Minimally Invasive Surgery
Our surgical department is led by recognized minimally invasive surgeons who have expertise in performing procedures through tiny insertions rather than long cuts. With the advancement of technology, many procedures which were earlier performed via open surgeries are done with minimally invasive surgeries. There are numerous benefits of minimally invasive surgeries like less pain, small scars, shorter hospital stay, fewer chances of bleeding and infections and quick recovery. Variety of terms used to describe minimally invasive surgeries, such as keyhole, laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
These surgeries are performed using special equipment to minimize the damage. A minimally invasive surgeon will make numerous small incisions and inserts thin tubes called as trocars. A laparoscope is then placed through one of the thin tubes so that surgeon can view the image on the video monitors, then through another trocar instrument is placed to remove or repair the diseased organ.
Minimally invasive surgery allows your surgeon to use techniques that limit the size and number of cuts, or incisions, that they need to make. It’s typically considered safer than open surgery. You’ll usually recover more quickly, spend less time in the hospital, and feel more comfortable while you heal.
In traditional open surgery, your surgeon makes one large cut to see the part of your body that they’re operating on. In minimally invasive surgery, your surgeon uses small tools, cameras, and lights that fit through several tiny cuts in your skin. This allows your surgeon to perform surgery without opening a lot of skin and muscle.
Some minimally invasive surgeries are done with robotic technology that allows more precise control over the surgery. Other minimally invasive surgeries are done without robotic assistance.
