General and MI Surgery

General surgery covers a wide range of surgical procedures where the surgeon takes a holistic approach to address different ailments. Minimally invasive (MI) surgeries, nowadays, are available for a large number of surgical procedures. It is more advantageous as it involves fewer cuts, lesser pain and the recovery period of patient is faster than the general surgery.  A surgeon uses different techniques in MI surgeries like laparoscopy or robots.

Laparoscopic surgery involves fewer incisions and the surgeon uses small tubes and tiny cameras. Robotic surgery offers a magnified 3D view of the surgical site allowing the surgeon to operate with better flexibility and precision.

The surgeon decides whether MI surgery will be applicable or not depending on the condition. SpringMedo with its partnership with top-ranked medical facilities will assist you in availing the best surgical care facility as per your requirement.
