Abstract

Adoption of Laparoscopy in a Rural Medical College Hospital: Minimal Access Surgery for Masses a Reality

Since the early 1970’s, pioneers in India have set mile stones in laparoscopy. Dr. F.P. Antia, then Physician at the KEM Hospital, Mumbai performed a diagnostic laparoscopy on a patient with cirrhosis using a Nitze-type telescope and a feeble filament light bulb and atmospheric air instilled with the help of a sigmoidoscope pump for induction of pneumoperitoneum. In time many of these hospitals became specialised high volume centers based in major cities.
