Surgeons of the regional clinical hospital No. 2 in Cherepovets conducted the first endoscopic operation in the region to remove the spleen to a patient with blood disease. The operation lasted an hour and a half.
“Patients tolerate such operations quite easily. Rehabilitation and rehabilitation go much faster, in comparison with the traditional intervention, – said the surgeon Roman Ikonnikov. – Our patient was already at home on the sixth day after the operation, and earlier in the hospital they spent two weeks each. Important and cosmetic effect – on the skin are barely noticeable traces the size of about two centimeters. ”
A short period of rehabilitation and the absence of large scars help patients to decide quickly on this type of surgery, doctors say.
“The introduction of modern technologies into practice brings the region’s medicine to a new level,” said Deputy Head Physician for Surgical Care of Regional Hospital No. 2 Sergei Popov. – Now patients will not have to leave the region to get quality treatment. Laparoscopic splenectomy is performed free of charge, within the framework of MHI and is included in the compulsory list of operations in our hospital. ”
