Minimally Invasive Gall Blader Removal (Laparascopic Cholecystectomy)

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a less invasive technique to remove the gallbladder . This surgery uses a laparoscope (an instrument used to see the inside of your body) to remove the gallbladder. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is performed through several small incisions rather than through one large incision.With laparoscopic cholecystectomy, patients are able to carry out their routine work in less time, have less pain after surgery, and have a shorter hospital stay and a shorter recovery time. Surgery to remove the gallbladder with a laparoscope does not require that the muscles of your abdomen be cut, as they are in open surgery. The incision is much smaller, which makes recovery go quicker.

Hernia Repair Surgery

Hernia repair surgery or herniorrhaphy involves returning the displaced tissues to their proper position and reinforcement with a mask when needed. At Shifa International Hospital, our internationally qualified surgeons are highly experienced in treatment all kinds of major and minor hernia issues with precision.Hernia Repair Surgery is done through open and laparoscopic procedures.

Minimal Invasive Appendix Removal (Laparascopic appendectomy)

Appendectomy is a common emergency surgery that is performed to treat appendicitis, which is an inflammatory condition of the appendix. Traditionally, the appendix is removed through relatively large incision in the abdomen.Laparoscopic appendectomies are performed via very small incisions while simultaneously watching an enlarged image of internal organs on a monitor. Laparascopic appendectomy yields many benefits opposed to traditional appendectomy methods as it results in less postoperative pain shorten hospital stay, quicker return to bowel function, early return to normal activity.

Splenectomy

A Splenectomy is a surgical removal of the entire spleen which is a delicate fist-sized organ that sits under the left rib cage near the stomach. Splenectomy is performed though using a laparascope which enables our surgeons to carry out the procedure without any large incision. However, patients requiring traditional splenectomy are also treated by our team of surgeons with ease.  The spleen carries out significant function of maintaining body’s defense (immune) system, which involves containing special white blood cells which kills bacteria and help the body resist infections when sick as well as it helps in removing, or filtering, the old red blood cells from the body’s circulation.Benefits of Laparoscopic Splenectomy includes less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stay, faster return to a regular, solid food diet, quicker return to normal activities, better cosmetic results.

Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy

Hemorrhoids are abnormally enlarged vein caused due to excessive venous pressure occurring within or outside the anal sphincter.Stapled hemorrhoidectomy is an advanced technique for treating hemorrhoids,A circular, hollow tube. Through this tube, a long thread (Suture) is placed circumferentially above the internal hemorrhoids. The ends of the suture are brought out through the hollow tube. The a disposable instrument with a circular stapling device at the end known as stapler is placed through the first hollow tube and the ends of the suture are pulled. Pulling the suture pulls the expanded hemorrhoidal supporting tissue into the jaws of the stapler. The hemorrhoidal cushions are pulled back up into their normal position within the anal canal. The stapler then is fired. When it fires, the stapler cuts off the circumferential ring of expanded hemorrhoidal tissue trapped within the stapler and at the same time staples together the upper and lower edges of the cut tissue.
