Laparoscopic Surgery: Any kind of surgery generally fills a patient’s mind with fear and apprehension. But relax, we are here to take care of it. Laparoscopic surgery is an expertise in dealing with minimal access techniques using cameras and small instruments inserted through 0.3 to 1 cm incisions. Today robotic surgery worldwide is evolving from a similar concept. Hernias and most bariatric surgeries are performed laparoscopically. In our hospital, this department is managed by medical professionals trained at reputed institutes in India and abroad. We have a high caliber staff to carry out these surgeries. They have performed several highly successful and experienced surgeries in the past.Apart from routine open surgeries, they specialize in complex laparoscopic procedure as well.A wide range of modern equipment with State Of The Art coagulation system is made available to the staff. This department works in close co-ordination with endoscopists. Endoscopy of the upper and the lower intestine is an OPD procedure. Endoscopy is a suture less procedure making it less painful and all our endoscopists are trained to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Our team also holds the expertise in colorectal procedures such as MIPH more commonly known as Stapler Haemorrhoidectomy. This is the most modern technique of treating piles and has significant advantage over the routine open procedure. Often the patient is sent home the next day and can resume work in 3-4 days’ time.
