Day-care gynaecological laparoscopic surgery is evolving specialty being competently performed by expert surgeon in few centres. In recent years the complexity of the procedures has increased with a wider range of patients being considered even for day care surgeries .Main aim in day care surgeries not only sending patient on same day but with less pain, comfortable and more comfort also.

Traditional surgeries require prolonged hospital stay after the surgery. Day care laparoscopic surgeries, in contrast uses modern surgical techniques to ensure that the patient recovers faster and can be discharged within 24 hours of admission and staying with family helps to recover faster physically and psychologically.

How does Day-care Laparoscopy Surgery work?

In Daycare Surgery, trained laparoscopic surgeons perform surgery using hi-tech, precision equipment designed to minimize pain, accelerate healing, and advance anesthesia techniques. Laparoscopic methods involve video-assisted surgery through a very small cut (often as small as 5mm to 10 mm) in the body, thus result in faster healing. Special anesthetic techniques are used to minimize pain during and after the procedure. Patients are able to return back to their normal activities much earlier than traditional surgery.

Selection of surgeries

A day-care procedure is performed only after thorough planning and evaluation of the patient by operating surgeon and anaesthetist. We usually avoid for more co morbid patients patients with comorbidities, sixty years and above and for very high risk surgeries. The patient’s condition is evaluated and monitored after the surgery by the doctor and trained staff, and a discharge is done only if the doctor certifies the patient as fit for discharge.
