At the Department of Minimal Access Surgery, patients are our primary focus. To bring you the full spectrum of care, we treat a variety of disease conditions by the minimally invasive approach. And thanks to our department's strong focus on research and education, we remain well informed of the latest advances, techniques, and technologies available for patients in the constantly evolving field of Minimal Access Surgery.
- To provide patients with state of the art neurosurgical care in a setting respectful of their needs.
- To engage in quality research endeavors that lead to innovative therapies and treatments, which may ultimately translate to improved patient care in the field of neurological surgery.
Introduction to Minimal Access Surgery
Laparoscopy today is firmly established in the armamentarium of surgeons worldwide. There has been a quantum jump in the application of laparoscopic surgery to include diverse therapeutic surgical procedures. Laparoscopic/ Endoscopic surgery is essentially performed by tiny incisions(~5-10mm) to introduce a camera and small instruments into the body.
Advantages of MAS:
- Laparoscopy often offers better visualization than open surgery, particularly better visualization of the hiatus and deep structures in the pelvis.
- Minimal access surgery (MAS) offers dramatic advantages in terms of the quality of life after the operation.
- Postoperative pain is reduced, which decreases postoperative narcotic use and its complications. This also aids in lower pulmonary complications.
- Smaller wounds are associated with fewer wound complications, less scarring, and better cosmesis.
- MAS results in reduction of postoperative adhesions.
- Patients stay in the hospital for a shorter period and recover faster.
- Patients are able to return to their normal activities faster (eg, feeding, school, work).
