hello ,
welcome to hcmagic

well mohan, appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix,a piece of intestinal remant,which is non functional in humans. When an appendix is removed laparoscopically, it only needs 3 holes to put in abdomen.Surgical instruments are inserted through the incisions and are used to remove the appendix.
if laparoscopic appendectomy is done, recovery is faster and are in less pain as compared to traditional open surgery. Additionally, they will spend less time in the hospital since the incisions are likely to heal faster. so it is advisable to dolaproscopy for your relative
and the cost of appendesectomy is usually cheap,in our country,
it varies based on the institution ,i wont reveal the exact about here,but it is affordable to an average person.
hope helped your query
