Adhesiolysis

blog

Random and unpredictable scar tissue formation can be a result of major operations in the abdomen. Scar tissue inside the abdomen may lead to chronic pain in the abdomen or repetitive bowel obstruction episodes. Adhesion refers to a band of scar tissue that develops in response to any tissue disturbance (that may be caused by a previous abdominal operation). Laparoscopic adhesiolysis is the surgery performed to remove or divide adhesions to restore normal anatomy and organ function and relieve painful symptoms.
