Laparoscopic Surgery

General and Laparoscopic Surgery

Synopsis

Conceptually, the laparoscopic surgery approach is intended to minimize post-operative pain and speed up recovery time, while maintaining an enhanced visual field for surgeons. Due to improved patient outcomes, in the last two decades, this field of surgery has been adopted by various surgical subspecialties, including gastrointestinal surgery (and bariatric procedures for morbid obesity), gynecologic surgery, and urology. Based on numerous prospective randomized controlled trials, the approach has proven to be beneficial in reducing post-operative morbidities such as wound infections and incisional hernias (especially in morbidly obese patients), and is now deemed safe when applied to surgery for cancers such as cancer of the colon.

Department:

Over the last two decades, the demand and utility for this department has grown manifold. Laparoscopy not only unveils new possibilities in healthcare, especially in the surgical sector, but also brings in a host of advantages over open procedures, such as:

  • Curbs the need for blood transfusion as minimally invasive surgery reduces the risk of Hemorrhaging.
  • Smaller incisions reduce post-operative pain, accelerates recovery and also reduces scarring.
  • Even though the procedure is slightly complex, the hospital admission duration reduces; and in most cases, same day discharge is also possible.
  • Reduced threat of infections as internal organs get less exposed to contaminants.
  • The way forward in gastrointestinal emergencies, as the field in itself is ever evolving.

This type of surgery for adults is widely accepted, however, its direct advantages on pediatric health is debatable. The only fields where its efficiency is questioned very often in comparison to open procedures are:

  • Pyloromyotomy
  • Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
  • Intra-abdominal abscesses

Services:

General Surgeons perform consultation and surgery for medical conditions involving the endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, breasts, colon, and rectum. The best General Surgeons at Aster Hospitals work closely with other specialists involved in each patient’s care to diagnose and provide timely surgical intervention for complex conditions. Furthermore, the Specialist Surgeons at Aster Hospitals are also well equipped to conduct simple and complex surgeries.

This type of surgery, also called keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed by making a small incision (usually 0.5 cm – 1.5 cm) in the body. The procedure utilizes an instrument called a laparoscope, which is a thin, long tube with a high-intensity light and a high resolution camera at the front. As it moves along, the camera sends the video to a monitor, looking at which the specialist surgeon/s carry out the procedure. The unit provides advanced surgery to treat diseases such as gallstones, hernia (inguinal, umbilical, ventral), and appendicitis, intestinal and colorectal tumors. It is a minimally-invasive procedure with early mobilization, lesser recovery time allowing you to return to your daily life faster.
