Adhesions are scars that usually form in the abdomen or pelvis that cause chronic abdominal pain in some individuals. When tissue is injured from trauma or surgery, adhesions develop naturally as part of the normal healing process. Lysis of adhesions is the process of cutting scar tissue within the body to restore normal function and reduce pain.
The surgery to fix adhesions is usually done laparoscopically (small, tiny key holes placed and uses pinpoint camera and tiny tools that fix through the tiny openings in the patient’s body) under anesthesia lasting about 1-3 hours. A gas is injected into the abdomen to expend the area. The surgeon will make several small incisions in the wall of the abdomen cutting out the adhesions, which free the organs that were caught in the adhesions.
