Laparoscopic Revisional Procedures

Laparoscopic Revisional Procedures

They are usually done for complications or failures of previous procedures. Before undergoing surgery, extensive counselling for failures have to be done to understand if the problem is procedure related or patient-habits related. For complications and approved failures, the anatomy of previous procedures has to be studied thoroughly. After all modalities are exhausted, patients can undergo a revisional procedure. They carry higher risk than primary procedures, in the medical literature, as high as three times the risk of primary procedures.

These operations usually require more time and effort compared to the first procedures. The anatomy of tissues is usually altered, and adhesions have to be separated. After restoring the familiar normal anatomy, the intended procedure can be done. Even after multiple previous open operations, the procedure can be done laparoscopically. It is our centerís policy to tackle everything laparoscopically as it provides us better visualization and provides the patient more comfort. These complex procedures, are Dr. Ahmad Bashirís main interest. His results are excellent, with great patient satisfaction record.

All Procedures can be done at GMBC and Jordan Hospital.
