What is MAS?

MAS stands for Minimally Access Surgery. Minimally Access surgery in nothing but the use of advanced technologies to eliminate the need for large incisions of traditional surgery, instead of which it is performed through smaller incisions. MAS for gastrointestinal system includes laparoscopic surgery, keyhole surgery, single incision, scar-less surgery, thoracoscopy, video endoscopy, laser surgery and robotic surgery.

Why Choose Minimally Access Surgery?

Minimally Access surgery allows surgeons to correct many common problems without the patient being inconvenienced with a large incision. Since the incisions are much smaller, there is usually less post-surgery discomfort.

Benefits of Minimally Access Surgery

  • Small incisions
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less preoperative pain
  • Quicker return to normal activity
  • Less visible scarring
  • Elimination of potential complications
  • Reduced risk of herniation or wound separation

The patient is often allowed to go home within 24 hours of surgery and is able to return to work within a couple of days.

Is Minimally Access Surgery Safe?

Minimally Access surgery has been thoroughly studied in numerous clinical trials from around the world. In general, the risk of complications is similar or lesser than that seen with traditional open surgery in properly selected cases.

Is MAS Safe for Gastrointestinal Cancers?

There is strong evidence that minimally access surgery can be safely used to remove gastrointestinal cancers under a well-trained HPB surgeon’s supervision.
