In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single incision to enter into the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses several 0.5-1cm incisions. Each incision is called a “port.” At each port, a tubular instrument known as a trocar is inserted. Specialized instruments and a special camera known as a laparoscope are passed through the trocars during the procedure.
Requiring minimum incision, this form of surgery can be done for a wide range of procedures – from hernia operation to removal of tumours and ulcers. Ruby Hall Clinic was one of the first few to start with the state-of-the-art centre with advanced technology and skills at the hand of internationally reputed surgeons, way back in 1998. Since then, we have performed more than 10,000 advanced laparoscopic surgeries. The department of Laparoscopic Surgery is first to start 3D-Laparoscopy in Pune.
