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.
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.
» 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
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 of sterilization.
» 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.
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

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.
