Minimally Access Surgery
Minimally access surgery, famously called as Key-Hole surgery, is the new age technique used for treatment of gall bladder stone, kidey stone….etc. The operation is done through small holes in your body. A telescope is inserted through the body which acts as the eye of the surgeon. He operates looking at the image in the monitor using thin long instruments through other small holes placed in the body.
This technique is applicable to all fields that deal with organs inside the abdomen, the most popular among them being gall bladder surgery (cholecystectomy). The other fields that are largely benefited are gastroenterology (hepato-biliary, pancreas, stomach, colon), oncosurgery (surgery for cancer), trauma and emergency surgery, endoscopic surgeries (MIPH for hemorrhoids, SEPS for varicose veins, VATS for chest surgeries etc.). Four major specialities that benefit in a major way by this state-of-the-art techniques are Surgical Gastroenterology, Gynaecology, Urology and Pediatric Surgery.
