|Dear Dr. Hemlata
We have one of the largest HD laparoscopic lab of the World with 25 HD working station. We will also maintain the social distancing in the lecture theatre as our auditorium has a capacity of 100 doctors and keeping COVID 19 in mind we are taking admission of only 20 doctors in one batch so in lecture theatre also we will maintain social distancing.
In our operation theatre, we are keeping the following precautions.
1. Use of Laparoscopic Smoke Evacuation System
2. Disposable surgical caps
3. Medical protective mask (N95)
4. Surgical shield uniform
5. Disposable medical protective uniform
6. Disposable latex gloves
7. Full-face respiratory protective devices
8. Powered air-purifying respirator
Laparoscopic surgery during a pandemic comes with multiple threats for the surgical team. Therefore, it is crucial to take measures for the safeguard of colleagues, family, and friends. Although these measures are going to increase the cost of surgery for the well being of health professionals, this is necessary.
