Laparotomy in Lagos
A laparotomy is a surgical procedure that involves cutting into the abdominal cavity.
A laparotomy is used to examine the abdominal organs and aid in the diagnosis of any issues.
When your surgeon wants to diagnose conditions like severe abdominal pain, a laparotomy procedure is preferred. Your surgeon won’t be able to perform a laparoscopic procedure if the exact cause of the pain is unknown. In such cases, your abdomen must be opened so that the doctor can examine each organ and accurately diagnose the source of your abdominal pain. Once the problem has been identified, it can be treated at the same time, or a second surgical procedure may be required in some cases.
