Laparoscopic Surgeries is also known as key -hole surgeries or “minimally invasive” surgery or minimal access (MAS). It is a specialized technique for performing surgery in which several tiny incisions are made instead of one incision to enter the abdomen. Compared to traditional open surgery, patients often experience less pain, a shorter recovery, and less scarring with laparoscopic surgery. Today, expert General Surgeons can perform almost 70% of abdominal operations using MAS. This technique is also widely used in Gynecology and Urology apart from Gastroenterology.
Our Surgeons performs consultation and surgery on medical conditions involving the breast, endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, colon, liver, pancreas and rectum. The department provides modern, comprehensive surgical care for both routine and critically ill patients.
