Minimal Access Surgery



Our minimal access service uses a range of medical and surgical options to help manage common and potentially debilitating medical conditions. Minimal access surgery implies that a limited incision length or limited number of small incisions in the abdominal wall are used to gain access to the organs within the abdomen. This term is used interchangeably with minimally invasive, laparoscopic and keyhole surgery. It is the most important development in field of surgery since inception of surgery. This procedure essentially involves making of a small 5-10 mm incision/cut through which scope is passed to transmit images inside the closed cavity of abdomen with the help of advanced camera onto the screen (TV/ medical monitor). Surgeons can operate looking at the image with help of additional ports / instruments. Other benefits include great visual because of the magnification of structures achieved that are not seen with the naked eye, less bleeding, less pain involved, early discharge from hospitals, and the patients can also resume their work quickly within 3-7 days. Unlike the open traditional surgery, the laparoscopic surgery does not leave disfiguring scars and incisional hernias. In today’s scenario 70-80 % of gastrointestinal surgeries, hernias, gynaecological surgeries, paediatric surgeries, cancer surgeries, obesity surgeries, and thoracic surgeries can be achieved with laparoscopy successfully.
