  • Minimal Access Laparoscopic Surgery

    Maximum relief/benefits with small scars - less pain - minimally invasive - faster recovery. Nowadays, the Laparoscopic Cancer Surgery is becoming a highly popular and in demand option for undergoing surgical oncology. With advancement of technology and research in the medical field, people in India and all over are becoming more aware or familiar of the advanced technique for cancer treatment. More and more people are choosing the Laparoscopic method of surgery over the traditional open cancer surgery as the benefits of Laparoscopic Cancer Surgery outweigh the benefits of traditional open cancer surgery.

    Laparoscopy cancer surgery is also known as Minimal Access Cancer Surgery.

    As the name suggests the cuts or incisions are very small. Minimal access surgery is a type of surgery completed with one or more small incisions instead of 1 single large incision/cut.

  • What Is Laparoscopy ?

    Laparoscopic or "minimally invasive" surgery is a specialized technique for performing surgery. Laparoscopic Surgery is a technique of operating inside the abdomen (laparos: means abdomen) with the use of small incisions. Each incision is called a "port". At each port a tubular instrument known as a trochar is inserted. Specialized instruments and a special camera known as a laparoscope are passed through the trochars during the procedure. The size of the incision varies from 3 mm to 15 mm depending upon the surgery performed. Almost every organ in the abdomen can be operated by using this technique.

    Laparoscopic surgery started in the early nineties and today has developed into a fine art. Technology continues to evolve making this type of surgery easier for surgeons to perform.

    Laparoscopic surgery is performed through small incisions. A telescope with a video camera inserted through one incision provides visualization of the operation on a TV monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through additional small incisions, and the entire operation is done with small cuts. Due to small incisions, the surgery is comparatively scar-free as compared to the conventional open cancer surgery. When the telescope is used to operate on the abdomen, the procedure is called laparoscopy. The process of viewing the affected internal organs through a telescope on a bigger screen and operating with the help of the visuals is laparoscopy.

  • Here is a list of just few benefits

    The benefits to the patient are enormous. Relatively painless recovery, much quicker discharge and an earlier return to normal activity. There are less chances of wound infection and post operative hernia formation.

    Shorter hospitalization there by lesser expenditure.
    Minimal blood loss
    High success rate
    Less Pain
    Lesser risk of wound infection
    Faster recovery, discharge to home, return to normalcy/work
    Improved cosmetic effect because of a smaller scar
    Less internal scarring
    It ensures minimum pain and discomfort to the patient

  • Laparoscopic Cancer Surgery as per Dr. Dinesh M G

    With an increase in highly capable super speciality doctors in India, there is no dearth of good specialized doctors here. Now, the need of travelling abroad or outside Bangalore for the treatment of advanced cancer surgeries is dramatically reduced as we have the best cancer doctors and best of state of the art technologies/treatment in Bangalore itself. From being the pioneers in the treatment to few of the best in India, Bangalore can boast of it all.

    People from all over come to Dr. Dinesh M G for the laparoscopic mode of treatment for cancer. Dr. Dinesh M G is a highly competent and super successful Laparoscopic Onco Surgeon who is an expert in the Onco Surgery (even open surgeries). He has accomplished innumerable surgeries successfully. To reduce the suffering of the cancer patients remains his primary goal, which prompted him to acquire specialization in Laparoscopic surgery and hence he has kept himself updated with the relatively new concept of laparoscopic minimal access surgery and worked relentlessly to be one of the best in the same.

    Patients come to him not only for being one of the best oncologists in India, but also because of his approach to the cancer patients. The safety and recovery of patient is always the primary concern and motto. He stands by his motto of "SMALL SCARS, LESS PAIN, FASTER RECOVERY" and ensures it is well taken care of. As per Dr. Dinesh M G, advancement and innovation in technology in the recent times is enabling a revolutionary approach towards cancer like never before in the form of minimal invasive cancer surgery, or in other words, laparoscopic surgery, in the field of oncology. With the help of this revolutionary treatment, the doctors can successfully eliminate the tumor from the affected area while ensuring minimum pain and discomfort to the patient along with aesthetically better scars than the conventional open surgeries.

  • Laparoscopic Cancer Surgery

    Dr. Dinesh M G having been educated and working in Karnataka, he is well versed in Kannada. Also he is able to converse fluently in English and Hindi.

    During the laparoscopic surgery, small incisions are made through which the pinhole camera and surgical devices are inserted into the body.
    Without causing disturbance or damage to the other organs, the surgeon takes control of the movement of the surgical instrument with the help of a clear view on the monitor.

    Prior to performing the laparoscopic surgery the surgeon has to have a specialization in this field. He has to be an expert in the conventional open cancer surgery plus he has to gain fellowship in these treatments.

    Dr. Dinesh M G, one of the best oncologist in India is well-versed with both the methods of surgery be it open surgery or laparoscopic.

    But as of now, his area of interest lies in eliminating tumors using the Laparoscopic method of surgery as it is more beneficial to the cancer patients.

    Furthermore, he strongly feels that more and more surgeons should acknowledge the laparoscopic minimal access surgery and opt for this method of surgery as it is a much safer and more effective cancer treatment option available as of now.

    As he believes in trying to ensure a better quality of life to the cancer patients, he firmly believes in less pain, less scar, fast recovery for an overall healing and wellbeing of the patient. Hence, on his part, he always makes it a point to spread awareness about the benefits of laparoscopic surgery. He believes in sharing his knowledge and battles for the laparoscopic minimal access surgery through scientific presentations at conferences through both national and international platforms.
