How is it treated?

At MGM Hospital CBD, our experienced surgical team works closely with each patient to determine the best approach for their individual needs and medical history. Our goal is to provide safe and effective treatment while minimizing pain and discomfort, and ensuring a speedy recovery.
The treatment of appendicitis typically involves surgery to remove the inflamed appendix, as well as antibiotics to control any infection that may be present.

In some cases, if the diagnosis is uncertain or the patient is not fit for surgery, antibiotics may be given to control the infection and the patient may be closely monitored.

Surgical removal of the appendix can be done using laparoscopic or open techniques. Laparoscopic appendectomy involves making a few small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope and other surgical instruments are inserted. Open appendectomy involves making a larger incision in the lower right side of the abdomen to remove the appendix.

Laparoscopic appendectomy

Laparoscopic appendectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove the appendix. It is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves making a few small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope and other surgical instruments are inserted.

Minimally invasive appendectomy

A minimally invasive appendectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix, which is a small pouch-shaped organ attached to the large intestine. This procedure is typically performed using a laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera and surgical instruments that are inserted through small incisions in the abdomen.

Keyhole surgery for appendicitis

Keyhole surgery for appendicitis is another term for minimally invasive appendectomy, which is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix using small incisions and a laparoscope. The laparoscope is a thin tube with a camera and surgical instruments that allow the surgeon to see and remove the appendix through small incisions in the abdomen.
The term "keyhole" refers to the small incisions used in this procedure, which are typically less than 1 inch in size. The laparoscope and instruments are inserted through these small incisions, which results in less scarring and a faster recovery time compared to traditional open surgery.

Open Surgery

Open surgery for appendicitis is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix using a single larger incision in the abdomen. During this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision typically about 2 to 4 inches in length in the lower right side of the abdomen and removes the appendix.
