Ganderbal, Nov 10: For the first time, doctors performed MIPH surgery in SDH Kangan in this central Kashmir's Ganderbal district.
A team of doctors including Dr Faroze Khan Consultant Surgeon, Dr Masarat and Dr Aabida consultant anaesthesia along with paramedical staff Farooq Ahmed, Gowhar, Showkat, Hilal , Ameena, Yakoob and Mushtaq performed MIPH surgery for grade 4 haemorrhoids in a female patient from Wussan Kangan.
“In this technique, neither the anal mucosa and nor the hemorrhoidal tissue is excised. In this procedure ring of rectal tissue, proximal to the dentate line is excised using a stapler device which not only cuts the ring of rectal tissue but also staples it in the same go. This minimally invasive procedure has far better results as compared to conventional open surgery,” Dr Faroze told Rising Kashmir.
He added, “During surgery, there is minimal blood loss and much lesser surgical dissection and handling of tissue, while in post-operative period, the patient has almost no pain, recovery is fast and there is less recurrence. The patient can walk and start doing normal activities within 2 to 3 days.”
