The appendix is a remnant piece of intestine about the size of a small pinky. If someone has an infection of this organ (appendicitis), the recommended treatment is surgical removal of the appendix. This procedure can be performed laparoscopically, in about 30 minutes, using small stab incisions in the skin, using a camera and tiny laparoscopic instruments. The traditional method of using a large skin incision and open surgery is not required with this minimally invasive approach. Once the appendix is removed, patients tend to recover, and are discharged home.
If you have intermittent pain in your right lower abdomen, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about proper diagnosis and treatment options.
