An appendectomy is the removal of the appendix, which is most often performed for acute appendicitis (infection of the appendix). If left untreated, an infected appendix may burst and cause an abdominal infection, sometimes resulting in severe illness. Laparoscopic appendectomy is the removal of the appendix using a tiny camera and three small incisions. Patients can usually be discharged home within 24 hours and return to activities of daily living within a few days.
