I love the surgeon and staff here. They are very attentive, caring, and professional. I have received nothing but 5 star treatment. The surgeon helped me feel relaxed about my surgery and the nurse makes me feel comfortable and feel ok. They even help me to get back home sooner. Cannot praise everyone enough. They were absolutely fantastic. Plus, the waiting time is short and the clinic is very clean.
I understand why this hospital is considered the best in Thailand. Traveled all the way from Australia to get my treatment here after I heard good things about it. Superb staff, very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Many of the staff can speak English, so communication is not a problem. I asked many questions and told them my concerns, and they answered patiently and put me at ease. Had to stay for several days after my treatment. The room was super clean, well-designed, and definitely made me feel comfortable. The nurses checked on me every hour or so, and the food was surprisingly great. Though having to stay in a hospital is never a good experience, I would say my time in Bumrungrad was a pleasant one. A bit pricey when compared to other hospitals around the area, but with the quality service and high-level care offered, it was all worth it.

Diagnostic laparoscopy is a surgical procedure performed to diagnose or examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is minimally invasive, low risk, and requires small incisions. The procedure allows doctors to see inside the patient’s body without open surgery. Doctors can also obtain biopsy samples during a diagnostic laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy is normally performed under general anesthetic, meaning you will be asleep and will not feel any pain. Your surgeon makes a small incision on your abdomen to insert a cannula, which is a small tube used to inflate your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. The gas allows your surgeon to see your abdominal organs clearly. Then, your surgeon inserts the laparoscope – a flexible tube with a light and a tiny camera attached to its end. The laparoscope allows your doctor to see your organ in real-time.
Laparoscopy is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means you can leave the hospital a few hours after the procedure. In some cases, you will need to stay in the hospital overnight and to stay in the Thailand for at least three days after the procedure.
During the first few days, you will feel some discomfort and pain. However, you may be able to return to all your normal activities 5 days after the procedure.
As soon as you can, begin light activity to reduce the risk of blood clots, but avoid strenuous exercises. You may also need to get more sleep than you normally would do. Your doctor will give you instructions regarding your diet and caring for the wounds. You will have a follow-up appointment with your local doctor to go over the result.
Diagnostic laparoscopy has a high success rate, ranging between 90% to 100%. The side effects and risks include bleeding, damage to organs, and infection, but that is very rare.
In many cases, you can undergo non-invasive methods to diagnose your abdominal problems. These non-invasive methods include ultrasound, MRI scan, and CT scan. However, when all of these tests do not provide enough information, your alternative is to undergo exploratory laparotomy, which is an open surgery that carries a higher risk than diagnostic laparoscopy.
Diagnostic laparoscopy provides information about your abdominal problems. Therefore, after a diagnostic laparoscopy, you will know what is causing your abdominal pain, and your doctor can take further steps to treat your condition.
Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
