At Kinvara Private Hospital we have highly experienced General surgeons who are ready to provide you with effective treatments for a range of general surgical problems. Conditions of the kidneys, pancreas, breasts, gastrointestinal tract and certain skin conditions are treated by our General Surgeons.
Our General surgeons at Kinvara have expertise in both open surgery and laparoscopic surgery and depending on your needs, will determine the best approach for you.
Open surgery involves making a cut in the skin, the length of which depends on the type of surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, involves making very small incisions in the abdominal wall, through which long instruments and video camera are inserted. The surgeon can then look inside the abdomen using the video camera and perform the procedure using the long instruments.
Patients who have laparoscopic procedures often heal more quickly and experience less pain than patients who have open surgery procedures. For this reason, laparoscopic surgery has become very popular.
