Kalsekar Hospital General surgery department deals with extensive range of surgical ailments and emergencies. Our team of surgeons has expertise from treating minor swellings to performing complex abdominal surgeries and treating trauma cases. Abdominal surgeries are carried out via keyhole surgery. Minimal access surgery is completed with one or more small incisions instead of a large incision. The surgeon passes a telescope with a video camera through a small incision, which is usually only a quarter inch long, into a body cavity. Small incisions just like this are made to pass surgical instruments. The surgeon examines and operates on the area in question by viewing magnified images on a monitor. When the telescope is used to operate on the abdomen, the procedure is called laparoscopy. Faster recovery of patient is most significant advantage of Minimal invasive surgery method.
