Message from Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar

I welcome you to Galaxy Laparoscopic Training Centre, a premier Institute for Advanced Laparoscopy. Laparoscopy originated way back in the 1980’s and was mainly used as a diagnostic modality .It has, over a period of years, evolved into a primary modality for surgery. All the conventional open surgeries are now being performed by Laparoscopy /Key-hole surgeries. With the advancement in optics and energy sources, and with increasing abilities of surgeons, an increasing number of these surgeries are being performed and the feasibility has been proven in all tumors.”

We, at Galaxy Care Hospital were one of the first to recognize the advantages of laparoscopy in Cancer surgery. Thus since 2003, we have performed all types of Cancer surgeries laparoscopically. The pioneering work has been in Oesophagical cancer & cervical cancers. In fact, the Lap Radical Hysterectomy for cancer cervix, goes by the name of our city and is known as the “PUNE TECHNIQUE”.

We have also started performing NOTES and single port surgeries and we were the first to do single port radical Hysterectomy.

At Galaxy Care Hospital, Pune we have acquired the Robot for all types of Robotic Cancer surgeries
