Minimal Access Surgery

What is Minimal Access Surgery?

Minimally invasive procedures use advanced technologies to avoid the need for the large incisions used in traditional open surgery. The development of these techniques has been an important advance for the benefit of patients and is useful for the treatment of many conditions. "Laparoscopic surgery" is a specific type of minimally invasive surgery, but the term is sometimes used to refer to minimally invasive surgery in general.

Minimally invasive surgery is any surgical procedure that is less invasive than open surgery used for the same purpose. Minimally invasive procedures typically involve the use of laparoscopes and remote control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope (Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic tool, used to view the inside of organs, inspect for abnormalities and take biopsies).

We at CAN-C are providing minimal access surgery for all types of cancers in Bangalore.

Laparoscopy - surgery done through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and tiny cameras and surgical instruments - was one of the first types of minimally invasive surgery. Another type of minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery. It provides a magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site and helps the surgeon operate with precision, flexibility and control.

We are committed to providing minimally invasive surgery or minimal access surgery (in Bangalore) with best patient outcomes.

Minimally invasive surgery offers potential benefits that can include:


Small incisions


Usually less discomfort


Reduced prescription pain medications


Low risk of infection


Short hospital stays


Quick recovery time


Less visible scarring


Reduced blood loss


Earlier return to normal activities

How is minimal access surgery or minimally invasive surgery is performed?
There are several different techniques that surgeons can use to perform minimally invasive surgery. Minimal Access/Laparoscopic Surgery is a surgical technique which involves small (keyhole) incisions instead of large cuts. The surgeon introduces a telescope with a video camera through this incision into the body cavity and operates by viewing the internal parts on a TV monitor. In traditional open surgery, the surgeon is unable to see directly into the patient without a large incision. The video camera efficiently becomes a surgeon's eyes in minimal access surgery, since to perform the procedure; the surgeon uses the image from the video camera placed inside the patient's body.

The goal of all of these techniques is to decrease pain and speed recovery by eliminating the need for a large abdominal incision. We at CAN-C are recognized as one of the leading centre for minimal access surgery treatment in Bangalore.
