Minimal Access Surgery (Key Hole Surgery)

Famously called as Key-Hole surgery, 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.

It is the absence of long incisions on the body that makes the surgery almost painless and results in no scarring while achieving the same results as open surgery. The advantage if being able to reduce the hospital stay drastically combined with early return to work makes it an extremely patient friendly and cost effective technique, thus making it the more popular choice among patients.

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.
