√ Laparoscopic Liver, Pancreas and Bilary Surgery
Majority of Laparoscopic (minimally invasive) procedures for the liver, pancreas, gallbladder system
and the digestive tract
are advanced surgical procedures that requires adequate training in traditional open surgery as well as proficiency in laparoscopic techniques. Relevant and adequate training in step-wise manner up the ladder of complexity should be acquired by surgeons offering this approach coupled with adoption of modern instrumentation and equipment to ensure safe execution of the surgical procedures.
√ Single Port Laparoscopic surgery (key-hole minimally invasive surgery)
can benefit patients by having less wound pain, less wound infection and faster recovery.
With further advances in surgical technique and instrumentation, further reduction in surgical trauma can now be achieved by using only a single key-hole instead of multiple key-holes in some of the abdominal surgeries.
Dr Stephen Chang is pioneer in this technique of single key-hole minimally invasive surgery with more than 500 case experience (one of the largest in the region and internationally).
