The new procedure, known as “one-hole laparoscopy-endoscopy” has the advantage of helping patients recover faster and leaves less scarring compared to the former 3-hole technique.
Dr. Trieu Trieu Duong, head of the hospital’s Surgical Ward, said his doctors have successfully performed the surgery on two patients.
A typical one-hole laparoscopy-endoscopy operation lasts 40 minutes and requires the patient to stay in hospital for at least three days.
Doctors at the National Army Hospital will also carry out the technique for ovarian cysts, stomach and large intestine surgeries, and the removal of gallstones.
