What issue does laparoscopic appendectomy solve?

A laparoscopic appendectomy is performed to remove your appendix after you show symptoms of appendicitis. Appendicitis is a medical emergency, when your appendix becomes sore, swollen, and infected. There is a risk your appendix may burst or rupture as soon as 48 to 72 hours after symptoms appear. This can cause a severe, life-threatening infection called peritonitis.
