Minimal Access Surgery

In Minimal Access/Laparoscopic Surgery, the surgeons perform keyhole-sized incision and operate on internal organs leaving just a tiny scar, unlike that from large cuts. The specialist puts in a telescope with a camera through this incision into the body cavity and operates by looking at the video on a monitor. Minimal Access Surgery ensures quick recovery of patients and they can recommence their daily activities as it causes negligible pain. The combination of simple and complicated surgeries is perfect for improving the patients’ health.
