  • Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

     The Da Vinci surgical system is a kind of robotic surgical system which is designed to facilitate complex surgeries, wherein a surgeon controls it using a console. It is called the “Da Vinci” surgery because Leonardo Da Vinci’s human anatomy study led to the designing of the first robot in the history of mankind.

  • 3D Laparoscopy

    3D laparoscopic surgery removes tumors through a procedure in which a camera is inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall. As it moves, the image of the abdominal organs is sent from the camera to the monitor. The 3D high definition view facilitates the surgeon’s work by improving surgical precision and hand- eye coordination which makes the surgery safer. It enables faster recovery with shorter hospitalization period, decreased blood loss and less post-operative pain.

  • Laparoscopic Surgery

    It is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure as only small incisions are made. It uses an instrument called a laparoscope, which is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front, to look at the abdominal organs. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor. Laparoscopy is often used to identify and diagnose the source of abdominal or pelvic pain. It is usually performed when other, noninvasive methods are unable to help with diagnosis.

  • HIPEC (Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy)

    HIPEC is the procedure in which warmed anti-cancer drugs are infused and circulated in the peritoneal cavity (abdomen) for a short period of time. It delivers chemotherapy directly to cancer cells in the abdomen, so allows for higher doses of chemotherapy treatment. Heating the solution may also improve the absorption of chemotherapy drugs by tumors and destroy microscopic cancer cells that remain in the abdomen after surgery.

  • Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

    It is a procedure in which the gallbladder is removed by laparoscopic techniques. It is also referred to as minimally invasive surgery as it describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments.

  • Ileostomy

    It is a procedure where an opening is made surgically in abdominal wall. The ileum, which is the lower end of your small intestine, is passed through this opening and stitched into place. The patient is given a pouch to be worn externally which stores all of the digested food. This procedure is done if the rectum or colon is unable to properly function. If the ileostomy is temporary, part or all of the colon is removed, but a part of the rectum remains. For a permanent ileostomy, surgeon removes or bypasses the rectum, colon, and anus. In this case, patient will be wearing an external plastic pouch permanently to catch the waste products.

  • Exploratory Laparotomy

    An exploratory laparotomy (ex-lap) is a surgical operation where the abdomen is opened and the abdominal organs examined for injury or disease.

  • Whipple Procedure

    Also known as pancreaticoduodenectomy, the Whipple procedure involves removal of the "head" (wide part) of the pancreas next to the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach.

  • Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy

    It also known as stapled haemorrhoidopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of abnormally enlarged haemorrhoidal tissue, followed by the repositioning of the remaining haemorrhoidal tissue back to its normal anatomic position.

  • Robotic GI Surgery

    Robotic gastrointestinal (GI) surgery, also known as computer-assisted surgery uses robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. This minimally invasive, laparoscopic technique is used to treat a variety of conditions, ranging from prostate and ovarian cancers to the conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract such as Hiatal Hernias and Achalasia. Its benefits include significantly less pain, blood loss, risk of infection, and aids in faster recovery.

  • 3D Advance Laparoscopic Surgery

    3D Laparoscopic surgery removes tumors through a procedure in which a camera is inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall. As it moves the image of the abdominal organs is sent from the camera to the monitor. The 3D high definition view facilitates the surgeon’s work by improving surgical precision and hand- eye coordination which makes the surgery safer. It enables faster recovery with shorter hospitalization period, decreased blood loss and less post-operative pain.

  • Bariatric Surgery

    Bariatric surgery includes a variety of weight loss procedures done on people with obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch.
