Incision-free surgery

Press/Media: Profile/Interview


Incision-free surgery is a new paradigm for surgical intervention. While minimally invasive options have widely replaced the open operations of the past, these procedures still require a scalpel and incision to give the surgeon access. The wounds created can prolong recovery, are susceptible to infection, cause pain and cause cosmetic changes.
New operations, including major gastrointestinal operations can now be performed with no incision at all, using new techniques known as “natural orifice” surgery. Dr Geoffrey Kohn is a Cabrini surgeon specialising in disorders of the oesophagus   and stomach. In this area there are two conditions which he treats via incision-free surgery – achalasia and gastroparesis.
