Less invasive, more effective.


Minimal Access Surgeries, more often known as Keyhole Surgeries are surgeries performed using long, thin instruments inserted into the body through small incisions rather than the traditional long incision used in open surgery thus leading to much less scarring, both internally and externally, and better cosmetic results.

LIMA - Lifeline Institute of Minimal Access is an initiative of Dr. J.S Rajkumar who is well known as a perceptive healthcare leader with a proven track record in performing keyhole surgeries. By means of LIMA, he has been experimental in building strong and capable teams with advanced keyhole surgery skills.

LIMA is known to perform innovative minimal access surgery procedures that are carefully customized and infused with technology. LIMA focuses on giving the advantage of modern surgical care for their patients with quick recovery time, allowing them to get back to routine life with a short hospital stay.

Advantages of minimal access surgery over open surgery

Keyhole surgery offers many advantages over the traditional open surgery.

A few of them are:

  • Shorter recovery
  • Quick return to normal lives even after major operations
  • Less discomfort after surgery due to use of tiny incisions
  • Reduced risk of wound infection
  • Better cosmetic outcome.
  • Video magnification allows more accurate diagnosis and a more precise surgery.
  • Video magnification of tissues also allows detection and control of small bleeding vessels minimizing the risk of hemorrhage during or after the surgery.
