The Institute of Laparoscopic & Bariatric Surgery at CARE Hospitals focuses on Minimal Access Surgeries (MAS), which are a specialized form of surgery allowing surgeons to operate without making large incisions, as is done in traditional (open) surgery. The procedures are performed with the help of tiny incisions. This ensures that patients have less post-operative pain, spend a shorter time in the hospital and recover significantly faster than after an open surgery. The Institute of Laparoscopic & Bariatric Surgery performs almost 70% of abdominal operations using MAS.
CARE Hospitals has pioneered minimal access surgical techniques, which facilitate faster recovery, have fewer complications and need less post-surgical follow-up. We carry out advanced laparoscopic, biliary/pancreatic, colorectal oncologic procedures and are among the few hospitals in the country to offer scarless minimal access surgery options, adopting the latest methods. We perform bariatric procedures on morbidly obese patients to help them achieve significant weight loss, when an exercise and diet program has been instituted but not succeeded. This often helps them overcome co-morbid conditions such as hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea.
Our team includes experienced surgeons, skilled anesthetists and intensivists, as well as trained surgical residents.
