Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery, is a surgical procedure performed with a video camera and a few thin instruments. During surgery, a tiny (up to one centimeter) incision is made through which plastic ports are installed in the abdomen, through which the video camera and instruments are passed. This is how any organ or pathology is approached. The surgeon controls the manipulation using the image transmitted to the screen by the video camera.

The advantages of laparoscopy are: less discomfort associated with surgery, early rehabilitation, fewer days spent in the hospital, much less scarring on the body. It is also believed that some organs are easier to approach and visualize with the above method.

Mardaleishvili Medical Center’s General Surgery Department  offers patients all types of laparoscopic surgeries:

  • Gallbladder excision due to cholelithiasis
  • Gernioplasty of esophageal orifice
  • Laparoscopic treatment of various diseases of liver, colon and adrenal gland
  • Full range of gynecological surgeries, treatment of ovarian and uterine diseases (including oncological).

In addition, the Mardaleishvili Medical Center offers diagnostic laparoscopy. Urgent morphological examination service is available in our clinic.

Experienced surgeons perform laparoscopic surgeries at the Mardaleishvili Medical Center. In addition, our clinic continues to cooperate closely with foreign specialists in laparoscopy.

Clinic is equipped with the state-of-the-art  laparoscopic equipment of Japanese giant Olympus, which features are recognized throughout the world. According to some data,  this laparoscopic equipment has no analogues, e.g.  a source of energy to impact the tissue, the so called  Thunderbeat. Among other positive characteristics, it provides the integration of ultrasound scalpel and bipolar electrocoagulation. It can accurately target tissue and coagulate a blood vessel up to 7 mm with minimal heat exposure. Such an instrument is very practical for laparoscopic (and open) liver surgeries, urologic, and bariatric surgeries. In addition, the laparoscopic instrument itself is equipped with the so called  NBI mode, which is of particular importance for the detection of pathological tissues and biopsy sites.
