Mr Asit Arora operates in a minimally-invasive way whenever it is appropriate for his patients. Minimally-invasive or ‘keyhole’ surgery offers patients smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, fewer complications and a quicker recovery than traditional open operations.
Mr Arora pioneered robotic ENT surgery in the UK. At LIPS, he operates using revolutionary robotic technology to support his surgical skills. The innovative system ensures greater precision and accuracy combined and also improves recovery times.
