Laparoscopic Surgery


        Advanced Laparoscopic unit dealing with the management of Appendicitis, Cholelithiasis, Hernia, Diagnostic laparoscopy etc. with Minimal Access Surgery (keyhole surgery) and advanced techniques.

         Laparoscopic surgery, also referred to minimally invasive surgery (MIS), involves the use of a thin, tubular device called a Laparoscope which is inserted through a keyhole incision into the abdomen or pelvis to perform operations that used to require large incisions.

Types of Laparoscopic surgery:
Lap Appendectomy

Appendectomy may be performed laparoscopically as an open operation. Laparoscopy is often used if the diagnosis is in doubt, or in order to leave a less visible surgical scar. Recovery may be slightly faster after laparoscopic surgery, although the laparoscopic procedure itself is more expensive and resource-intensive than open surgery and generally takes longer.

Lap Hernia Repair

Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia—a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy; or hernioplasty.This operation may be performed to correct hernias of the abdomen, groin, diaphragm, brain, or at the site of a previous operation. Hernia repair is often performed as an ambulatory procedure.

Diagnostic Laparoscopy

Diagnostic laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that doctors use to view a woman's reproductive organs. A laparoscope, a thin viewing tube similar to a telescope, is passed through a small incision (cut) in the abdomen.

Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder. It is a common treatment of symptomatic gallstones and other gallbladder conditions.It can be performed either laparoscopically, using a video camera, or via an open surgical technique. The surgery is usually successful in relieving symptoms, but up to 10% of people may continue to experience similar symptoms after cholecystectomy, a condition called postcholecystectomy syndrome.
