Endosurgery Overview

Santasa provides highly skilled Gynaec Endoscopic Surgeries.

Endoscopic surgery is an innovative surgical procedure performed through very small incisions in the abdomen or other body cavities, using specialized instruments. The name of a particular surgery like Laparoscopy or Hysteroscopy denotes the body cavity that is being operated.

Endoscopic surgeries are used now a days in almost all fields of medicine. Laparoscopy indicates endoscopic surgery related to the abdomen and pelvis. Hysteroscopy indicates surgery related to the Uterine cavity.

In laparoscopy pencil-thin instrument called a laparoscope is used, and it gives the surgeon an exceptionally clear view of the abdominal cavity on a TV monitor.
