Laproscopy Surgery is a specialised branch of Pediatric surgery for the past twenty five years, the progress in pediatric Laparascopic surgery is much delayed than adult Laparascopic surgery.
(Abdominal cavity and Hemodyamic problems)
Initially the common procedure done in Pediatric Laparscopy is removal of Appendix. Now we do almost all pediatric procedures by Laparascopy which were done orginally by open (conventional) method. The other common Laparascopic procedure include removal of ovarian cyst, removal of non functioning small kidneys for non palpable undescended testis, diagnostic laparascopy for recurrent abdominal pain.
Our Department at ICH has seperate Pediatric Laparascopic unit with all its accessories
Advanced Pediatric Laparascopic Procedure include LAARP (Laparascopic Assited Ano Rectal Pull Through), Laparascopic Plication of eventration of diaphragm, VATS (Video Assister Thoracoscopic Surgeries) for Empyema, Mediastinal Cyst, Lymph biopsy. I was trained in Laparascopy ten years back by our senior Pediatric Surgical faculties and I attended every year Pediatric Laparascopic workshop conducted in India, Since 2002.
I have done more than Five hundred Laparascopic apprendicectomies, Large number of Ovarian cyst, LAARPand VATS.
The Training in pediatric Laparascopic is really challenging we need patience to learn pediatric laparascopic, their is always learning curve in all new methods.
