How do you remove an appendix?

This will take a very common operation, its what we call an "Appendectomy". You will need a General sugreon and a Anesthesiologist. There are two ways this procedure is done. The perferred method is done laproscopicly, meaning using a camera with a minimal incision site. The other way is "Open" meaing the incision site is much larger about 12 inches in your right lower abdomen. An open appendectomy is only done when the surgeon is not sure the appendix is the problem of cause. This way they can look and feel around for other causes for your symptoms.
