The Minimally invasive Gynae Department in PSRI headed by Dr. Rahul Manchanda and his team successfully performed the first such surgery in Delhi.
Dr. Manchanda is one of the only 5 Gynaecologists all over India who have used this technology.

 

This is a different laser than the one used in women and has advantages of being much more precise, less traumatic, better healing, less postoperative pain, earlier recover and many more advantages.

 

The laser is introduced through small incision and through a tube in order to treat and avoids large painful and unsightly scars.

The equipment is costly and a one-time investment and the cost is not being passed on to the patients. We are getting patients from countries abroad also for this now as it is yet not widely available abroad.

 

It has excellent results and can treat diseases like Endometriosis where generally bleeding is much more. Other diseases like Fibroids, Ovarian cysts , Cancer can also be treated.
