Today’s surgical approach is patient centric, and surgeons strive to provide their patients with the best possible outcome after surgery. They endeavour to achieve this by maintaining optimum balance between resource utilization and adoption of the latest technical evolution. Thus, the surgical technique is always an ever-evolving space. Women Health Care is one such field where constant surgical technique and device development is experimented and practiced.


One such technique by a Hyderabad Surgeon practicing at CARE Hospitals Banjara Hills, Dr. Vipin Goel is recently published in International Surgery Journal. This technique is named after Dr. Goel himself and is known as technique of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy for Endometrium Carcinoma The laparoscopic hysterectomy is the preferred choice in performing a hysterectomy in endometrial carcinoma. Several different techniques for performing laparoscopic hysterectomies are published and practiced, though most of these procedures are like each other the difference in Dr. Goel’s technique lies in a sequence of ten operative steps performed i.e initiations of dissection to completion of surgery.


The sequence of the steps and the distinct way it is carried out without the use of vaginal manipulators or Myoma screws make this technique unique. This is of special interest in cancer surgery as the use of various vaginal manipulators to manipulate the uterus for traction enter cancer cells present in the endometrial cavity; it can lead to tissue breakup and bleeding. This may cause cancer cells to enter systemic circulation and may spread the malignancy.


This technique has been standardized to decrease the complication rate to a minimum. The main quality of this technique is the emphasis given on the identification of the anatomical parts. No structures are amputated till proper identification of them. The technique dwells on the separation of the ureter, bladder, rectum in the safe plane before performing a hysterectomy. The safety perspective is addressed very appropriately in Dr. Goel’s technique.


Every surgeon performs the operation according to the surgeon comfort. These variations can have their merits and demerits. The technique described Dr. Goel is not completely novel, but it has fixed operative steps and their sequence makes it unique. This Published paper on Dr. Goel’s technique is first such representation of laparoscopic hysterectomy in a stepwise manner to enhance surgical outcome for patients.
