Laparoscopic Splenectomy

About Treatment

Our laparoscopic splenectomy procedure at Leads Medical Center is intended to provide a minimally invasive method of spleen extraction. Patients with problems like splenomegaly, certain blood disorders, or spleen injuries that are not treatable with medicine are usually advised to have this treatment done.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing to have a laparoscopic splenectomy should only be done after consulting with your surgical team in great detail. You should discuss the reasons for the spleen removal, your particular medical condition, and whether the laparoscopic approach is appropriate given your general state of health.

Vaccinations against specific bacteria, such as meningococcus, pneumococcus, and Haemophilus influenzae type B, are necessary for patients since their risk of contracting infections from these organisms is increased when they lack a spleen. Generally speaking, if at all possible, vaccinations should be completed prior to surgery.
Although everyone recovers differently, the majority of patients are able to go home a few days after treatment. It may take a few weeks for full healing; during this time, physically demanding activities should be avoided. The hospital will give advice on wound care and pain control.

Benefits of the laparoscopic technique often include less pain after surgery, smaller scars, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, and a decreased risk of infection.

Before a laparoscopic splenectomy, you should usually fast for a specific amount of time prior to the procedure, have several preoperative tests performed (such as imaging studies and blood tests), and talk to your doctor about any medications you are currently taking to see if any changes need to be made.
