FAQs

What is Laparoscopy/ Minimal access surgery?

Laparoscopy, or minimal access surgery, is a technique where surgeries in the abdomen are conducted through small incisions using a camera-equipped instrument called a laparoscope. It results in smaller scars and quicker recovery.

When should I see a Gastro/ general Surgeon?

Visit a gastro/general surgeon for persistent digestive symptoms, conditions needing surgical attention, or upon referral from a primary care doctor.

How long is the recovery period for Laparoscopic surgeries?

Recovery from laparoscopic surgeries often ranges from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the procedure and individual health.

How many days stay at the hospital?

For laparoscopic procedures, a stay of 1 night is typical, and some can even be done as daycare. For open surgeries, the average stay is around 4 days, though this varies with each specific procedure.

What is the cost for a Laparoscopic procedure?

Cost for each Lap surgery depends on the type of the procedure, duration of the surgery and the stay. Our team will be able to guide you through the entire process.

Are these procedures covered under Insurance?

Yes, almost all Elective and emergency surgeries are covered by Health Insurances. We have a dedicated team to help you out with this process.

What Our Patients Say

I wanted to share my story to inspire others who may be facing a similar situation and to acknowledge my remarkable experience at Marina's clinic. It all began with persistent abdominal pain. As the days went by, the pain became increasingly unbearable. I was referred to the specialist Dr. Preethi Mrinalini who suspected gallstones as the cause of my discomfort. I went through a surgery and I woke up feeling relieved, already sensing a significant improvement. The kindness and dedication of the doctor and staff made me feel cared for, and I am immensely grateful for their tireless efforts.

I visited Marina's clinic for an outpatient consultation. From the moment I entered the clinic, I was greeted by a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and it was evident that hygiene was a top priority. I noticed that the hand sanitizers were readily available throughout the clinic, emphasising their dedication to maintaining a safe and healthy environment. The consultation was comprehensive and thorough. Their approach was empathetic and reassuring, which made me worry less about the procedure. Helpful OP consultation and excellent clinic hygiene
