Laparoscopy is a surgical technique in which surgery is carried out through small incisions of the size about a few centimeters. In this surgery an instrument called laparoscope, which is a camera and a light source connected to one end of a small tube, is inserted through a cannula inserted through one on these small incisions. The other end of this long tube is connected to a video camera placed in front of the surgeon in the theatre. The videos taken by the camera is enlarged and displayed in the monitor. The surgeon visualises the surgery through this monitor and conducts the surgery remotely controlling the special instruments inserted throug other small incisions.
Diagnostic laparoscopy is a medical procedure carried out to look directly at the organs of a patient’s abdominal area or pelvic region. This procedure is usually carried out to identify the reasons of pain felt by the patient or to identify tumors or cancerous growth in the abdominal area and the pelvic region. When the results of X-rays or various imaging techniques are not conclusive then only usually diagnostic laparoscopy is performed.
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.
