General and Laparoscopic Surgery

Best Laparoscopic Surgery in Kochi

Laparoscopic or Minimally invasive surgery uses tiny cuts or incisions in the skin — or no cuts at all — rather than the large cuts often needed in traditional surgery. MIS includes both laparoscopy (surgery through small holes) and endoscopy (diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed through the body’s organs and existing openings).

There are many kinds of minimally invasive surgeries; each involves the surgeon using an endoscope or laparoscope. This is a thin tube with a light and tiny video camera at the end. The endoscope lets the surgeon see inside the body. The Surgeon inserts specially designed, thin instruments and sophisticated coagulation device to perform the operation

through the smaller opening. It’s safer than open surgery. You’ll recover more quickly, spend less time in the hospital, and feel more comfortable.

In traditional surgeries, a surgeon needs to make a large incision in order to operate, mainly to use many assistants hands to be inside the wound. To have a reasonable vision for the team, the cut has to be really big. Minimally invasive techniques only require two to three small incisions — usually 5 mm/10 mm and these port sites are the key to MIS. The high definition camera and lighting provide a clear vision for precise surgery.

There are many methods of minimally invasive surgery that have become the standard of care for a wide range of medical conditions, ranging from common medical issues to complex surgeries.
