  • Improves Quality of Life

How Is It Done?

  1. Open surgery: The surgeon makes one large incision to open up the body and then proceeds further.

  2. Minimally invasive surgery or laparoscopic surgery: This surgery is done using a camera that is inserted through a small incision. The smaller cuts usually heal faster as compared to a large cut of open surgery.

  3. Anesthesia used during the surgery stops any feelings of pain. Local or regional anesthesia numbs a certain part of the body while general anesthesia helps to put the person into a deep sleep.


Take Away

Recovery time after the surgery depends on how invasive it was. With some simple surgeries, like a colonoscopy, you can right away get back to your regular activities. More invasive surgeries need some time to heal. The best that can be done is to follow your doctor’s instructions.
