Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) refers to the use of techniques that permit access to internal organs without a large incision. It’s a specialized form of surgery that allows surgeons to operate by making a keyhole-sized incision and performing surgeries on internal organs leaving a small scar as against the conventional/open surgeries where surgeons performed large incisions. Our department offers a full spectrum of specialised surgeries – general and minimal access, bariatric surgery and gastrointestinal surgery. As MAS is carried out with the help of tiny incisions, patients have less postoperative pain, spend shorter time in the hospital and recover significantly faster than after open surgery. The department is equipped with top class equipments to perform simple and complex surgeries ideal for improving your health at every stage When MAS is used for dealing with abdominal diseases it is called Laparoscopic surgery.
The section of Minimal Access Surgery has the best equipment and offers services for performing common as well as more complex operations. We have a purpose built laparoscopic operation theatre with ergonomically designed ceiling mounted twin HD screens. Several of the abdominal operations that are traditionally performed by open surgery can now be undertaken using minimal access surgical technique with obvious benefits to the patients. Today, it is virtually possible for most surgeries to be conducted laproscopically, thus helping patients to cut down the post-operative pain and stay in hospital, thus helping faster recovery. This advent of laproscopic and minimal access surgery has alleviated post operative care to a different level, thereby conceptualizing the trend of “Day care surgery”.
The Minimal access surgery have been standardized, over a period of time with respect to surgical and anaesthesia techniques, to minimize the complications giving excellent outcomes.
