GENERAL SURGERY- Laparoscopic, Colo-Rectal & Bariatric

Laparoscopy has allowed surgeons to perform the same procedures as in traditional open surgery, using small incisions (keyhole surgery) instead of large incisions. Major benefits of these surgeries are no large scars, reduced postoperative pain, reduced hospital stay, quicker return to normal physical activities and early return to work. Apart from establishing all laparoscopic procedures as routine the Institute due to its leadership in innovation of laparoscopic surgery, it is the only Institute to conduct even breast surgery laparoscopically. The Institute has been internationally recognized as a pioneer in enhancing the safety of laparoscopic surgeries due to innovations developed here.

The highlights of colo-rectal surgeries are developing newer investigations and therapeutic techniques in the surgeries for piles, fissures, fistulas and carcinoma rectum. Advancing the imaging techniques of defecography and the anal physiology studies involving manometry have resulted in the performance of advanced anal surgeries of Stapled Anopexy and STARR which was done in Asia for the first time in this Institute.

Obesity is a multifactorial disease due to accumulation of excess fat in the body. It refers to a spectrum of problems of excess weight, ranging from mild overweight to severe obesity. Obese people are more likely to develop reflux disorders and heartburn, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, some cancers including prostate, breast, cervix and ovarian cancer, snoring and suffer sleep disorders, fatty liver disease , menstrual irregularities and infertility, depression and adjustment problems in society. With the epidemic of obesity no longer confined to the west, the demand for bariatric surgery has been on the increase. The focus is on Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery become particularly important as far as bariatric surgery is concerned. Weight loss surgery is almost guaranteed to help you lose weight, but like all good tools, it works best in the hands of a worker who is well trained.
