Best Appendicitis Treatment in Chennai

Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. It may be acute or chronic. Appendicitis occurs most often between the ages of 10 and 30. It is most common in women rather than in men. Appendicitis is a medical emergency that requires prompt surgery to cut out  the appendix. Left untreated, an inflamed appendix will eventually burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. This can lead to peritonitis, a serious inflammation of the abdominal cavity's lining that can be fatal unless it is treated quickly with strong antibiotics.
