CONSULTANT SURGEON DR. KISSER IN VIENNA – GENTLE SURGERY
Consultant Surgeon Dr. Kisser in Vienna – minimally invasive surgery
“Dr. Michael Kisser, your consultant surgeon in Vienna, works almost exclusively with minimally invasive surgery.”
Minimally invasive surgery:
Up until the early 90`s, operations often required large incisions. Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopy, changed surgery as a whole and is now standard procedure of abdomen operations.
Through video-endoscopic surgery method, an abdominal incision is no longer necessary for reaching the actual operation spot. Through tiny incisions, a so-called “laparoscope” is inserted into the abdominal cavity. It is equipped with a mini-camera and a flashlight and can blow air or CO2 into the required area if needed. The surgery is then performed using tiny utensils, which too are inserted through small incisions.
Laparoscopy has great advantages:
- Reduced pain
- Excellent cosmetic results
- Shorter stay at the hospital
- Quicker recovery
In some cases, we use single-port-laparoscopy, meaning all work is done through one single opening. This requires an incision of 2,5-3cm, in which a small passage is placed, enabling the surgeons to work through it.
Like the normal laparoscopy, the advantages are a quick recovery, reduced pain, and excellent cosmetic results.
Some operations can be performed completely scarless, via the navel. A camera and utensils with which the surgery is done are inserted through the umbilical floor, leaving no visible scars.
