The Department of Minimal Access & GI Surgery at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Navi Mumbai, offers gastrointestinal surgery services for a wide range of pathological conditions involving the gastrointestinal system. A minimally invasive approach to gastrointestinal surgeries is preferred to the conventional methods for most patients. This is because these surgeries involve smaller incisions and lesser pain. The patients also recover from the surgery much faster and can go home from the hospital sooner. The complications like hernias, infections, and scarring are also minimal as compared to traditional surgeries.
Conditions commonly treated using minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery
Most gastrointestinal conditions can be treated using the minimally invasive technique. Even bariatric weight-loss surgeries, gynaecological surgeries, and surgery for benign and malignant colorectal conditions are performed these days using minimally invasive techniques.
Advantages of minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery
Minimally invasive GI surgeries are as effective as conventional surgeries and, in most cases, have better outcomes. While a hospital stay of 5-10 days is often required after open surgeries, minimally invasive surgeries require a stay of much lesser duration. Also, there is much less trauma to healthy tissues during these procedures, which lessens the patients’ pain and ensures speedy recovery.
