Advanced General & Minimal Access Surgeries

The Department of Advanced General and Minimal access surgery at NMC hospitals provides comprehensive surgical procedures using minimal access techniques with fewer post-surgical complications and faster patient recovery.

What is minimal access surgery?

Minimal access surgery is performed with one or more small incisions instead of a large incision. The surgeon passes a telescope with video camera through a small incision (usually only 1/4" long) into a body cavity. The surgeon then views the surgery on a TV monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through other similar little incisions. The surgeon examines and operates by viewing magnified images on a television.

When the telescope is used to operate on the abdomen, the procedure is called laparoscopy. When used in the chest, the procedure is called thoracoscopy, and when used in a joint, it is called arthroscopy.

What type of surgery can be done laparoscopically?

Most of the abdominal surgical procedures can be done laparoscopically. A patient should discuss this with a surgeon to make a final decision about the laparoscopic possibilities

Benefits of minimal access surgery

There are many advantages to the patients undergoing Minimal access or keyhole surgery when compared with an open surgery.

  • Reduced blood loss – reduces the chance of needing a blood transfusion
  • Smaller incision – reduces pain and shortens recovery time
  • Less pain – less medication
  • Reduced infections – due to reduced exposure of internal organs to the possible external contaminants, risk of accruing infections is reduced.
  • Relatively small scar – since the keyhole surgery involves a small opening it leaves relatively very small scar in the body.
  • Quick recovery
  • Quick ambulation
  • Quicker resumption of diet
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less impairment of pulmonary function
  • Less suppression of the immune system

Surgical gastroenterology

What is Gastroenterology?

The speciality of gastroenterology involves the diagnosis and management of patients with diseases of the intestines, liver and biliary tree, and pancreas. The specialty is broadly divided into two aspects: medical and surgical, with a close working relationship maintained between the two. Medical gastroenterology largely involves the diagnosis and management of patients using medicine and minimally invasive interventions, i.e. endoscopy.

Surgical gastroenterology is split into three specialties: the upper gastrointestinal tract, the lower GI tract and the liver, bile ducts and pancreas.

What is endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic tool, used to view the inside of organs, inspect for abnormalities and take biopsies. A small camera and light source are mounted onto a flexible tube which can be inserted into the mouth (to inspect the esophagus, stomach and duodenum) or the anus (to inspect the large bowel).

Endoscopy ranges from diagnostic to complex therapeutic endoscopy that is best regarded as a form of minimally invasive surgery, e.g. stopping bleeding from ulcers, removing gallstones. Many procedures in endoscopy have replaced traditional surgery as the safest way to manage the elderly population.
