A few decades ago, the advent of laparoscopy or minimally invasive surgery allowed for improved patient comfort, improved cosmetic results and a reduction in pain, blood loss and hospital stay postoperatively versus traditional open surgery. However, even in traditional laparoscopy, 12 mm to 5 mm incisions are required to perform most operations.
The goal of creating ever smaller incisions to improve postoperative results has resulted in a revolutionary technique known as mini- or micro-laparoscopy.
Mr Ahmed can perform complex keyhole surgery through 2 or 3mm incisions which are barely visible after surgery – see photos below. This technique has the advantage of being nearly scarless, without compromising the ergonomics (as often happens in single incision lap surgery SILS).
Using specialised equipment and visualisation, Mr. Ahmed can perform diagnostic, biopsy and some surgical procedures using this technique. For most patients, this means a shorter procedure time, much reduced postoperative pain and a faster discharge from hospital.
Only a handful of surgeons around the world are able to routinely perform this procedure. Please contact us to learn more
