Private Laparoscopy Treatment Abroad Avoiding NHS Waiting Time
Laparoscopy is a method of surgical treatment which can be performed abroad to make it much cheaper involving the execution of small incisions through which optics and a small surgical tool are introduced into the abdominal cavity. With this medical equipment abdominal cavity is inspected. During laparoscopy treatment there is a possibility to perform a variety of gynaecological treatments, e.g. enucleation of ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids. Laparoscopy treatment can be applied in the course of the female infertility treatment. Private clinics abroad offer the possibility of performing both diagnostic and surgical laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy, can also be known as diagnostic laparoscopy surgery, that is a surgical diagnostic treatment used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive treatment that can be performed abroad for much less cost. Laparoscopy surgery uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor. Laparoscopy allows your private doctor to see inside your body in real time, without open surgery. Laparoscopy is usually performed when other, non-invasive methods are unable to help with diagnosis.
In many cases, abdominal problems can also be diagnosed with imaging techniques such as: ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the body, CT scan, which is a series of special X-rays that take cross-sectional images of the body, MRI, which uses magnets and radio waves to produce images of the body. Laparoscopy is performed when these tests don’t provide enough information or insight for a diagnosis. The laparoscopy treatment abroad may also be used to take a biopsy, or sample of tissue, from a particular organ in the abdomen. Your doctor may recommend laparoscopy to examine the following organs: appendix, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, small and large bowel, spleen, stomach, pelvic or reproductive organs.
By observing these areas with a laparoscope, your doctor can detect: an abdominal mass or tumor, fluid in the abdominal cavity, liver disease, the effectiveness of certain treatments performed abroad to make it much cheaper, the degree to which a particular cancer has progressed.
Laparoscopy is usually done as an outpatient treatment abroad for much cheaper than in the UK. This means that you’ll be able to go home the same day as your surgery or back to where ever you are staying abroad. It may be performed in a hospital or at private outpatient surgical centre. You’ll likely be given general anaesthesia for this type of surgery. This means that you will sleep through the laparoscopy treatment and will not feel any pain. In some cases, local anaesthesia is used instead. A local anesthetic numbs the area, so even though you will be awake during the surgery, you will not feel any pain. During laparoscopy, an incision will be made below your belly button. A small tube called a cannula will then be inserted. The cannula is used to inflate your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. This gas allows your doctor to see your abdominal organs more clearly. Once the abdomen is inflated, the laparoscope will be inserted through the incision. The camera attached to the laparoscope will display the images on a screen, allowing your doctor to see your organs in real time. Up to a total of four cuts will be made. These incisions allow other instruments to be inserted. For example, your doctor may need to use another surgical tool to perform a biopsy. During a biopsy, your doctor will take a small sample of tissue from an organ to be evaluated. After the laparoscopy treatment is done, the instruments will be removed. Your incisions will be closed with stitches or surgical tape. Bandages may be placed over the incisions.
Laparoscopy treatments can be covered by NHS and can be refunded, if laparoscopy treatment is received in a private clinic abroad. Laparoscopy treatment abroad could be alternative you can afford.
Now NHS allows you to bypass the NHS queue for laparoscopy, by reimbursing costs of treatment, if you receive private treatment abroad.
It is possible to receive laparoscopy pre treatment and after treatment consultation in London.
