Our Expertise Areas 

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is a procedure that modifies your digestive system to help you lose weight. This surgery is indicated if you are unable to lose weight through exercise and nutrition or are experiencing major health problems due to your excess weight. This surgery will help you lose weight by limiting your food intake and the amount of nutrients you can absorb.

These procedures aim to alter the stomach and intestines to treat obesity and other disorders. The surgery may cause the stomach to shrink, and a part of the intestine to be bypassed. This leads to a decrease in food intake and a shift in how the body absorbs food for energy, reducing hunger and more fullness. These procedures help the body acquire and maintain a healthy weight.

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopy has become one of the most popular minimally invasive surgery for abdominal, intestinal, and pelvic treatments in the last decade. Laparoscopy, also known as keyhole surgery, allows a surgeon to view the inside of the abdomen (tummy) and pelvis without making large skin incisions. Thanks to this modern surgical technology, the surgeon has more control and vision during the procedure.

Colorectal Surgery

The use of surgical procedures for the diagnosis and/or treatment of problems and anomalies of the anus, rectum, and colon is known as colorectal surgery. These conditions include malignancies of the colon and rectum, fecal incontinence, and hemorrhoids.

Dr. Samrat Jankar, a renowned laparoscopic and colorectal surgeon in Pune is highly skilled in procedures like laparoscopic hemicolectomy, laparoscopic anterior resection, laparoscopic APR, laparoscopic total proctocolectomy, laparoscopic rectopexy, laparoscopic diverticulitis surgery, stapler haemorrhoidectomy, laser proctology, and complex fistula surgery such as LIFT.

Laser Proctology

Laser proctology is the surgical treatment of the colon, rectum, and anus conditions using laser techniques. A laser is a light beam of high energy used to burn or cut the abnormality, which was the purpose of the surgery. Both women and men are increasingly undergoing this procedure to address piles. Hemorrhoids, fissures, fistulas, pilonidal sinus, and polyps are common conditions treated with laser proctology.

Laser treatments are now far more advanced and safer; they leave no scars, are bloodless, and are far less unpleasant. They also have lesser side effects.
