FAQ's

What is Minimal Access Surgery or Laparoscopy?

The philosophy of Minimal Access Surgery is to do equivalent operation or procedure as in conventional or open operation wherein the access (incision) for that operation is minimal.

Laparoscopy is a combination of Greek words; Laparos is Abdomen and Scopein is to see inside. So Laparoscopy means to see inside the abdomen using sophisticated equipments like telescopes, endovision camera, etc.

Can you explain to our viewers in short how it is done?

In a conventional or open operation the surgeon cuts open the area of body where there is a problem and if the problem were extensive the cut on the tummy would also extend. Infact earlier the saying was

” THE BIGGER THE SURGEON, the LARGER WAS THE INCISION”.

In laparoscopy a small cut of sizes 1.7mm/5mm/10mm (Depending on the size of telescope to be used) is taken through navel; and abdomen is entered either under direct vision or with a needle. Normally the tummy is flat and there is no real space inside to work hence to create space for working; CO2 gas is insufflated thro a sophisticated machine at a preset pressure. Then a telescope of is introduced into the abdomen through the navel. The telescope is connected to Endocamera, the other end of which is connected to Monitor or a TV.A powerful light source is connected to the telescope so that there is light inside for us to see.

For diagnostic laparoscopy this much is sufficient. Infact for diagnosing abdominal problems in critical patients; in ICU, needloscopy (the size of telescope 1.7mm) is used, that too under Local Anaesthesia; as General Anaesthesia can be dangerous for these critically ill patients. In case some operation is required then 5mm or 10 mm telescope is required. Additional cuts of 5mm or 10mm are taken on abdomen to introduce additional instruments and operation is performed by the team looking at the Monitor, as the camera is the eye of the team, much like a video game if I may say so in common mans language. So now the saying is

“THE BIGGER THE SURGEON, smaller THE INCISION”.
