About Appendectomy

Appendectomy is a surgical procedure that is carried out to remove the infected appendix. The condition that refers to the inflammation of appendix is known as appendicitis. Appendectomy is a medical emergency and should be performed by an expert surgeon.

The appendix is actually a thin pouch that is attached to the large intestine. It sits in the lower right part of your abdomen. If you have appendicitis, your appendix must be wiped off right away. If not treated, your appendix can burst. This is a medical emergency.

There are normally 2 types of Appendectomy that is used to remove the appendix. The standard method is an open appendectomy. A newer, less invasive method is called laparoscopic appendectomy.

Open appendectomy - A cut or incision about 2 to 4 inches long is made in the lower right-hand side of your belly or abdomen. The appendix is taken out through the incision.

Laparoscopic appendectomy - This method is less invasive. That means it’s done without a large incision. Instead, from 1 to 3 tiny cuts are made. A long, thin tube called a laparoscope is put into one of the incisions. It has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The surgeon views a TV monitor to check the inside of your abdomen and operate on the tools. The appendix is removed through one of the incisions. A laparoscopic appendectomy may cause less pain and scarring than an open appendectomy. For either type of surgery, the scar is often hard to see once it has healed.

If you have appendicitis, there is a serious risk your appendix may burst or rupture. This can take place as soon as 48 to 72 hours after you have symptoms. It can lead to a grave, life-threatening infection called peritonitis in your abdomen.

A large number of people come to India to get Appendectomy done by leading surgeons. At HealBoat, we take a smart and faster approach towards providing best references for appendectomy to people looking to get the procedure done.

India is home to many world renowned hospitals and care centers that provide best-in-class surgical care to patients.

In most of the cases cases an appendectomy is an emergency surgery and will require a hospital stay. You will have either an open appendectomy or a laparoscopic appendectomy. This will actually depend on your case and your healthcare provider’s practices.

An appendectomy is performed while you are given anesthesia to induce a deep sleep (under general anesthesia).

Normally, the appendectomy follows this process:

  • You will be asked to remove any jewelry or other objects that might get in the way during surgery.
  • You will be asked to remove your clothing and will be given a gown to wear.
  • An IV (intravenous) line will be placed in your arm or hand.
  • You will be put on the operating table lying on your back.
  • If there is a lot of hair at the surgical site, it will be cut off.
  • A tube will be put down your throat to help you breathe. The anesthesiologist will continuously monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and blood oxygen level during the surgery.

Open Appendectomy

  • A cut or incision will be made in the lower right part of your belly.
  • Your abdominal muscles will be separated and the abdominal area will be opened.
  • Your appendix will be tied off with stitches and removed.
  • f your appendix has burst or ruptured, your abdomen will be washed out with salt water (saline).
  • The lining of your abdomen and your abdominal muscles will be closed with stitches. A small tube may be put in the incision to drain out fluids.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy

  • A tiny incision will be made for the tube (laparoscope). More cuts may be made so that other tools can be used during surgery.
  • Carbon dioxide gas will be used to swell up your abdomen so that your appendix and other organs can be easily seen.
  • The laparoscope will be put in and your appendix will be found.
  • Your appendix will be tied off with stitches and removed through an incision.

After the surgery is done, the laparoscope and tools will be detached. The carbon dioxide will be let out through the cuts. A small tube may be placed in the cut to drain out fluids.

  • Procedure completion, both methods
  • Your appendix will be sent to a lab to be tested.
  • Your cuts will be closed with stitches or surgical staples.
  • A sterile bandage or dressing will be used to cover the wounds.
