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 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, our surgeons 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:
- Less Post-Operative Discomfort.
- Faster Recovery.
- Smaller, more discrete Scars.
- Reduced Risk of Complications.
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
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.
