Common laparoscopic surgeries performed by Dr Malladi include laparoscopic surgeries for diseases including abdominal pain, appendicitis, gallstones, hernia, intestinal diseases, gastro-oesophageal reflux, diaphragmatic hernia, splenic disorders, liver cysts etc.
Dr Malladi has taken great interest in developing laparoscopic surgery for hernia – which is a common problem. The advantages of laparoscopic hernia surgery have helped many patients to return to their work earlier. Beyond the frequent inguinal hernia repairs that he carries out in a breeze, he has performed surgeries for incisional, ventral, femoral, para-oesophageal hernias presenting with various complications as well.
Laparoscopic surgery offers the advantage of faster recovery and shorter hospital stay. Dr Malladi believes that this advantage offers early resumption of daily activities and early return to work. His mantra about Laparoscopic Surgery is “Return to Life, Quickly”.
