To Make an Appointment

Laparoscopic appendectomy is a minimally invasive modality that aims at the surgical removal of the appendix. As the name suggests, the procedure is carried out via multiple tiny incisions and comes with a lot of benefits. The appendix is a tiny pouch that is connected to the colon and does not have any specified function. The appendix can get infected due to a variety of different reasons, leading to inflammation and swelling. This is commonly referred to as appendicitis. 

Major indications of laparoscopic appendectomy include:

  • Acute appendicitis
  • Recurrent appendicitis
  • Carcinoid tumours
  • As interval appendectomy post abscess drainage


  • The surgical procedure is carried out under the influence of general anaesthesia.
  • This is followed by making tiny incisions on the patient's abdomen. 
  • A cannula will be used to fill the patient's stomach with carbon dioxide gas, to inflate it for better access.
  • The laparoscope, which is a long narrow tube with the camera fitted on one of its ends, is inserted via one of the incisions for detailed imaging guidance. 
  • The appendix is carefully tied and removed and the season will be closed. 


  • High cosmetic satisfaction with minimal scarring 
  • Faster recovery
  • Reduce pain
  • Short hospital stay
