Department of General and Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery or Keyhole surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery means that traditional large open incisions are replaced with small incisions are made to access the area of the body (mainly abdomen and thorax) requiring treatment so that surgeons, specially trained in laparoscopic techniques can use tiny devices containing cameras to view the area, manipulate the tissue and perform the necessary surgical intervention.

During laparoscopic surgery, few small incisions of size of 5 to 6 mm are made and plastic or metal tubes called Trocar ports are placed through these incisions. The camera, cold light source, and the instruments are then introduced through the ports, which allow access and movement control inside of the patient’s abdominal area.

The camera transmits the live feed of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television moni8kjitor. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes during laparoscopic surgery and the surgeon uses the image from the video camera to perform the procedure.

Using high-definition imaging technology and advanced instrumentations, surgeons at BIMS HOSPITAL perform hundreds of these kinds of procedures each year. This high-volume experience means better outcomes for patients and helps to lead new innovations in the field of laparoscopy surgery and integrate these techniques into patient care.

Compared with traditional “Open” surgery, minimally invasive surgery generally has lots of following benefits and advantages.

  • Better Cosmetics.
  • Less post-operative discomfort.
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Earlier resuming to work and activities
  • Much smaller scars.
  • Dramatically reduced bleeding and postoperative pain
  • Less post-operative adhesions of tissue.

At BIMS hospital, Surgeons in the Department of Minimal Access, Bariatric and Gastrointestinal Surgery, are well trained, board-certified, national and International-affiliated to various organizations like ASI, OSSI, ELSA, IAGES, AMASI, WALS, IEF, and IFSO, and so on.

As part of our approach to patients care, our surgeons will recommend, whenever possible, the least invasive and most effective method to treat conditions, factoring in the patient’s health history, lifestyle, and goals for treatment. Our Department performs a number of different types of minimally invasive procedures related to Gastroenterology, general surgery, Urology, Gynecology, Thoracic cavity.
