Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Keyhole / Laparoscopic Surgery?
- In keyhole Surgery a scope is introduced into the body cavity through a 0.5 cm opening. The area is viewed through a CCD video camera attached to the monitor. Surgeons can perform any type of surgery by viewing the monitor. Because of the smallness of the opening, this kind of surgery is called Keyhole surgery, Minimal Access Surgery, or based on the equipment used, Laparoscopic or Endoscopic Surgery.
- Is it more expensive than conventional open surgery?
- The use of sophisticated equipment, instruments and consumables and special training required for surgeons makes the cost of keyhole surgery more expensive. But reducing the use of medicines, especially antibiotics and length of hospital stay, brings down the costs considerably.

- The different therapies include Radiation Therapy, Hormone Therapy, Chemotherapy, Biological Therapy Surgery.
- What is ovarian cancer ?
- Ovarian cancer is a malignant tumor that can begin in one or both ovaries. These tumors are made of abnormal cells that divide and create additional cells at a much faster rate than normal cells. These abnormal cells can then invade surrounding tissue and/or travel to other areas of the body.

- In general, how risky is plastic surgery?
- No matter how skilled, how much experience or how well trained your plastic surgeon is, like generally surgery, plastic surgery carries some risk. This includes infection, bleeding, blood clots, bad reactions to anesthesia, and others. As a patient, it is your responsibility to strictly follow both the pre surgery and post surgery instructions, given to you by your plastic surgeon.
- Does Plastic Surgery use "plastic"?
- No. The term "plastic" as used in Plastic Surgery is derived from the Greek word "plastikos" and the Latin word "plasticere" both of which means "to mould". It does not refer to the actual materials used in the course of the surgery itself. Normally, the Plastic Surgeon will make use of the patient's own tissues from another location of the body to achieve the required results.
- What is Kidney Transplant ?
- Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage renal disease. Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related or non-related transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.
