Overview

All scopes are available for any form of surgery. High end procedures are performed with the help of the Harmonic scalpel and also procedures with the Argon Plasma Coagulator. For liver surgery the cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (USA) is used.

Bariatric Surgery is a key focus area and the procedures are performed in line with International Guidelines.

All forms of rigid and flexible scopes are available at the hospital.


Acute small bowel obstruction (ASBO) is one of the commonest surgical emergencies encountered in the emergency rooms of hospitals around the world. Traditionally open surgery ie. Laparotomy has been the standard way to therapy. However, the minimal access surgical revolution has made a dent in this too. A good number of carefully selected ASBO patients can now be managed by laparoscopic surgery. Our experience in laparoscopic surgical therapy for ASBO was recently published in a PubMed indexed International journal, as an Original paper.

FAQ's

A general anesthetic is required for almost all cases of elective laparoscopic surgery. That means that the patient is completely asleep and will not remember anything about the surgical procedure.

Most of the abdominal surgical procedures can be done laparoscopically. In some cases there are other factors that might make it impossible to do the surgery laparoscopically. A patient should discuss this with a surgeon to make a final decision about the laparoscopic possibilities. For many diseases in the abdomen requiring surgery, a high percentage of cases can be done laparoscopically.

The most important reason to most patients is the quicker recovery. In many cases of abdominal surgery, the recovery is reduced by half the time or more. For some types of surgery the incidence of complications, such as infection in the incision, is reduced with laparoscopic surgery.

The length of time to recover enough to return to work varies by the type of procedure and sometimes from individual to individual. However, for many surgical procedures such as gallbladder surgery and hernia surgery, most patients can return to work in about one week. For other types of surgery such as fundoplication, splenectomy, and adrenalectomy, most patients can return to work in about 2 weeks. For gastric bypass and colon surgery, most patients can return to work within a 3 week period.
