General and Minimally Invasive Surgery
General surgeons perform procedures that focus primarily on the abdominal area. Several of these procedures can now be performed using laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery, which uses small incisions and allows for faster healing.
To create space between internal organs and the abdominal wall, minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery involves inflating the abdomen with gas. Narrow tubes are inserted through small incisions, and instruments are passed through the tubes to conduct surgery, which the surgeon watches on a video monitor in a magnified view. Laparoscopic surgery has several benefits, including less invasive access to internal organs, decreased post-operative discomfort, and reduced need for strong pain killers. It means quicker recovery and resumption of daily activities.
