How are GI Surgeries performed by the doctor?

Basically, all types of GI surgeries are conducted by the following three methods, Lets check out :

Traditional Open Surgeries

Traditional open surgeries involve making an incision using a scalpel. All major surgeries, including cancer, can be undertaken as open surgery. You may have seen such an operation over the television in the past. The surgeon makes a large incision (3-4 inches or larger), depending on the need.

Laparoscopy Surgeries

Nowadays, open surgeries are becoming less common due to a new technique called minimally invasive technology or laparoscopic surgery. It involves making tiny incisions (as small as 0.5 cm) with the help of a camera. A laparoscope, a long-fiber optical instrument with a camera, is used for keyhole surgery. It makes patient recovery quicker than before.

Advanced Robotic Surgeries

Traditional open surgeries involve making an incision using a scalpel. All major surgeries, including cancer, can be undertaken as open surgery. You may have seen such an operation over the television in the past. The surgeon makes a large incision (3-4 inches or larger), depending on the need.
