Minimal Access Surgery MAS (Laparoscopy, Thoracoscopy)

Paediatric general surgery treatment in Bangalore

Minimal access surgery (MAS) is a type of surgery that uses small incisions to access the surgical site. This type of surgery is also known as laparoscopic surgery or thoracoscopy surgery. MAS is less invasive than traditional surgery, which requires a large incision to access the surgical site. MAS is associated with less pain and scarring and a shorter hospital stay. In addition, MAS is associated with a lower risk of infection and a quicker return to normal activities.

MAS can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including hernias, gallstones, and endometriosis. It can also remove tumours and perform other types of surgery.

Laparoscopy is a type of minimal-access surgery used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. A small incision is made in the abdomen, and a laparoscope (a thin, telescope-like instrument) is inserted. The laparoscope is used to look at the organs and to take pictures or videos.

Laparoscopy is often used to diagnose conditions such as appendicitis, Crohn's disease, and endometriosis. It can also be used to treat conditions such as gallstones and to remove tumours. Visit our paediatric general surgery hospital in Bangalore for the best treatment.

Thoracoscopy is a minimal-access surgery used to examine the organs inside the chest. A small incision is made in the chest, and a thoracoscopy (a thin, telescope-like instrument) is inserted. The thoracoscopy is used to look at the organs and to take pictures or videos.

Thoracoscopy is often used to diagnose conditions such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. It can also treat conditions such as pneumothorax (collapsed lung) and remove tumours.

Laparoscopy

Pre-Procedure

  • Before having a laparoscopy, the patient will likely have a physical exam and blood tests, and you will also need to sign a consent form authorising the surgery.

  • The patient will be asked to fast for 8 hours before the surgery, which means they should not eat or drink anything during this time.

Procedure

  • A laparoscopy is usually done under general anaesthesia, which means the child will be unconscious during the surgery.

  • The surgeon will make a small incision in the child's belly button during the procedure and insert the laparoscope. Carbon dioxide gas is used to inflate the abdomen, which gives the surgeon a better view.

  • The surgeon will look at the abdominal organs and check for any abnormalities. The surgeon can take a biopsy or remove a growth or mass if necessary.

After the Procedure

  • After the laparoscopy, the child will be taken to a recovery room, where they will be monitored for complications.

  • The child may have pain in their abdomen and shoulder from the gas used during the surgery. This pain is usually mild and goes away within a few hours.

  • The child will likely be able to go home on the same day as the surgery.

Thoracoscopy

Pre-procedure

  • A thoracoscopy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient can go home the same day. The procedure is usually done under general anaesthesia, meaning the patient will be unconscious and pain-free during the procedure. Book an appointment to consult with the experts

  • Before the procedure, the patient will be asked to sign a consent form that gives the surgeon permission to perform the surgery. The patient will also be asked to fast for six hours before the surgery.

Procedure

  • A thoracoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used to diagnose and treat chest conditions. The procedure is done by making a small incision in the chest and inserting a thin, lighted tube called a thoracoscope.

  • The thoracoscope is used to look at the lungs, heart, and other structures in the chest. If the surgeon finds a problem, he or she may take a tissue sample (biopsy) for further testing.

After the Procedure

  • After the procedure, the patient will be taken to a recovery room, where they will be monitored for complications. The incisions will be closed with stitches or staples.

  • The patient will be able to go home the same day as the procedure but will need someone to drive them home. The patient should avoid driving or operating heavy machinery for 24 hours after the procedure.

  • The patient will be given instructions on caring for the incisions and when to return for follow-up appointments.
