More than 100 experienced surgeons watched the advanced laparoscopic surgeries
Doctors at HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka, a multi-speciality facility, successfully performed three live laparoscopic surgeries led by Dr Randeep Wadhawan, HOD and Consultant – Department of Minimal Access Surgery, Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery & Gastrointestinal Surgery and his team of doctors. The live surgeries were performed at the conference on Fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery (FALS UGI 2021), organised by HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka at Vivanta by Taj Dwarka, New Delhi. The patients underwent live procedures, like para-oesophageal hernias type III, metabolism and bariatrics.
Among the three surgeries, the 43-year-old patient from Mumbai came with a complaint of abdominal pain, regurgitation of food and vomiting on and off. Laparoscopic surgery was used to move his stomach down from his chest (thoracic cavity) and closed the hernia defect.
Additionally, there were two procedures performed, one on a 44-year-old patient from Bihar suffering from diabetes and obesity. The patient underwent a tailored Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, a form of bypass surgery used to treat obesity and diabetes patients.
The third surgery was performed on a 59-year-old super-obese woman with a BMI of 52Kg/m2 who came with acute upper abdominal pain and was diagnosed with acute inflammation of the gall bladder due to gall stones. She underwent Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy and laparoscopic gallbladder surgery at the same time.
Raman Bhaskar, Hospital Director, HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka, said “We appreciate our doctors for such an insightful session and how via the advance technology we were able to reach more than 100 surgeons across the country, who participated in the Fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery 2021 and got an opportunity to learn the new advancement in laparoscopic surgery.”
