The OTs at Healthway are startegically located along with other critical areas. We have a large 7 theatre OT complex, all of which have laminar air flow systems. The walls and the ceilings are silver ion claded. The floor is seamless, vinyl coated, making it a 99.9% sterile zone.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), bandaid surgery, or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique. This has a number of advantages compared to the more common, open procedure or laparotomy. The advantages include reduced pain due to smaller incisions, reduced hemorrhage and shorter recovery time. The key element is the use of a laparoscope, which is a long fiber optic cable system which allows viewing of the affected area from a distance and provides more easily accessible location through the scope.
Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities. The surgery performed on the thoracic or chest cavity is called thoracoscopic surgery.
