Minimal Access Invasive Surgery Wockhardt Hospital Mumbai

The Wockhart Minimal Access Surgery Hospital is equipped with High-end technology to perform precision surgery in this newly developed modality of surgical treatment, which until recently required large incisions on the human body. It encompasses operative procedures for the nervous system, ENT, thorax, abdomen, urinary tract, reproductive system and joints. This technology not only minimises surgical trauma, pain and blood loss but also shortens hospitalisation and improves aesthetics.

Traditionally surgeons had to cut wide and deep (Incision) to reach (Access) organs for large incisions caused pain, were prone to infections/ hernia and often rendered poor cosmetic results. These factors were the underlying cause of significant mortality and morbidity. Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) makes it possible for surgeons to reach (Access) various organs in the body cavities through small incisions (Minimal).

Wockhardt Minimal Access Surgery Hospital has acquired complete State-of -the-art range of endoscopic technology required for carrying our minimal access surgery. These include: Endovision Tricam SL, Harmonic Scalpel, Medical grade monitor, CO2 Insufflator and a wide range of high precision instruments. Minimally Invasive Brain Tumor Surgery - Endoscopic removal of tumor through nose (Expanded Endoscopic Trans-Nasal Approach)

Minimal Access Invasive Surgery Wockhardt Hospital in Mumbai, Invasive Surgery

ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography) is used primarily to diagnose and treat conditions of the bile ducts, including gallstones, inflammatory strictures (scars), leaks (from trauma and surgery), and cancer. ERCP combines the use of x rays and an endoscope, which is a long, flexible, lighted tube.

Through the endoscope, the physician can see the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject dyes into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they can be seen on x rays.

The treatment of colorectal cancer with the laparoscopic approach is slowly gaining acceptance throughout the world. A newly published research paper on laparoscopic total colectomy for colorectal cancers in Surgical Endoscopy clearly establishes the benefits of this approach over the open surgical approach. In fact, we recently performed a laparoscopic total colectomy in a colorectal cancer case in Bangalore and found that the advantages outweigh the shortcomings.

Thorough Investigation: Though the incidence of colorectal cancer is not high in India, the occurrence of synchronous cancer makes its diagnosis and treatment complicated. Around five per cent of colonic cancers are synchronous in nature. The second cancerous growth can be easily missed and can be anywhere in the large intestine.

A complete large bowel workup is essential for the diagnosis of synchronous cancer. Colonoscopy should be used vigilantly to look for the second tumour after the primary cancer has been detected. In the colorectal case in Bangalore, where laparoscopy was effectively used to treat the cancer, the patient had primary cancer in the sigmoid colon and a second one in the caecum. Using the laparoscopic colectomy approach, both the cancers can be dealt with easily and effectively in a single procedure.

Laparoscopy vs Open Surgery : -

Minimal Access Invasive Surgery Wockhardt Hospital Mumbai, Laparoscopic-Appendectomy

In a study conducted between June 1997 and January 2005, results of which have been published in Surgical Endoscopy, the short-term clinical outcome and oncologic results have been examined in six colorectal

cancer patients who underwent elective laparoscopic total colectomy or proctocolectomy at the Prince of Wales Hospital at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The outcome and progress of these patients were compared with that of 12 patients who underwent open total colectomy or proctocolectomy during the same period. The study is probably the first of its kind that compares the results of laparoscopic and open total colectomy in the case of colorectal cancer, especially synchronous cancer.

In the laparoscopic group, the indications for surgery were synchronous colorectal surgery in three patients, single colorectal cancer arising out of polyposis in two patients and colorectal cancer associated with ulcerative colitis in one. In the open surgery group, besides synchronous colorectal cancer in eight patients and single colorectal cancer associated with synchronous polyps in two patients, there were two cases of single colorectal cancer with invasion into another segment of the colon.

There was no significant difference in the age, gender or comorbidities in patients in the two groups, but the mean length of the tumour was shorter and its stage less advanced in the laparoscopic group. The median follow-up period was shorter for the laparoscopic group; it was 43.9 months compared with 48.2 months for the open surgery group.

A comparison in the clinical outcome of the two groups shows that parenteral analgesia was given for a significantly lesser duration for patients in the laparoscopic group. It was three days for laparoscopy patients and five for open surgery patients. There were no differences in the two groups as far as the following factors go: time to first bowel motion, time to resumption of diet, time to full ambulation, duration of hospital stay and peri-operative morbidity. There was no operative mortality in either of the groups. One case needed to be converted to open surgery due to bleeding. The oncologic results were also similar for the two groups. The parameters measured were the number of lymph nodes removed, recurrence rates and survival rates.

In the recent past, it had been established that laparoscopic partial colectomy had many benefits over open surgery, like reduced post-operative pain, faster return to bowel function, shorter hospital stay, lower morbidity and an earlier return to normal quality of life. It is also an oncologically safe procedure.

In comparison, total colectomy has been considered a technically more complicated procedure to perform. Now, this study proves that this highly complex surgery also has many benefits. But where it did not compare well with open colectomy was the median operative time, which was 427.5 min for the laparoscopic and 172.5 min for open surgery. But with increased experience in this approach and the availability of more sophisticated energy sources, the operative time has come down. Undoubtedly, laparoscopic total colectomy has become not only a viable but also a highly effective surgical procedure for colorectal cancer.

Hepatic Resection for Malignant Liver : -

  • Hepatic Resections for Benign & Malignant Liver Tumors
  • Resection for Carcinoma of Bile Ducts & Gall Bladder
  • Surgery fir Portal Hypertension Normally, blood is carried to the liver by a major blood vessel called the portal vein. If blood can't flow easily through the liver because of cirrhosis or block in the portal vein, the pressure in the portal venous system increases. This higher pressure in the portal vein is called portal hypertension.

    When the pressure becomes too high blood backflows to the veins in the esophagus and stomach (esophageal & gastric varices). Beyond a critical pressure these varices rupture and gives rise to blood vomiting called Hematomasis. This requires management by a team of trained Gastroenterologist, Interventional Endoscopist & a Surgeon.

  • Meso-artial shunt for Budd - Chiari Syndrome Budd - Chiari Syndrome is a rare problem that results from blood clotting in the veins flowing out of the liver (hepatic veins). The high pressure of the blood in these veins leads to an enlarged liver, and to an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, called ascites. This is managed either by surgical bypass shunt or Interventional Radiology (TIPS)
  • Bilio-enteric anastomasis for Bile duct strictures Bile duct which carries bile from liver to intestine can get narrowed due to various causes. This obstruction can be relieved by Endoscopic Stenting or Surgical Bilio-enteric anastomasis

Nissen fundoplication : -

Minimal Access Invasive Surgery Wockhardt Hospital Mumbai, Invasive Surgery, keyhole-minimal-access-surgery, Laparoscopic-Appendectomy, Laparoscopic-Cholecystectomy

When drug treatments are not satisfactory, GERD can also be treated with a form of surgery called Nissen Fundoplication. It takes the top portion of the stomach (the "fundus") and wraps it around the lower end of the esophagus and the lower esophageal sphincter. This increases the pressure at the lower end of the esophagus and creates a one way valve, which allows food to pass into the stomach, but prevents stomach acid from flowing into the esophagus and causing GERD.
