come with it, but in modern times come modern solutions and laparoscopy is one of them which can effectively treat a hernia.
A brief on laparoscopy
Medical science terms look and sound horrible but most often they are not. Laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique since it is the latest technique of surgery, it is relatively safe, but one should be precautious of some minor risks such as, internal bleeding, infection, or damage to the blood vessels or other organs, but the good news is that there is only 1% chance of that happening and there is an 80% survival rate which is very high.
How laparoscopic surgery effectively treats the disease?
The best part about laparoscopic surgery is that the patient can go home the same day as of the surgery or within 2 to 3 weeks after the operation, in simple words, there is a fast recovery rate.
The surgery is painless which means the patient can fearlessly get operated on.
Advantages of laparoscopy over other treatments for hernia –
Compared to other types of hernia treatment there are several benefits of getting laparoscopic surgery.
Less postoperative pain: – The procedure is painless as well as there will be less pain after an operation so that the patient can focus more on what they are going to do during the recovery time, instead of going to the doctor over and over again for getting the pain treated.
Low risk of recurrence: – There is minimal chance of the hernia occurring again after surgery, a 5% recurrence chance is fairly low as compared to other types of treatment.
Excellent cosmetic result: – This means that the area where the incisions were made during operation will be back to normal shape and functioning within the minimal recovery time of 7 weeks and after that, the patient can resume normal work life.
Increased quality of life: – After 1 year of operation pain, fatigue and movement limitation will be gone.
Minimal blood loss: – The loss of blood during operation can cause more harm than good, complications such as coma or death, but in the case of laparoscopic surgery, there is minimal blood loss and low bleeding after an operation which is acceptable and risk-free.
