 ACHIEVEMENTS & AWARDS

Invitation by AMERICAN Society of Colon Rectum Surgeons (ASCRS) to give a lecture on "PERFACT Procedure to treat Anal Fistula"                                                                                               May 2014

Dr Garg has been invited by AMERICAN Society of Colon Rectum Surgeons (ASCRS), the biggest society of Colon & Rectal Surgeons in the world to give a lecture on PERFACT procedure on May 21, 2014. Dr Garg is credited with the invention of this new operation. This is the latest and a next generation in operations to cure Fistula-in-ano. It is associated with a small cut, minimal pain and NO risk of incontinence (losing the control over motions). The required hospital stay is minimal (less than a day) and the patient resumes all his/her normal activities from the next day of operation (the patient walks more than 5 kilometers, climb stairs, does jogging and can drive car from the next day of operation). The success rate (cure rate) of this procedure is also higher than other newer methods like VAAFT, LIFT, Anal Fistula PLUG or GLUE.

STUDIES & NAME QUOTED IN WIKIPEDIA

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_fissure

"Though Lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS) is considered safe on short term basis, there are concern about its long term safety. Pankaj Garg et al recently published a systematic review and meta-analysis in which they analyzed the long term continence disturbance two years after the LIS procedure. They found the incidence of long term continence disturbance to be 14%. So caution and careful patient selection is needed before going in for LIS."

Garg P, Garg M, Menon GR (March 2013). "Long-term continence disturbance after lateral internal sphincterotomy for chronic anal fissure: a systematic review and meta-analysis". Colorectal Dis 15 (3): e104–17. doi:10.1111/codi.12108. PMID 23320551.

2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_fistula

"Fistula plug involves plugging the fistula with a device made from small intestinal submucosa. The fistula plug is positioned from the inside of the anus with suture. According to some sources, the success rate with this method is as high as 80%. As opposed to the staged operations, which may require multiple hospitalizations, the fistula plug procedure requires hospitalization for only about 24 hours. Currently, there are two different anal fistula plugs cleared by the FDA for treating ano-rectal fistulas in the United States. This treatment option does not carry any risk of bowel incontinence. In the systematic review published by Dr Pankaj Garg, the success rate of the fistula plug is 65-75%."

Garg P, Song J, Bhatia A, Kalia H, Menon GR (October 2010). "The efficacy of anal fistula plug in fistula-in-ano: a systematic review". Colorectal Dis 12 (10): 965–70. doi:10.1111/j.1463-1318.2009.01933.x. PMID 19438881.

3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laparoscopic_cholecystectomy#Laparoscopic_surgery

"Recently, this procedure is performed through a single incision in the patient's umbilicus. This advanced technique is called Laparoendoscopic Single Site Surgery or "LESS" or Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery or "SILS". In this procedure, instead of making 3-4 four small different cuts (incisions), a single cut (incision) is made through the navel (umbilicus). Through this cut, specialized rotaculating instruments (straight instruments which can be bent once inside the tummy)are inserted to do the operation. The advantage of LESS / SILS operation is that the number of cuts are further reduced to one and this cut is also not visible after the operation is done as it is hidden inside the navel. A meta-analysis published by Pankaj Garg et al comparing conventional laparoscopic cholecystecomy to SILS Cholecystectomy demonstrated that SILS does have a cosmetic benefit over convention four-hole laparoscopic cholecystectomy while having no advantage in postoperative pain and hospital stay."

Garg P, Thakur JD, Garg M, Menon GR (August 2012). "Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy vs. conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials". Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgey 16 (8): 1618–28. doi:10.1007/s11605-012-1906-6. PMID 22580841.
