About Spleen Removal Surgery

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Spleen Removal Surgery?
Spleen removal surgery, known as splenectomy, is a surgical procedure in which a diseased or damaged spleen is partially or completely removed.

How is Splenectomy Performed?
Spleen removal surgery can be performed by an open surgery or by a laparoscopic method. The surgery may be done to completely remove the spleen that is enlarged or ruptured, or the spleen may also be partially removed.

Open-complete splenectomy to remove an enlarged spleen

  • An incision is made in the middle of the abdomen, or on the left side of the abdomen below the ribs.
  • The artery connected to the spleen is tied to avoid blood loss.
  • The ligaments that hold the spleen are detached and the spleen is removed.
  • If required, tissue samples are extracted and sent for lab analysis.
  • After the surgery is over, the incision is closed.

Open-complete splenectomy to remove a ruptured spleen
  • An incision is made in the middle of the abdomen, or on the left side of the abdomen below the ribs.
  • The spleen is approached from the underside and the artery connected to the spleen is tied.
  • The ligaments that hold the spleen are detached and the ruptured spleen is removed.
  • After the surgery is over, the incision is closed.

Partial splenectomy
  • Sometimes only part of the spleen is removed to reduce pain that is caused by an enlarged spleen.
  • In partial splenectomy, the patient is less vulnerable to infection.

Laparoscopic splenectomy
A laparoscopic splenectomy may be performed if the spleen is less than 20 centimeters long, when measured in a CT scan.
  • Three to five incisions are made on the patient’s abdomen.
  • A laparoscope, which is an endoscopic instrument with a light and camera attached to it, is inserted through one of the incisions.
  • Other surgical instruments are inserted through the other incisions.
  • Gas is pumped into the abdomen to inflate it, so that the surgeon gets more space to work.
  • The spleen is removed using the laparoscope and other surgical instruments.

How to Prepare for the Spleen Removal Surgery?
  • The patient needs a complete physical check up.
  • Some blood tests and imaging tests are also required.
  • Blood transfusion may also be required.
  • The patient may need some immunization vaccines.
  • If the patient is a smoker, the patient should quit smoking some weeks before the surgery.
  • Certain medications that the patient may be taking should be stopped a week before the surgery.
  • The patients should inform the doctor about any ailments and medical conditions.
