What to Expect After Laparoscopic Surgery

After laparoscopy, you can expect to go to the recovery room for a few hours and most likely go home that day. Avoid strenuous activities and exercise for about a week.

Compare that to traditional surgery where you can expect to stay in the hospital for a few days and avoid strenuous activities and exercise for up to six weeks – altering your life for weeks, maybe even months.

For Dr. Kaldas and Dr. Menya, it’s important that you’re back on your feet as quickly as possible after a surgery. That’s why they focus on performing laparoscopic surgeries instead of traditional surgery.

“My initial visit with Dr. Kaldas was my third opinion prior to my surgery. Dr. Kaldas addressed my questions and concerns about the procedure patiently, with empathy and compassion. He was extremely confident regarding the laparoscopic approach and without any hesitation he assured me it could be done. My recovery pleasantly surprised me because I was up and walking the day of surgery with minimal pain medication and no post surgical complications.”
