Laparoscopic surgery, also referred to as minimally invasive surgery, is a surgical procedure involving the assistance of a video camera and several slender instruments. During a laparoscopic surgery in Kolkata, small incisions of 5 to 6 mm are made and plastic or metal tubes called ports are placed through these incisions. The camera and the instruments are then introduced through the ports, which allow access to the inside of the patient’s abdominal area.
The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes in laparoscopic surgery in Kolkata, since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure.
Benefits of minimally invasive or laparoscopic procedures are:
- Less post-operative discomfort
- Quicker recovery time
- Shorter hospital stays
- Earlier return to full activities
- Much smaller scars
In short, it is the best and in our opinion, the only way to undergo surgery.
At present, we offer several types of laparoscopic surgeries at the Digestive Surgery Clinic. Although the approach of the procedures are different, the aim is same – facilitating weight loss in a least-invasive manner. Here are some modern approaches that we categorize under laparoscopic surgery.
