The concept of laparoscopy gained significance with the growth of civilizations, modernization, and development to reduce the suffering that was already present in the form of a disease that needed to be treated.
The growth of laparoscopic surgeries represents the way the medical fraternity’s thought process became milder, more empathetic, and peace-loving.
Rather than the enthusiasm and heroism of making larger incisions and sending the patient home with a wide, thick, and painful scar that fights without healing for a long time, at least some surgeons in modern medicine history believed in the more ethical and empathetic concept of causing less harm, pain, and morbidity.
If this is the ethical side of the story, there is a much more parallel and equally significant financial side too.
As we all know, laparoscopy is more prevalent and popular in gynecology than in any other branch of medicine. The way society has become more woman-friendly and gender-neutral, at least in the records, and with the increasing proportion of working women, the number of days missed due to diseases and their treatment results in a significant reduction in the woman’s work efficiency and duration, directly or indirectly with an economic impact on the woman, her family, her workplace, and, eventually, the state and national economy.
As a result, providing each patient with the most peaceful mode of treatment for any disease is critical in guiding any nation to ultimate development.
The ignorance of the doctor standing between a patient, his or her disease, and its cure is as shameful as any other barrier or hindrance to the growth of a civilised population.
Let us try not to harm but to alleviate pain and suffering caused by the disease as well as during its handling and treatment through gynecological laparoscopy.
