World Laparoscopy Hospital is a nonprofit super specialty academic medical institute that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education in Minimal Access Surgery. WLH was established in 2001 as a center of excellence, to provide advanced surgical treatment through minimal access surgery. The WLH is recognized worldwide as today reference training center in minimally access surgery. This Center of excellence provide world class health care for patients as well as education and training programs in Laparoscopic, Various Endoscopic and da Vinci Robotic Surgery. The courses include theoretical session, "Hands On" skill demonstration and demonstrations of live endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgical procedures.
WLH was established by visionary leaders who believed in simple, guiding principles. and one fundamental values form the foundation of the WLH culture: "Skilled Surgeon Safer Surgery".

Laparoscopy is direct visualization of the peritoneal cavity, and organ inside peritoneal cavity. The laparoscope is an instrument somewhat like a miniature telescope with a fiber optic system which brings light into the abdomen. It is about as big around as a fountain pen and twice as long.
An instrument to move the uterus during surgery will be placed in the vagina. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is put into the abdomen through a special needle that is inserted just below the navel. This gas helps to separate the organs inside the abdominal cavity, making it easier for the physician to see the reproductive organs during laparoscopy. The gas is removed at the end of the procedure.
Micro Laparoscopy is new minimally invasive diagnostic surgical procedure uses telescopes and instruments that are much smaller than normal. If this procedure is appropriate for your condition, smaller incisions will be made and postoperative abdominal tenderness may be reduced.
Laparoscopy (lap-a-ros-copee) is an examination of the interior of the abdomen by means of an instrument called a laparoscope (lap-a- ros-cope). A laparoscope is a small telescope-like instrument with a light on one end which is passed through a small incision below the navel. This allows the physician to view and examine the organs in the abdominal cavity.
A diagnostic laparoscopy is a procedure in which the laparoscopic surgeon uses a laparoscope, to look at the organs and tissues inside abdominal cavity.
The laparoscopic surgery is a method by which surgery is done by making small incisions on the abdominal wall and inserting the instruments through specially designed ports. The procedure will be visualized with the help of a camera, which will also be introduced through one of these ports.
In conventional surgery a long incision is made to gain entry into the abdominal cavity and operate. This result in increased post- operative pain, longer stay in hospital, delayed recovery, long and ugly scars, respiratory problems, higher chance of wound infection, higher chance of incisional hernia, delayed feeding after surgery. The incidence of all these is dramatically reduced by laparoscopic surgery.
Almost all surgeries being done in open surgery are nowadays being performed. The most common however are cholecystectomy (removal of the gall bladder), appendicectomy (removal of the appendix), tubal ligation (sterilisation), diagnostic laparoscopy, hernia repair.
Diagnostic laparoscopy and hernia repairs can be done under local anaesthesia but the other procedures will require general anaesthesia.
