Dr. Nagendra Parvataneni said Laparoscopy is rapidly evolving and newer techniques are being constantly introduced. Laparoscopic surgery is one of the most significant technique for minimally invasive surgery. Notable advances in the technology have greatly improved the uation and treatment of cancer patients too.
In the last six months, SevenHills hospital has treated close to 180 patients using advanced laparoscopic procedures.
Laparoscopy is an innovative surgical technique performed in the body through small incisions (0.5“1.5 cm) with the aid of a camera and can be used either to inspect and diagnose a condition or to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) as opposed to the larger slits needed in a traditional surgery.
