SRV Group of Hospitals is well known for performing successful laparoscopic surgeries. It is also known as minimally invasive surgery because instead of a large incision in traditional open surgeries, laparoscopic surgery utilizes a very small incision (half inch or less) for the procedure. Through these incisions, trocars (pen-shaped tubes with a valve) are inserted into the abdominal cavity. The abdominal cavity is inflated by filling in CO2 for better organ visualization and manipulation. The laparoscope (a long, thin tube with high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front) is inserted through the incision to send real time high definition images to a video monitor. After procedure, the instruments are removed and the incisions are covered with stitches and bandages.
Laparoscopic surgery requires a different skill set and training than traditional surgical procedures. Today, advanced laparoscopic surgeries have become the gold standard in gallbladder surgery, splenectomy, adrenalectomy, anti-reflux operations and weight loss surgery. Compared to traditional surgery, there is substantial improvement in post operative pain and reduced recovery time in laparoscopic surgery. Usually the patient can return to all normal activities within a week.
At SRV group of Hospitals, these advanced laparoscopic surgeries are performed by nationally and internationally recognised, experienced surgeons, who have additional training beyond their basic general surgical education.
