Welcome to laparoscopyindia.com
This site provides information about abdominal and thoracic diseases, sweaty palms (hyperhidrosis) and obesity as well as the treatment of these conditions using laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, and weight loss (bariatric) surgery. This surgery, also known as “minimal access surgery”, is carried out via tiny incisions. As a result, patients undergoing minimal access surgery experience less postoperative pain, spend fewer days in the hospital and recover significantly faster than those having traditional open surgery. Single incision laparoscopic surgery – the latest advance – is carried out using only one small incision that heals practically without a scar. Hence, this form of surgery is aptly called “scarless” surgery.
Dr Deepraj Bhandarkar based in Mumbai, India is a renowned expert in minimal access surgery with over 24 years of experience. He has developed this extensive resource to raise public awareness about the modern treatment options available today and empower them to make informed decisions when choosing surgery for themselves or their near and dear ones.
Laparoscopic Surgery for Hernia
Silver Jubilee Celebration of the
First Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in India
Dr Udwadia delivering his
eloquent and inspiring address
on the occasion.
On May 31, 2015 surgeons from around the country gathered in Mumbai to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy in India performed by my teacher and mentor Dr. Tehemton Udwadia on May 31, 1990 in Sir J. J. Hospital.
Then a surgical registrar working with Dr Udwadia, I had the privilege of assisting him in that landmark operation – a defining moment in my life. My association with this master surgeon, engaging teacher and a warm and compassionate individual has shaped my career and helped me become who I am. For that, I owe him an immense debt of gratitude.
