Medical Education Exhibition : Let's Discover Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) "Less Pain, More Gains" in Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur !


Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is still a developing practise. As technology improves, the instruments are becoming more versatile and dexterous. Surgeons are becoming more skilled as the training methods advance. All these factors point to MIS becoming the new default surgical option where possible. As far as mouse mommy knows that minimally invasive surgery(MIS) widely use in gynaecology such as laparoscopy. An eye opening that MIS could be done in many different area of surgery. Another choice of option for patients.  


To give the public the behind the scenes look of MIS, Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur is currently hosting an exhibition in partnership with Johnson-Johnson on MIS to raise awareness about the procedure. Even though it has been available in Malaysia for around 30 years, it is still not widely discussed as an option.





Surgery is scary. There is no denying it. With every surgery comes a certain amount of risk. On top of the pain, there is the worry that accompanies going under the knife, the cost, and significant recovery time. In the face of this worry, modern medicine is evolving at rapid rates and changing the way we look at surgery. Some of these worries are beginning to look like worries of the past. An educational chance for us as public to get to know more about MIS, how is it to be done?


Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur is on a mission to pull back the curtain that shrouds surgery. By equipping patients with the knowledge they need to prepare for and choose their surgical procedure, the hope is that fewer people fear surgery and more begin to look to it as a practical solution rather than a last resort.



Some of the common procedures that can be executed via MIS are endoscopies, laparoscopies (around the abdomen and pelvis), and arthroscopies (around bones and joints).

Dr. Paul Selvindoss (colorectal & laparoscopic surgeon) and Dr.Charanjeet Singh (orthopaedic surgeon), both stationed at Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur, are a couple of the most talented practitioners of MIS in Malaysia. During an intimate session with the media, these MIS professionals shared their personal takes on MIS.



“There’s a lot of training and specialised practice that goes into preparing for minimally invasive surgery. It’s very different from open surgery. Our view of the area we’re operating on is only available via the inserted scope and our access is limited by the tools and small incisions,” Dr. Paul explained.




“It’s all worth it for the comfort of our patients. MIS patients enjoy quicker healing times and have much smaller scars. Of course, it’s not always an option – it is only appropriate for certain procedures, but we do encourage our patients to consider it because of the significant benefits,” added Dr. Charanjeet.



Sometimes, surgical procedures are optional – not entirely necessary, but a way to nip a problem in the bud. However, in many cases, surgical procedures are a last resort and can mean the difference between life and death. Even if you cannot avoid the surgery altogether, there are steps you can take to give yourself the best chance of a speedy, complication-free recovery.
