A laparotomy, also known as a celiotomy, is a surgical procedure that involves a large incision into the abdominal wall. It is performed to gain access into the abdominal cavity so a doctor can examine the abdominal organs such as the Stomach, Gallbladder, and Liver and diagnose any problem in that area.

What does the Procedure Involve?

A laparotomy is done under general anesthesia. Your surgeon makes a single incision in the abdomen to get a clear view of the underlying organs. Then, the organs are examined. The problem may be fixed right away or later in a second operation. Once the procedure is finished, the incisions are closed with stitches.

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?
