Two advanced technical procedures were showcased (via live surgery) as a part of the program so that this can be transferred into a better patient community service.

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that’s been widely provided to patients. However, a minimally advanced procedure which is a new advancement in the field of surgery called the hybrid mini-lap technique can be performed on patients who require surgery such as a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and other laparoscopic procedures. This surgery is important as it leaves fewer to no scars on the patient and has a better outcome.
