Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix (a small, worm like appendage attached to the colon), when the appendix becomes blocked or bacteria infect the wall of the appendix. Diagnosis and treatment of Appendicitis can be challenging because half of all patients who have appendicitis do not have typical symptoms. The renowned Laparoscopic and bariatric surgeon Dr. R K Sinha provides the best treatment for Appendicitis in Mumbai and his reach extending to all major cities in India.
If you have ruptured appendix, appendectomy (surgery to remove the appendix) is necessary. The doctor perform this procedure through laparoscopy. The most common symptoms and signs of appendicitis are the following
- Abdominal pain
- Abdominal tenderness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
Doctors believe that obstruction in the appendix, that may be either partial or complete may cause appendicitis. The complete obstruction is chronic, which needs emergency surgery. Obstruction may be due to trauma, tumors, worms, enlarged lymphoid follicles etc. These obstruction causes the bacteria to multiply inside the organ which leads to the formation of pus. Another cause of a ruptured appendix is Peritonitis, which is an inflammation of the tissue that lines the abdominal wall.
Once Appendicitis is diagnosed, in mild conditions doctors may decide to treat the patient just with antibiotics. In most cases appendectomy is performed by laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopic Surgery or Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is a keyhole surgery. In this procedure the surgeon inserts a thin tube called laparoscope which has a tiny video camera and a light into the abdomen. This helps him to view the insides of the abdomen on a monitor and remove the appendix through small abdominal incisions. Minimal loss of blood, size of incisions and less recovery time are the advantages of Laparoscopic surgery.
