Grant C S, Al-Kindy N, Machado N, Daar A S


Laparoscopic surgery, which gained prominence in the late 1980s, became an established surgical practice in Sultan Qaboos University Hospital (SQUH) in 1992. Drawing on available literature and the authors’ own experiences, this paper gives an overview of various laparoscopic surgical techniques currently available at SQUH, including laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic appendicectomy, diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic varicocoelectomy. It also highlights the role of surgical endoscopic training centre at SQUH, which provides a laboratory setting for surgical trainees and practising physicians. Laparoscopic surgery at SQUH would continue to evolve spurred on by surgical innovations and advances in technology.
