Pediatric Laparoscopy in Nagpur - Dr. Jitendra Hazare

What is Pediatric Laparoscopic?

Your child’s doctor may do laparoscopic surgery to avoid major surgery and a lengthy recovery period. Small, hollow tubes called cannulas are inserted via small cuts (incisions) in your child’s skin during this type of surgery. The tubes are then fitted with appropriate devices. These gadgets allow the doctor to look into your kid and operate on them. Dr. Jitendra Hazare is one of the best Pediatric surgeons with more than 25 years of experience. He provides Pediatric Laparoscopy in Nagpur.

Understanding Your Child’s Surgery

To put your youngster to sleep, he will be given medication. Depending on the kind of surgery, three to five tiny slits will be cut in his abdomen: one near his belly button, one on either side of his belly, and one above or below the belly button. To provide room for the surgeon to work, a tube is inserted into one of the slits and the abdomen is filled with carbon dioxide. One of the tubes is inserted with a tiny telescope known as a laparoscope. In the Operating Room, a television screen displays an image of your child’s insides. The surgeon inserts tools into the tubes at the other places to do the procedure.

  • Your child will awaken in the PACU, which is located near the operation area. He or she might spend 1 to 2 hours in the PACU.
  • Your child will be returned to his room as soon as he has recovered from the anesthesia.
  • Through an IV, your kid will receive necessary fluids and medications, such as antibiotics and pain relievers (intravenous line). When he is able to swallow liquids, he will take pain medication by mouth.
  • Soon after surgery, your child will need to get up and walkabout. This will aid in the "awakening" of the bowels, as well as breathing and blood circulation.
  • Your child's skin will have 3 to 5 small slits. A gauze and tape dressing may be used to close the slit near the belly button. 3 to 4 days following surgery, the dressing can be removed. Leave little strips of white tape or a clear dressing in place if there are any underneath this dressing.
  • Steri-Strips will be used on the incisions at the other places. In 1 to 2 weeks, these strips will fall off on their own. If your child's doctor says it's acceptable, don't take them out.
  • For the next two weeks, your child is not permitted to swim or bathe in a tub.
  • Showers are permitted. After the shower, the incision areas should be thoroughly dried.

For any of the following, contact your child's doctor:

  • Vomiting
  • When an incision gets more uncomfortable or inflamed, or when it starts to split, it's time to seek medical help (pull apart)
  • Your child is unable to pass stool.
  • If your child has a stomach ache, his abdomen gets distended (full and solid).
  • Fever of more than 101 degrees by mouth or 102 degrees rectally (in the bottom of the kid)
  • If any of the incision areas get inflamed, it's time to see a doctor.
  • Any of the slits has fluid or blood around them.

When there are indicators that the intestine is operating (passing gas, a bowel movement, or "growling" sounds in the abdomen), your kid will be allowed to eat. This happens within a few hours of surgery. Your kid will be offered clear liquids such as water, fruit punch, and broth once he or she is permitted to eat. He will be permitted to eat a regular dinner if he has no difficulty drinking clear liquids.

For the first week at home, or until he sees the doctor at his follow-up visit, your child should play quietly. This includes no heavy lifting, strenuous activity, such as jogging, swimming, or cycling.
