What is the various types of appendectomy cost in India?

Laparoscopic appendectomyFrom 20,000 up to 4,50,000
Open appendectomyFrom 10,000 up to 3,80,000

Laparoscopic appendectomy: In this surgery, a small cut is made near the navel and a port is inserted through it. Through which, a cannula is inserted. Cannula is used to fill the abdomen cavity with carbon dioxide, which creates room for surgery and allows more clear images of the stomach cavity and its contents.

The cannula is removed and the laparoscope is inserted, which allows the process of surgery to be seen on the video screen, which assists the surgeon in the discovery of the appendix.

Open appendectomy

A large cut is made on the lower right side of the abdomen, which helps in the separation of stomach muscles and assists in finding the appendix. In case of a rupture in the appendix, abdominal fluid or swelling needs to be drained prior to the surgery. Normal saline solution is used for rinsing of the abdominal cavity. 

A common process involved in both types of appendectomy is closing the appendix with stitches, detaching it from the intestine and then finally removing it.
