In June 2021, Dr. Dhaval Mangukiya with his team of Gastro-Intestinal Surgeons at SIDS Hospital, Surat conducted a unique Laparoscopic Surgery Workshop that was hosted live on digital platforms. This LiveSurgical Workshop was attended by 900+ surgeons across the world through webinars. In the workshop, there was a live telecast of the laparoscopic surgery technique performed for pancreatic cancer, a technique which is currently being performed by very few centres across the world.
The surgery while being performed was also hosted live through a webinar platform which was a big achievement for the surgical team & the healthcare industry.
A total of 10 surgeries in a single day were performed and demonstrated during the workshop , which was keenly observed by 900+ surgeons across the world.
We performed Laparoscopic Whipple's Surgery during the workshop, which is technically one of the most difficult surgeries in the field of laparoscopy & hosting it live was another difficult task that was successfully done during the surgery. The surgery was successful & the patient also got cured after the surgery with proper care & medications.
Another major accomplishment for Dr. Dhaval Mangukiya & his team was to finish this surgery in a record time of around 5 hours. Because when Whipple's surgery is done through open surgery technique, then this type of surgery takes at least 6-8 hours to complete, and if it is done by laparoscopic technique then it would take around 12-14 hours to complete the surgery.
The other surgeries we performed were laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic cancer surgery, pancreatic cancer surgery, liver cancer surgery & intestinal cancer surgery.
The workshop helped surgeons to refine their surgical skills & knowledge under the expert guidance of Dr. Dhaval Mangukiya. The Live- Workshop added immense value to the healthcare industry. Digital Technology once again proved a boon for the medical sector where knowledge, skill & techniques could be shared among healthcare professionals across the globe.
