Vitrectomy Surgery In Gangtok​

If you are experiencing eye pain, cloudy vision, or redness in your eyes, then it is important to get a vitrectomy surgery done as soon as possible. Vitrectomy surgery is a relatively common procedure that is used to remove the vitreous (a gel-like substance that fills the inside of your eye) and restore your vision.

There are a few things that you need to know about vitrectomy surgery before you make the decision to have it done. First, the surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and most patients can go home immediately following the procedure. Second, most patients experience minimal discomfort following vitrectomy surgery and can resume their normal activities within a few days. Third, there is a small risk of developing postoperative complications, but these are usually mild and typically resolve within a week or two.

If you are considering having vitrectomy surgery in Gangtok, then be sure to speak with your doctor about all of the benefits and risks associated with the procedure. In addition, be sure to ask about any potential discounts that may be available through our hospital referral program.

Types of Vitrectomy

Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) is the most common type of vitrectomy. It is performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid and uses a camera to remove the vitreous.

Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) uses a thin, flexible filament called a sutureless stitch to hold the retina in place while the vitreous is removed. 

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach removes the entire vitreous without disturbing the retina. These procedures are generally safer than other types of vitrectomies because they do not require an opening in the eye.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Gangtok

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Gangtok can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Gangtok varies between ₹20,000 to ₹80,000. Anterior Vitrectomy in front portion of the eye costs around 24000. Simple posterior vitrectomy involves suction / removal of the vitreous gel or blood from the back portion of the eye and costs around 40,000. However, in certain cases, Endolaser is used to burn the bleeding retinal blood vessels. This increase the cost to 50000. Similarly, if the retinal detachment is high, the surgeon might use silicone oil or gas tamponade to temporary fill in the eye and settle the retina. This further increase the cost to 60000. Below is the average cost of different type of vitrectomy procedures:
