Keyhole surgery making a difference in women’s lives


IEP Dehradun

Gone are the days when people used to have time to spend weeks or months for their treatment. Patients want to get the treatment done within no time and with minimum hassles.

Take the case of 43-yr old Sangeeta (name changed), a housewife and mother of 2 school going kids. She was suffering from vaginal bleeding due to fibroids in uterus. A busy schedule and work pressure gave her little time to take care of her health. She was worried about discussing this problem with her family & doctors.

Same was the case of Aparna (name changed), a housewife in a joint family and who also helps her husband in earning for family. She developed severe bleeding from vagina due to overgrowth of her lining of uterus (endometrium).

Dr. Arun Kalpdev, Senior Consultant, Division of Gynaec Minimal Access Surgery at Mullana Super Specialty Hospital, Ambala assured them that everything would be fine and that they needed few days to get back to her normal routine after their surgery.

Armed with the latest and advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques and skills, Dr Kalpdev performed DUAL PORT Laparoscopic hysterectomy (uterus removed through two tiny incisions on tummy) on these patients, gave adequate nursing and post-operative care. Both patients were discharged after 24-hr of hospital stay and within a few days both were able to resume their respective work.

The cost of the hospital expenses was also brought down, thanks to technology, which also helped in a shortened hospital stay, informed Dr Kalpdev.

In contrast to an abdominal surgery, which would have required a longer stay in the hospital and would have added additional financial burden also, he pointed out.

In addition to Minimally Access surgical services for my patient, state-of-the-art technology, international clinical protocols, near zero infection rates and personalized care practices are the tools which help me to speed up the process and reduce the stress among my patients, asserted Dr Kalpdev.

Utilizing a broad range of advanced devices and techniques, Dr Kalpdev is able to perform more complicated gynaec surgeries, including surgery for cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, removal of fibroids, surgery of uterine prolapse and many others, all with laparoscopic technique (Key hole surgery).
