Diagnostic Laparoscopy

appendics treatment in delhi


If you have been advised a diagnostic laparoscopy procedure it simply means your doctor wants to take a direct look inside your abdominal and pelvic region to detect abnormalities if any.

As the name suggests these are procedures that aid diagnosis of your condition and help your diagnostic laparoscopy doctor treat you better.

How It Works

Preparing for a Diagnostic Laparoscopy

  • You are not supposed to eat or drink before the procedure

If you are on any medication it is not required to stop taking them. Any change in ongoing medication must be made only after talking to your doctor.

What to Expect During the Procedure?

When prescribed a diagnostic laparoscopy procedure expect the following –

  • The procedure will be carried out in the surgical center of a hospital
  • You will be put under general anesthesia so that the process is pain free
  • The process involves giving a small incision just below the patient’s belly button
  • This is done to enable easy insertion of a hollow tube or needle which helps pass carbon dioxide into the region. The gas expands the area and helps the surgeon to work easily.
  • The surgeon then inserts a laparoscope (camera) through the insertion to see the contents of the pelvis or the abdomen.
  • Sometimes in case of a gynecologic laparoscopy, the surgeons also inject a dye to assess the fallopian tubes.
  • Once the complete examination is done, the instruments are removed and the incision is closed.
  • Expect to see the area bandaged for protection and faster healing.

You may experience a frequent urge to pass urine and some pain the shoulders after the procedure. That is normal and will subside in a few days. Usually you need not stay overnight at the diagnostic laparoscopy hospital after the procedure. Expect to be discharged after a few hours of rest.
