Minimally Invasive SurgeryA new era of modern surgery started with the creation of video surgery when surgeons can approach almost every part of the human body with cameras and video monitors. This is a truly revolutionary development in medicine.
During minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedure surgeons make a small cut in the skin and then introduce a harmless gas, such as carbon dioxide, into the body cavity to expand it and create a large working space. Through additional small cuts, a rod shaped telescope, attached to a camera, and other long and narrow surgical instruments are placed into the newly formed space. By this means, under high magnification diseased organs are able to be examined with minimal trauma to the patient. Instead of making a large cut into the skin and underlying muscles, surgeons are now able to make small entry ports into the area of interest and perform all the major maneuvers previously done when a large opening was present.
Instead of weeks and months of bed rest and limited activities, which was associated with the old methods of the operations, patients can now usually resume their normal activities in just a few days after the procedures.
Advantages of laparoscopic operations include, but not limited to reduced postoperative pain, early return to normal activities, reduced infection rate and other potential complications, such as incisional hernias, etc.
In our centre we perform different minimally invasive operations including the most advanced laparoscopic surgical procedures.
