General & Laparoscopic Surgery

Home / Center of Excellence / General & Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as 'keyhole surgery' or 'minimally invasive surgery’ is now accepted as having major advantages over traditional surgery. This form of surgery leaves minimal scarring and involves less cutting of tissues. Patients therefore experience less pain after surgery and return to full fitness faster than after open surgery.

General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs, e.g., intestines including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland (depending on the availability of head and neck surgery specialists). They also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, and hernias.
