The field of Minimal Access Surgery or Laparoscopic Surgery has revolutionized surgical management is part of the spectrum of services. Our experienced team of surgeons specialize in performing high end procedures based on international standards.
These procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. Because the incisions are small, patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort than with conventional surgery — all with the same benefits.
Laparoscopic surgery is often referred to as minimally invasive surgery
Laparoscopy utilizes small (1/2 inch or smaller) incisions instead of the large incision used in traditional open surgical procedures. Through the small incisions trocars (pen shaped tubes with a valve) are inserted into the abdominal cavity, which is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to create space between the internal organs and allow visualization and organ manipulation. One of the trocars is used to allow access for the video camera, which also has a built-in light source.
What is the hallmark of this procedure?
Today, most modern laparoscopic systems provide high definition image quality and the surgeon and the team view the procedure on a separate video monitor. These systems provide outstanding visualization and access to anatomical structures that are otherwise only accessible via large incisions that may extend to the back or the chest.
