Laparoscopic / Minimally Invasive Surgery

In the last two decade surgery has evolved from open conventional to laparoscopic where surgery is done through 5 to 10 mm incision and thus avoiding big incision of open surgery and also less pain, reduced scarring, and faster recovery in laparoscopy.

The division of Laparoscopy/Minimally Invasive Surgery at Dharamshila Narayana Superspeciality Hospital performs endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions which were previously treated by open surgical procedures.

The procedures most commonly performed by this service are laparoscopic cholecystectomy, Nissen fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease, repair of all types of hernias, and laparoscopically-assisted colon resection, esophagectomy, and even pancreatoduodenectomy.

Additionally, laparoscopy is frequently used in the staging and management of intra-abdominal malignancies, including laparoscopic ultrasound-guided biopsies and tumor ablation. Few of the procedures done till date laparoscopically / laparoscopic assisted are:

  • Whipple’s procedure for periampullary carcinoma
  • Wertheim’s hysterectomy for carcinoma cervix
  • Laparoscopic assisted abdomino-perineal resection
  • Radical cholecystomy
  • Total radical gasterectomy for GE junction tumor


Our division offers a full spectrum of advanced laparoscopic (minimally invasive) procedures.  All of these can be done through several small (1/4 inch) incisions which causes less pain, makes recovery faster and is cosmetically more appealing.

The following is a partial list of the laparoscopic operations performed by our surgeons last year.  All of these were done for a variety of benign conditions as well as for cancer.

General procedures -

  • Diagnostic (exploratory) laparoscopy: examination of the abdomen to make a diagnosis.

  • Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair: repair of the hernias in the middle or on the side of the abdomen (usually resulting from a congenital defect or prior surgeries).
  • Laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair: repair of the hole in the diaphragm muscle usually causing heartburn.
  • Gallbladder and liver procedures -

  • Laparoscopic liver resection: removal of the diseased part of the liver for an infection, growth or cancer

Procedures on esophagus -

  • Minimally invasive esophagectomy: removal of the entire esophagus for a variety of benign conditions or cancer
  • Laparoscopic Heller myotomy: treatment for achalasia
  • Laparoscopic fundoplication: treatment of heartburn (gastro-esophageal reflux disease).
  • Laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair: repair of the hole in the diaphragm muscle usually causing heartburn.
  • Procedures on the stomach -

    • Laparoscopic gastrectomy: removal of the part of the stomach for tumors or ulcer disease

    Procedures for obesity -

    • Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: decreasing the size of the stomach and bypassing part of the intestine to help with weight loss.
    • Laparoscopic gastric banding: placement of an adjustable band around the stomach to help with weight loss.

    Procedures on the small intestine -

    • Laparoscopic small bowel resection: removal of the diseased portion of the small of the intestine for bleeding, tumors or inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease)
    • Laparoscopic small bowel bypass: bypass around the intestinal blockage
    • Laparoscopic Meckel’s diverticulectomy: removal of a Meckel’s diverticulum
    • Laparoscopic small bowel tumor excision: removal of the part of a small bowel containing a mass or tumor
    • Procedures on the large intestine (colon)
    • Laparoscopic colectomy (colon resection): removal of the diseased part of the colon (or the entire colon) for cancer, infection, inflammation (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and bleeding.
    • Laparoscopic appendectomy: removal of the appendix for appendicitis or other conditions

    Procedures on other organs -

    • Laparoscopic splenectomy: removal of the spleen.
    • Laparoscopic adrenalectomy: removal of the adrenal gland.
    • Laparoscopic appendectomy: removal of the appendix for appendicitis or other conditions
