Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery
The appendix (uh-PEN-dix) is a narrow, finger-shaped organ located on the lower right side of the belly. It is connected to the large intestine and has no function in humans. Appendectomy (app-pen-DECK-toe-me) is done as emergency surgery for appendicitis because the appendix has become inflamed (swollen) and needs to be removed. If it is not removed, it could burst and cause an infection called peritonitis (per-i-toe-NY-tus ) in the abdomen. Please contact us for additional information! 9990385040.
