Laparoscopy is a type of surgery that uses smaller cuts than you might expect. Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical technique in which short, narrow tubes (trochars) are inserted into the abdomen through small (less than one centimeter) incisions. Through these trochars, long, narrow instruments are inserted. The surgeon uses these instruments to manipulate, cut, and sew tissue.
Offering minimally invasive surgical procedures for both simple and complex conditions of the abdomen and pelvic area, the laparoscopic services offered at Manipal Hospitals are both diagnostic and therapeutic.
Offering both traditional laparoscopic procedures and robotic-assisted procedures, our surgeons have been at the forefront in adopting new technologies to provide comfortable, painless and accurate diagnosis and treatment. In addition to palliative care, Sowmiya Hospitals' doctors take a multidisciplinary approach to determine the cause of the conditions and identify methods to prevent future complications.
Laparoscopy is used in diagnosis when non-invasive methods can't diagnose a condition, and surgeries performed are via small incisions, which increases postoperative patient recovery, reduces blood loss and pain and significantly improve cosmesis.
