Some of the laparoscopic procedures that VenArt Clinic performs successfully are:

Breast Surgery

Breast Surgery is a type of surgical procedure which is used to treat various types of breast cancer. During the surgery, the aim is to remove as much of the tumor as possible without damaging healthy tissue. There are different types of breast surgery, such as lumpectomy, mastectomy, and sentinel node biopsy.

Lumpectomy is usually used to treat early-stage breast cancer. This procedure removes only the cancerous area and some surrounding tissue. It does not involve removing the entire breast or nearby lymph nodes.

Mastectomy involves removing either the entire breast (simple mastectomy), or the entire breast plus nearby lymph nodes (modified radical mastectomy). This procedure may be recommended in more serious cases of cancer when lumpectomy results cannot provide an adequate amount of tissue removal or if there are symptoms that suggest cancer has spread beyond the initial site.

Sentinel node biopsy is a procedure in which a small sample of lymph nodes near the tumor are tested for cancer cells that may have spread beyond the initial site prior to any other treatment being administered. The sentinel nodes can help physicians determine if further surgery or radiation therapy will be necessary.

At VenArt Clinic, our experienced doctors use advanced equipment and techniques to ensure optimal preoperative assessment, along with individualized treatment plans for each patient undergoing breast surgery procedures. Our medical professionals strive to provide personalized care which takes into account both physical and psychological needs throughout all stages of your treatment experience.

Tubal sterilization

Tubal sterilization, also known as tubal occlusion, is a permanent contraceptive method for couples who no longer want children. It involves blocking or cutting the fallopian tubes to prevent eggs from being released and fertilized. This procedure is the most effective form of female sterilization and does not require hormone injections. Tubal sterilization can be done in a few different ways: laparoscopically, minilaparotomy (a small incision in the abdomen), or hysteroscopically (using a lighted telescope). The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes, with most patients returning home the same day. Afterward, there are typically no further complications, although some women may experience minor discomfort and bleeding for a few days after the procedure. As with any medical decision, it's important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before getting tubal sterilization.

Adhesiolysis

Adhesiolysis is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the use of laparoscopic tools to break up and remove adhesions, which are fibrous bands of tissue that form between the pelvic organs due to infection, endometriosis or certain surgical procedures. This can lead to infertility or chronic pelvic pain, making it an important area of treatment for women's reproductive health. During Adhesiolysis, the patient is placed under general anesthesia and a small camera is inserted into the abdomen so that the surgeon can view what they are doing. The surgeon then uses tiny instruments to cut or burn away any existing adhesions before removing them from the body. Adhesiolysis has become an increasingly popular treatment option thanks to its minimally invasive nature, shorter recovery time and decreased risk of complications compared with traditional open surgery. While it can be an effective way to manage symptoms caused by pelvic adhesions, doctors may also recommend lifestyle changes such as increased physical activity, dietary changes and stress reduction in order to prevent further formation of these abnormal tissues.

Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or pockets that form on the surface of each ovary. They can range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters and may be filled with fluid, blood or both. In some cases, ovarian cysts may not cause any symptoms, while in other cases they can cause pain or discomfort. Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat ovarian cysts. This procedure involves making small incisions in the abdomen and then inserting tiny surgical instruments through these incisions to access the ovaries. During laparoscopy, the surgeon can examine, diagnose and even remove the cyst if necessary. If an ovarian cyst is larger than 6 cm in diameter, laparoscopic intervention is recommended for removal. Laparoscopy provides an effective treatment for ovarian cysts as it offers more effective visualization of the affected areas and allows for direct examination of any abnormalities found on the ovaries. Additionally, laparoscopy has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional open abdominal surgery, such as infection and internal organ damage. It is important to note that pregnant women should not undergo laparoscopic surgery due to potential risks associated with the procedure.

Uterine fibroid

Uterine fibroids are benign tumours of the muscle fibres in the uterus. They can vary in size, and can be as small as a few millimetres or as large as several centimetres in diameter. Usually, uterine fibroids are not accompanied by symptoms and do not require treatment. On the other hand, they can cause periodic heavy bleeding, abdominal pain and infertility. In some cases, it is necessary to perform a myomectomy (laparoscopic ablation) - a procedure that preserves the uterus while removing the fibroid. During this operation, a small incision is made in the abdomen and special instruments are used to reduce the size of the fibroid or remove it completely from the uterine wall. As a result, reproductive function is maintained without any significant side effects for the patient. In more severe cases when there is an increased risk of developing complications due to large fibroids or those located close to vital organs, hysterectomy may be recommended - complete removal of the uterus along with all of its contents including fibroids. This procedure has long-term consequences such as inability to get pregnant and menopausal symptoms.

Pelvic static disorders

Pelvic static disorders the uterus can slip from its normal physiological position due to weakening of anatomical elements. Uterine prolapse and vaginal vault prolapse can be corrected and treated laparoscopically: suspension of the uterus or vaginal vault can be achieved using a special biocompatible mesh.

Oncological procedures

Before radical surgical treatment or chemotherapy treatment, laparoscopy is used as a routine procedure to check the status and extent of the cancer. In addition, laparoscopy is used for staging the cancer and for biopsies. Procedures such as omentectomy or pelvic and periaortic lymphadenectomy can also be performed. Even more than that, pre-irradiation ovarian transposition can be performed to remove the ovaries from the irradiated area to preserve their function.

Treatment of endometriosis

Treatment of endometriosis can vary depending on the severity of the condition, and may include medications, lifestyle changes and/or surgery. Medications for treating endometriosis include oral contraceptives, progestins (medicines that help to reduce the growth of endometrial tissue), gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GNRH agonists) or danazol. These medications often help to reduce pain related to the condition but do not cure it.
Surgery is another option to treat endometriosis and remove some or all of the abnormal tissue. Laparoscopy is usually used, which involves making small incisions in the abdomen and using a camera to look inside the pelvis area. The surgeon can then remove any visible endometriotic lesions through these small incisions using special instruments such as scissors, cautery devices and laser devices. This type of surgery is minimally invasive and has a high success rate in reducing pain caused by endometriosis.
In some cases, women may choose hysterectomy as a treatment option for severe endometriosis which cannot be effectively treated with other methods, although this procedure has its own set of risks and complications. However, hysterectomy may provide long-term relief from symptoms associated with advanced stages of the disease.

In addition to medical or surgical treatments for endometriosis, lifestyle changes are also recommended. Eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help reduce inflammation caused by endometrial tissue growth outside its normal location. Maintaining an appropriate weight through regular physical activity can also improve symptoms associated with endometriosis. Stress management techniques such as yoga or meditation may also be beneficial for managing pain related to this condition as stress is known to worsen symptoms and interfere with healing processes in many medical conditions including endometriosis.

Optimal surgical treatment ensures optimal results!

This is why minimally invasive abdominal exploration and surgery techniques, such as those performed with a laparoscope, can offer numerous benefits:

The procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia and last between 30 to 90 minutes depending on their complexity. Incisions are kept small, typically ranging from 0.5 to 1 centimeter in size, which further reduces the risk of complications and helps speed up recovery time.

Hospitalization is relatively short – typically one to two days – meaning that patients can resume normal daily activities within a few days after the procedure.

Age or pregnancy does not necessarily impede a successful outcome either; in fact, depending on the procedure being done, it can be performed by pregnant or breastfeeding women. With the right care and attention to detail, minimally invasive abdominal exploration and surgery using laparoscopy provides an effective solution for many patients while also resulting in fewer risks than traditional open surgery methods.
