India calling

The first two-port laparoscopic hernia repair treatment in the world has come to India. Founder of the Laparoscopy Hospital situated in West Delhi's bustling Tilak Nagar area, and the first qualified Minimal Access Surgeon of India, Dr. R.K. Mishra has developed this new technique which has a 50 per cent cost decrement over the conventional four-port cholecystectomy.

Says Dr.Mishra, "We frequently perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy and hernia repair by two-ports. We have developed this new technique with the help of modified extra corporeal Meltzer's knot.

This innovative method of gall bladder removal can be used for simple uncomplicated cholelithiasis cases by experienced surgeons."

Success rate

The Laparoscopy Hospital is dedicated to treatment, research and training in laparoscopy. Dr. Mishra, who claims a 95 per cent success rate for this new technique, says the patients are discharged the very next day and they can go to work after just a week.

The surgery takes 10 to15 minutes more than the conventional method.

The hospital even has patients coming from corporate hospitals and the response from them has been very good.

With nearly 25 successful cases and with more than 1500 surgeons taking training, India has already become a benchmark in pioneering techniques in laparoscopy.
