Minimal Invasive Surgery Centre
Minimally Invasive Surgeries (also known as minimally invasive procedures) have
been enabled by the advance of various medical technologies. Surgery by definition
is invasive and many operations requiring incisions of some size are referred to
as open surgery. Incisions made can sometimes leave large wounds that are painful
and take a long time to heal. Minimally invasive surgery encompasses surgical techniques
that limit the size of incisions needed and so lessen wound healing time, associated
pain and risk of infection. An endovascular aneurysm repair as an example of minimally
invasive surgery is much less invasive in that it involves much smaller incisions
than the corresponding open surgery procedure of open aortic surgery.
Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgery
Vandana Women’s Hospital utilizes the most current minimally invasive techniques
for a variety of conditions. We aim to provide patients with the least invasive
option with the fastest recovery time and best cosmetic outcomes.
In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single long abdominal incision
measuring several inches to enter into the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses several
0.5-1cm incisions. This system allows the surgeon to perform the same operations
as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions. However recently single incision
laparoscopic surgery is also evolved.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
» Less post-operative pain
» Faster recovery
» Short hospital stay
» Less post-operative complications like
wound infection, adhesion, hernia, etc.
» No Scars
» Early return to work and normal activities
» Cost-effective in working group
Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery
Well trained laproscopic gynaecologists with years of experience in India and abroad
can individually tailor almost all gynaecological operations to your needs using
this modern modality of surgery:
» Laparoscopic tuboplasties and reversal
» Laparoscopic treatment of infertility.
» Ovarian drilling.
» Laparoscopic correction of uterine malformations.
Laparoscopic correction of certain types of prolapsed. This key hole method of advance
surgery result in better healing, minimal pain, faster recovery and early return
to daily activities.
Day Care Hysterectomy
Laparoscopic hysterectomy is an alternative to abdominal hysterectomy. Most hysterectomies
by laparotomy can be avoided by using the laparoscopic approach including cases
of adhesions, adnexal masses and endometriosis. These are many advantages from laparoscopic
hysterectomy for the patient including the length of hospital stay and convalescence.
Patient is discharged on the same day.
The main indication is abnormal uterine bleeding which we define as bleeding for
over 7 days with clots and the need to wear additional protection for more than
2 cycles. Abnormal uterine bleeding includes all the usual causes such as
» Patients suffering from bleeding diastesis
Laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure
Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a relatively new surgical procedure that allows the
uterus to be removed from inside the body by laparoscopic instruments while the
doctor is viewing the uterus, tubes and ovaries through a camera attached to a telescope.
After the uterus is detached, it is removed through a small incision at the top
of the vagina. One advantage of laparoscopic hysterectomy is that the incisions
are smaller (1/2 inch) and much less comfortable than that of abdominal hysterectomy.
Also, the hospital stay of 1 day and the ability to resume normal activity in about
2 weeks are substantially shorter than for abdominal hysterectomy and slightly shorter
than for vaginal hysterectomy.
