Open vs laparoscopic surgery, what should I choose?

A surgery is a major life event that will alter your future for the good. But there are prices to pay for all the good things. Pain is just one of them. So while deciding on what kind of surgery you want, keep in mind that your recovery and healing time depends on it. Today, most surgeons prefer a laparoscopic surgery as it is more advanced and quick. The healing time, too, is small. It works well for patients as small incisions mean lesser pain and quicker recovery. Laparoscopy surgery is also friendly to the pocket, so you may want to consider that while making your decision. It is a common misconception that laparoscopy surgery is expensive.

Types of Internal Fixations

While internal and external fixations are both common to help repair damaged bones, doctors choose the procedure depending on how seriously bones are damaged. As compared to external fixations, internal fixations are more advantageous as they allow earlier mobilisation and involve less complicated casting. It also reduces the need to stay hospitalised for a longer duration, while enabling patients to return to their former routine more speedily. Internal fixations also reduce the chances of non-union or improper healing of broken bones as well as mal-union, i.e. healing in improper positions. Despite the advancement of medical procedures involving bone repairs, orthopaedic surgeons across the world are continuing their research to develop new and improved methods of treating fractures.
