Laparoscopy Unit

The field of surgery has experienced a revolution in the last 2 decades, and one of the most significant developments is laparoscopic surgery.

The advantages of Laparoscopic surgery include avoiding a large abdominal incision, less pain, less trauma, early recovery and short hospital stay.

The Endoscopy unit at Swapna Healthcare has been one of the earliest to be started (the 1980s) in the state of Andhra Pradesh, with the concept of bringing the latest technology of international quality for the benefit of the women of our state. We have three ‘State of The Art’ OTs with the latest technology of International Standards. Since then we kept pace with the rest of the world in upgrading the technology, equipment, and the professional skills. Our institution has been known for the past three decades for delivering highly ethical and professional practice with utmost personal care.

Laparoscopy Unit

The one unique advantage of our Laparoscopy unit is that every major surgery is attended by the team of highly qualified laparoscopic surgeons from gynaecology as well as general surgery. This increases the safety of the patient even in highly complicated cases.

Swapna Healthcare was one of the first hospitals in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to start Laparoscopic Surgery. Starting with diagnostic Laparoscopy, today we have expanded the facility to perform very complicated Laparoscopic surgeries. We have a team of Laparoscopic surgeons trained abroad who can take care of a range of gynaec and general surgical procedures. So far our hospital has performed several thousands of Laparoscopic Surgeries without any major complications.

Swapna Healthcare is the first center in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to be recognized by FOGSI (Federation of Obstetrics & Gynecological Society of India) for training gynaecologists in gynaecological laparoscopy. Several hundreds of gynaecologists had their basic & advanced training in Laparoscopy in our center.

Tubal Sterilization is a surgical procedure done on women as a permanent method of contraception. Laparoscopy is the most popular method of Female Sterilization.
