Dr.Punyavathi C. Nagaraj, Consultant Laparoscopic Gynaecologist in our institute, and also has keen interests in laparoscopic radical hysterectomy, laparoscopic sling surgeries, and laparoscopic myomectomy.
The surgeons and staff at the General & Laparoscopic Surgical Center of Punya Hospital, Bangalore are committed to provide the best surgical care using their skills combined with the latest techniques and technologies in minimally invasive - as well as traditional - surgery.
As Surgical Associates of Punya Hospital, Karnataka our surgeons and Laparoscopic Gynaecologist are highly trained in the safe, effective use of the laparoscopic technique.
During a laparoscopic procedure, several small incisions are made in the area to be treated. Carbon dioxide gas is passed into the abdominal cavity in order to move the abdominal wall away from the organs and therefore create a larger area in which to work.
Through one of the incisions, the surgeon then inserts a laparoscope. This is a tiny camera that projects the images it records onto a large monitor, allowing the surgeon to see inside of the body without having to make a long incision. The advantages of laparoscopy surgery are numerous and include the following:
Laparoscopic And Endoscopic Gynec And Infertility Procedures
Gynecology is that branch of medical science which specializes in the health of women in relation to her genital system. Women’s genital system is comprised of reproductive organs which includes the uterus where the fetus grows, the cervix which is the opening of the uterus to the vagina, the ovaries which produce the sex hormones and eggs, the fallopian tubes which carry the egg from ovaries to the uterus and the vagina which is a muscular tract from the cervix to the outside of the body.
Lining inside the uterus is medically referred as endometrium. Endometrium thickens during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. If conception occurs endometrium under goes decidualization. The fetus derives nutrients and oxygen form the endometrium. If conception does not occur endometrium breaks down and is passed out through menstruation.
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
Total laparoscopic hysterectomy is the surgical procedure used to remove a woman’s uterus. Conditions like fibroids in uterus, cancer of uterus, ovaries, cervix, uterine prolapsed, and endometriosis, pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding etc are some of the causes which necessitate the removal of uterus.
Lap Radical Hysterectomy
Endometrial cancer is the abnormal growth of cells in the lining of the uterus. Removal of uterus as a result of cancer is medically referred as hysterectomy. When the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and cervix are removed, it is known as total hysterectomy. When only the uterus and two third portion of the vagina are removed in a surgical procedure, that procedure is known as radical hysterectomy.
Laparoscopic Surgeries On Ovaries
A pair of ovaries located on both sides of uterus are most important organs of the human body which produces eggs for the reproduction purpose. But the ovaries can be dysfunctional due to the existence of cysts, polyps, tumors etc. There a lot of treatment options for the successful management of this disorders. Even though medications have been found to be very affective in controlling and relieving the symptoms, the eradication of the disease or disorder is usually accomplished by surgical removal of the affected ovary or ovaries and the adjacent structures like fallopian tubes uterus etc.
Ovarian Cyst Removal
Fluid filled sacs inside or on the ovaries are known as ovarian cysts. Women have a pair ovaries located on both sides of the uterus. Ovaries, which have the size and shape of almonds, produce eggs and are released during the menstrual cycle. Women are likely to have some ovarian cysts during their life.
Submucosal Fibroid Removal
Non cancerous growths in the uterus that develop on the muscular tissues are known as fibroids. Fibroid growing on the outer surface of the uterus is refereed by the medical term submucosal fibroids. The sub mucosal fibroids usually develop a under the lining of the uterus. Though they are not very common, they are considered to be the most dangerous type of fibroids as they cause heavy bleeding.
Endometrial ablation is the process used to destroy the endometrium or the lining of the uterus. This procedure is generally used for treating the abnormal uterine bleeding. This procedure is done using a hysteroscope which is an instrument with a light and a camera so that the inner part of the uterus can be viewed by the surgeon with the help of the hysteroscope.
Scar tissue formed consequent to surgeries or that are formed between organs are known as adhesions. About 90 % of patients who undergo abdominal surgeries have been reported to develop adhesions. They are normally asymptotic and do not pose any threat to the life of the patients concerned. There are possibilities that adhesions may cause severe bowel problems.
