Patiala, December 4

A live surgery workshop was held at Government Rajindra Hospital here wherein surgeries were performed and showcased to the budding surgeons. The workshop was organised by Dr Ashwani Kumar, professor and head, department of surgery, and Dr DP Singh, former professor and head of Rajindra Hospital. The workshop was virtually showcased throughout the country by the Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgeons of India.

The primary surgeries performed were 2-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy and difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The 2-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy was an advanced and cosmetically better way of performing laparoscopic cholecystectomy in which only two incisions were given instead of four incisions in the classic surgery, said Dr Ashwani. He said, “Laparoscopic surgeries are quite prevalent these days. Sometimes young surgeons practice these surgeries without adequate training which can have fatal and disastrous consequences. Such live workshops are a great way for such surgeons to hone their skills as well as for established surgeons to share their experiences, tips and tricks with their fellows. ” — TNS
