An appendectomy is a surgery to remove the appendix. The appendix is a small, finger-shaped organ that branches off from the first part of the large intestine. It is removed when it becomes swollen (inflamed) or infected. This condition is called appendicitis.

If an appendix bursts, it can release all the toxic materials into the abdominal cavity and can be a life-threatening complication. Appendectomy is done by laparoscopic or open methods. Spinal anaesthesia if it is an open surgery, and general anaesthesia if it is laparoscopic surgery.

The appendix can be removed using small surgical cuts and a camera. This is called a laparoscopic appendectomy. Usually, 3 small cuts are required for the surgery.If you want to reconfirm any surgery need before going for surgery , you can take a second opinion from

A small tube may be left in the belly area to help drain out fluids or pus.For more details you can visit
