Laparoscopic surgery, commnly called as key hole surgery is performed by small incisions with instruements whilst inside of the abdomen looked at the screen through a camera. Most of the abdominal surgeries now a days can be performed laparoscopically, thanks to the advancing technology.
Mr Gupta has a particular interest in performing bowel resections (mainly for cancer, sometimes for benign problems) laparoscopically. It does prolong the operation- time, however has a direct advantage post-operatively in recovery process, as well as cosmetically. It also helps in preventing further adhesions (scar tissue) in the abdomen.
