Our Uniqueness

Minimal Access Cancer Surgery

In Minimal Access Surgery, rather than making big incisions and entering the patient’s body cavity, a surgeon makes small holes of 0.5 to 1 cm in the patient’s abdomen or thorax, and then introduces a miniature telescope which shows magnified vision and further uses a stick-like instrument to perform the task. This procedure is known as a laparoscopy or a thoracoscopy. Depending on the organs that are being removed, the surgery is called thoracoscopic esophagectomy, laparoscopic colectomy and so on.
The benefits of this minimally invasive approach are both short term and long term. Immediate benefits are less postoperative pain, less requirement of analgesics, early ambulation of the patient, early bowel function, less risk of infection, and quicker recovery time. Long-term benefits include a lower risk of an incision hernia and no restriction in your day to day activities.
