Vasundhara Hospital relies on a team of highly experienced surgeons who possess broad capability across several areas which leads the patients with complex problems to have the benefit of being treated by a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons who are available to provide complete care.
Our surgical team includes:
A laparoscopy may be done to find the cause of symptoms such as abdominal pain, pelvic pain, or swelling of the abdomen or pelvic region. Or, it may be done if a previous test such as an X-ray or scan has identified a problem within the abdomen or pelvis.
Some common gynecological conditions which can be seen by laparoscopy include:
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Ovarian cyst
- Myoma / Fibroid
Laparoscopic General Surgery
Some commonly performed laparoscopic operations include:
- Removal of the gallbladder or laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
- Removal of the appendix.
- Removal of patches of endometriosis.
- Removal of parts of the intestines.
- Removal of uterus / Mymoa
- Fertility enhancing surgery
- Female sterilization.
- Treating ectopic pregnancy.
- Taking a biopsy of various structures inside the abdomen.
a. Laparoscopic Myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids)
Some fibroids can be removed laparoscopically. As in any surgery, complications from myomectomy, such as bleeding, infection, or injury to nearby organs, may occur. Recurrent fibroids may follow up to one third of myomectomies.
b. Laparoscopic Total Hysterectomy (removal of uterus and cervix)
Laparoscopic hysterectomy involves removing the entire uterus with minimally-invasive techniques, using a laparoscope. Once the uterus is removed, the inside edges of the vagina are brought together using suture, which is done laparoscopically.
c. Laparoscopic Bladder Support Surgery /Incontinence Surgery
Stress incontinence or loss of urine during coughing, laughing, or any other physical activity most typically develops after childbearing, and incontinence surgery is done to improve support for the bladder itself and for the valve mechanism at the bladder neck.
d. Laparoscopic Appendectomy
The laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgical technique involves inserting a miniature camera and surgical instruments to remove the appendix.
a. Oophrectomy (ovary removal surgery)
Oophorectomy is a surgical procedure to remove one or both of your ovaries. When oophorectomy involves removing both ovaries, it’s called bilateral oophorectomy. When the surgery involves removing only one ovary, it’s called unilateral oophorectomy.
Endometrioma is a type of cyst formed when endometrial tissue grows in the ovaries. It affects women during the reproductive years and may cause chronic pelvic pain associated with menstruation.
c. Pap test
A Pap test is a simple, effective screening tool that looks for abnormal cells on the cervix. Many abnormal cells resolve without treatment and most worsening conditions, when followed appropriately, can be treated successfully.
Indications for Pap test
- Most women aged 21-29 should have a Pap test every other year.
- The Pap test may not be performed if you have your period or if you have a vaginal infection.
- You should not have sexual intercourse, use spermicidal jelly, vaginal medications, douches or tampons for 24 hours prior to your Pap test, as they can interfere with the accuracy of the test.
Colposcopy helps identify abnormal cells by examining the external genital area (vulva), vagina, and cervix. It should not be performed during your period. You should try to avoid having intercourse, using spermicidal jelly, vaginal medication, douches or tampons for 24 hours prior to the colposcopy, as they can interfere with the accuracy of the test.
e. Uterine Balloon therapy
The purpose of Uterine Balloon Therapy (UBT) is to achieve permanent cessation of bleeding for the treatment of heavy uterine bleeding. Uterine balloon therapy only removes the endometrial lining of the uterus (the primary source of menstrual bleeding), rather than the entire uterus.
f. Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder. It may be necessary if you experience pain from gallstones that block the flow of bile.
g. Hernia Repair
Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia (a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. Hernias can occur in many places, including the abdomen, groin, diaphragm, brain, and at the site of a previous operation.
