Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive, key-hole diagnostic procedure that allows a surgeon to inspect the organs inside your body - without conducting an open surgery. A thin, long tube equipped with a tiny light and a high-definition camera at the tip is introduced into the body via a small incision or a port to capture images of the abdominal cavity. The capture images are transmitted to high-resolution monitors in the operating room - that allows the surgeon to perform the same operation as traditional open surgery but with smaller incisions.

Your appendix is a narrow tubular finger-shaped organ attached to the intestines on the lower right side of your abdomen. It houses bacteria. When the appendix is blocked, it becomes inflamed and results in appendicitis. A ruptured appendix can allow the bacteria to spread to the other organs posing a risk to life. Laparoscopy is the best diagnostic…Read More
Your gallbladder will need to be removed if the gallstones in it cause complications. The presence of gallstones is called cholelithiasis. Doctors may also recommend this type of surgery if you have - biliary dyskinesia, which occurs when the gallbladder doesn’t empty bile correctly due to a defect; pancreatitis or the inflammation of the pancreas…Read More

Laparoscopic/Robotic onco-resection includes cancers of the adrenal, colorectal, oesophagus, gynaecology, kidney, small intestine.
Tumours of the adrenal gland that are smaller can be successfully treated using laparoscopic and robotic adrenalectomy procedures.
Colorectal cancer, also known as bowel/colon / rectal cancer, most commonly affects the colon and the rectum. In the earliest stages of colorectal cancer, the cancerous polyps can be removed through laparoscopic-assisted surgery. If it has spread to the walls of the colon, the affected portion of the colon, rectum and surrounding lymph nodes are removed.
Oesophageal (food pipe) cancer can be treated through laparoscopic oesophagectomy procedure that involves either removing only the affected portion of the oesophagus (oesophagectomy) or the entire oesophagus (total oesophagectomy). Sometimes a portion of your stomach is also removed (oesophago-gastrectomy)
Women suffering from allied early-stage, small-sized gynaecological cancers including cancers of the cervix (the neck of the womb), uterus, ovaries, vagina, or the vulva can be treated through a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
The minimally invasive laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is a procedure recommended to remove small-sized kidney tumours.
A keyhole or a laparoscopic surgery is used to treat tumours of the small intestine. The procedure involves tiny incisions made on the lower abdomen while the affected intestine is removed or resectioned. The cut ends of the intestine are then joined back together.
Laparoscopic stapled gastrojejunostomy for palliation or relieve of the symptoms in gastric or pancreatic cancer.
Bowel Resection: Subtotal or segmental colectomy to treat and prevent cancer.
Robotic Surgery: Allows access to hard-to-reach areas of the colon, rectum gynaecologic cancers, etc.
Robotic surgery has made the removal of colorectal tumours in the constricted space of the pelvis much gentler due to greater precision and magnified three-dimensional view of the operating area.
Robotic surgery is successfully carried out by surgeons in women suffering from endometriosis cancer, fibroids, or those requiring the removal of uterus and ovaries.
Pneumonectomy: Removal of a lung and sometimes parts of the diaphragm, pericardium and the pleura to treat lung cancer and conditions of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and tuberculosis.

Gastrointestinal laparoscopic procedures are an advanced surgical technique which includes tiny incisions (3-5 mm in size) in the abdomen or a single incision in the navel (single incision laparoscopic surgery) — that allows the surgeon to treat issues related to the GI tract with the help of a laparoscope. Laparoscopic Surgeon in Delhi routinely conduct:
Exploration of bile duct for stone disease
Colorectal resections for cancer: Early-stage colon cancers are often treated through surgery. Laparoscopic-assisted colectomy is performed to remove the affected portion of the colon and lymph nodes.
Cystic diseases of the liver

Myotomy is a surgical procedure which involves the splitting of the muscles of the oesophagus to loosen the oesophageal sphincter to allow easy passage of the food into the stomach.
Lap bariatric surgery
Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgeries: While laparoscopic surgery is performed by a surgeon using a laparoscope, robotic surgery is performed using a computer console. Robotic surgery includes a camera arm and another arm (mechanical arm) to which surgical instruments are attached. Robot-assisted surgeries provide a 3D HD view with enhanced vision, control, and precision. Since the incisions are tiny, chances of infection are minimal, resulting in a faster recovery rate. Some general surgeries that are commonly carried out via laparoscopic or robotic include:
Gall bladder stones
Gastrointestinal cancers (Oesophageal, gastric, colorectal, pancreatic, etc.)
Hiatus hernia: A hiatus hernia is a condition when your stomach bulges up through an opening in your diaphragm (hiatus).
Simple to complex hernias: A simple or basic hernia is the bulging of an organ through an abdominal opening. A basic hernia can turn into a complex hernia when the repeated surgical attempts to close the abdominal opening fail.
Trauma and emergency surgery
Laparoscopy is usually done as an outpatient procedure. This means that you'll be able to go home the same day as your surgery. It may be performed in a hospital or an outpatient surgical center. You'll likely be given general anesthesia for this type of surgery

Less post-operative pain
Less blood loss
Lower risk of infections
Shorter hospital stay
Obese patients have lost weight significantly through bariatric surgery. According to a study, bariatric surgery helps patient lose about 30-50% of their excess weight in the first 6 months, and 77% in 12 months after surgery.
Yes. Laparoscopic surgeries are as safe as traditional open surgeries in children — with the advantage of tiny incisions and scars, minimal pain and speedy recovery.
