Minimal Invasive Surgery (Pioneer of laser hysteroscopy in west-africa with over 300 successful hysteroscopy surgery)

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS), often known as pinhole surgery or (micro-surgery), is utilized as an alternative to traditional open surgery at Alps Hospital and Diagnostics wherever possible. It is used for either surgical or diagnostic purposes. Minimally invasive surgery involves the use of an endoscope, a thin tube with a camera, and light that is inserted into natural openings of the body or through small cuts made in the body. Sometimes only one small incision is made and is referred to as a “single incision.”. MIS modalities available at Alps hospitals and diagnostics include Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery in relation to general, traditional open surgery are:

  1. Less damage to the body because small incisions are used instead of larger cuts, which are often required in traditional surgery.
  2. faster recovery time
  3. less pain,
  4. Lower risk of infection.
  5. Less scarring on the abdomen.
  6. Short hospital stays: quick hospital discharge hours after surgery.

Gynaecological laser surgery 

Gynaecological laser surgery are surgeries that uses laser for gynaecological treatments. Lasers can provide exceptional versatility – delivering gentle ablative and non-ablative thermal treatments for an ever-expanding range of applications. CO₂ and thulium lasers are tools that are used for gynaecological treatments which have recorded tremendous successes in the therapeutic world. These procedures reduce surgical invasiveness and duration, morbidity, damage to surrounding tissue and ensure more rapid healing of patients with lower incidence of complications.

There is a significant increase in execution speed, limited blood loss, absence of abdominal and uterine scars, minimal morbidity, absence of intrauterine volume reduction, and it is also very affordable. .

Laparoscopy: (Major Uses)

  1. Evaluation of infertility
  2. Missing contraceptive device
  3. Treatment of ectopic pregnancy
  4. Treatment of PCOS (Ovarian drilling)
  5. Treatment of pelvic adhesives
  6. Treatment of endometriosis

Hysteroscopy: (Major Uses)

  1. Evaluation of infertility
  2. Removal of endometrial polyps
  3. Removal of adhesives to investigate the cause of virginal bleeding.
  4. Evaluation of abnormal uterine bleeding
  5. Correction of uterine abnormalities
  6. Missing IUD
  7. Treatment of fibroids etc

During minimally invasive surgery, general anesthesia is administered to keep you asleep during surgery. The surgeon will then further make a small incisions between 2 and 5 millimetres as a reference. In some cases, special surgical instruments are inserted and used to explore, remove, or repair a problem within the body. The surgeons at Alps Hospital and Diagnostics are highly trained and experienced in advanced minimally invasive surgery procedures and will be able to determine if minimally invasive surgery is right for you.
