Dr. Lluís Cecchini is an Urology specialist and member of Centro Médico Teknon medical corp (Barcelona, Spain).
Dr. Cecchini is also a pioneer in developing laparoscopical techniques applicated in the field of Urology in Spain.
Laparoscopy has revolutioned surgery in a way never before seen. Laparoscopical approach has adopted most traditional surgical techniques to turn them into less invasive procedures reverting into clear benefit to the patient. Almost all procedures can be undergone by a laparoscopic approach.
This new way of surgery works with image magnification and allows for great precision, similar as working through magnification lenses. The fact of proceeding through small skin orifices (ports) makes the surgical wound much smaller, thus reducing postoperative pain. On the other hand, accurate bleeding control reduces transfusion risk to the minimum.
It is a revolution in the way of understanding surgery that allows for a refinement in the different surgical procedures more than simply avoiding traditional great wounds. This approach allows offering the most efficient treatment to cure oncological diseases –surgery- minimizing collateral lesions related to any kind of surgery.
