Laparoscopic and Robotic Gastrointestinal Surgeries


We have the best gastroenterologists in Dwarka, Delhi who are experts in minimally invasive surgeries and robotic surgeries. Both surgeries are minimally invasive, but robotics has additional benefits that make it a better choice in certain cases. In robotic surgery, the surgeon operates through a console and controls the tools used during the surgery. As the tools have a wider range of motions, the surgery is more precise. While laparoscopic surgery also involves the use of tools and assisted cameras, the surgeon operates by his own hands, and the range of movements are limited. Some of the surgeries that are commonly carried out in our hospital using this technology include:
 

  • Gallbladder stones

  • Appendix

  • All types of hernias

  • Achalasia cardia

  • Surgery for rectal prolapse

  • Splenectomy
