Is laparoscopic surgery right for me?
To find out if you’re a candidate for laparoscopic surgery, your provider reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and completes a physical examination. They may suggest you undergo blood tests, ultrasounds, CT scans, or other imaging procedures to diagnose your condition and develop an effective treatment.
How should I prepare for laparoscopic surgery?
Follow your provider’s instructions prior to undergoing laparoscopic surgery at Premier Surgical. Arrange for someone to drive you home afterward, don’t smoke, and stop taking certain medications if your specialist recommends it.
What happens during laparoscopic surgery?
During laparoscopic surgery at Premier Surgical, your provider numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative or gives you general anesthesia to make you fall asleep. They make tiny incisions and insert a special scope with a camera into targeted tissues. Your surgeon removes, repairs, or replaces affected tissues and closes any incisions.
What should I expect after laparoscopic surgery?
After laparoscopic surgery, follow all post-surgical instructions. Take medications as needed, avoid strenuous activity until your provider says it’s okay, and attend follow-up visits with your specialist. You may have to wear compression stockings after vein surgery. Keep any incision sites clean.
If you need laparoscopic surgery for varicose veins, leg swelling, hemorrhoids, or hernia repair, you can trust Premier Surgical for exceptional care. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
