1) WHAT IS NO SCAR LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY ?
No scar surgery is done by single intra-umbilical incision. There are no other incisions on the body. The intra-umbilical incision is closed with absorbable monocryl sutures and hence no suture removal is required.
2) HOW IS NO SCAR LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY DONE?
Through a single 1cm. intra-umbilical Incision an operating scope with a 5mm. channel is used. The Instruments go in through the 5mm channel. Hence no extra ports are required like in conventional Laparoscopic surgery.
3) WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF NO SCAR SURGERY ?
Advantages include lesser pain, early discharge from hospital,
faster recovery, decreased chances of wound infection and port
site herniation and a virtually invisible scar.
4) WHICH SURGERIES CAN BE PERFORMED BY THIS TECHNIQUE?
Surgeries commonly performed by this method are
appendicectomy, hysterectomy, cholecystectomy, unruptured ectopic, tubal ligation, lymph node biopsies.
