Minimal Access Surgery (Laproscopy, Thoracoscopy)
Through thoracoscopy and laparascopy, paediatric surgeons can perform the most complicated intra-abdominal or intrathoracic procedures. The miniaturization of the surgical instrumentation and improved optics such as high-resolution digital camera, telescope, and light source allow our surgeons to perform intricate operations deftly, even in babies weighing one kilogram.
Why choose Manipal Hospitals
At Manipal Hospitals, children get exceptional attention and deservedly so. Because we understand what a sick baby goes through. This is why our paediatric experts prefer opting for the non-invasive or minimally invasive mode of diagnosis and treatment, hence ensuring these precious little people are not put through unnecessary pain and discomfort.
Our laparoscopic paediatric surgeons perform delicate procedures in newborn babies to correct congenital anomalies such as diaphragmatic hernia, esophageal atresia (abnormal narrowing), duodenal atresia and so on. Our exceptionally skilled paediatric surgeons are acquainted with state of the art technology such as robotic surgery in newborns and infants, the use of single incision surgery, single port laparoscopic surgery, and mini laparoscopy procedures. Thoracoscopy enables our paediatricians to view the chest and lungs, and the space surrounding the lungs (pleural space). Through thoracoscopy, they perform lung biopsy to diagnose lung cancer, mesothelioma and other chest cancers, lung and esophagus surgery, Hiatal hernia repair, as well as surgery to relieve gastro-esophageal reflux disease. During all these procedures, the comfort of children is our primary focus.
