Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a high-energy light that is used to safely cut or burn the affected tissue during surgical procedures. The laser techniques are advanced and safer than before; they are scar-free, bloodless and less painful with fewer complications.
- No cuts & No stitches
- Does not occur again
- 30-40 Min Procedure
A laparoscope is a special telescope designed for medical use. It is connected to a high intensity (fiber-optic) light source as well as a high-resolution television camera. This allows the surgeon to view the abdominal cavity. The laparoscope is placed into the abdominal cavity through a hollow tube (trocar) and the image is viewed on a TV monitor.
There are many advantages over traditional open surgery. People who undergo laparoscopic procedures often have a shorter hospitalization. On average 1 to 2 days for laparoscopic versus 5 to 7 days for open surgery. Also, since laparoscopy utilizes much smaller incisions, the risk of wound infection is less and consequently the risk of hernia formation is less. While postoperative pain is different for everybody, patients often report much less pain after laparoscopy.
The most frequent complications of any operation are bleeding and infection. There is a small risk of other complications that include, but are not limited to, injury to the abdominal organs, intestines, urinary bladder or blood vessels. As with any laparoscopic procedure, there is a chance of “conversion” to the open procedure. Most often this occurs to people that have had many previous abdominal surgeries and have a lot of scar tissue. In the hands of experienced laparoscopic surgeons conversion to open is very rare.
Surgery of the digestive system, especially diseases of the abdominal organs. Eg: Stomach (small intestine) /Colon (large end), Gallbladder/Appendix/Spleen.
Also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS) or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed far from their location through small incisions.Read More
