Minimally Invasive Surgery is also known as laparoscopic surgery or “keyhole” surgery. These are minimally invasive procedures aimed to reach internal organs through very small incisions with the help of dedicated camera and equipment. For the Minimally invasive procedures, the surgeon inserts a thin, flexible tube with a video camera through a small incision or a natural orifice like the mouth or anal cavity. The tube has a channel to utilise surgical instruments, which the surgeon uses while viewing the organs on a computer monitor while performing surgical procedures.
This technique allows the surgeon to see inside the patient’s body and operate through a much smaller incision than what would otherwise be required for traditional open surgery.
The Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgical Procedures Can Include:
- Small incisions or few incisions
- Less pain
- Low risk of infection
- Short hospital stay
- Quick recovery time
- Less scarring
- Reduced blood loss
Most of the GI surgeries will be managed laparoscopically at BIG
