Vitrectomy Surgery In India​

Vitrectomy surgery is a very common procedure in India, and it is also one of the most commonly performed surgeries in India.

Vitrectomy surgery is a surgical procedure used to remove Clear-Cell Sarcoma (CCS) or other types of cancerous cells from the eye. The surgery is performed by removing the entire vitreous body – the gel that fills the inside of the eye – using a special tool called a vitrectomy microscope.

After the vitreous body is removed, the surgeon can see and remove any cancerous cells that are present. This procedure is often successful in removing all traces of CCS or other types of cancerous cells from an eye.

Vitrectomy surgery is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed with minimal discomfort. Most patients experience minimal pain and no lasting side effects following vitrectomy surgery. Patients who are candidates for vitrectomy surgery should discuss their eligibility with their doctor prior to making an appointment.

Types of Vitrectomy

Vitrectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove the vitreous body and associated fluids from an eye. There are three main types of vitrectomy: pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV), and endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach.

PPV is the most common type of vitrectomy, performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid.

TSV is a less invasive option that uses suction to remove the vitreous body and fluid without the use of stitches. The advantage of TSV is that it can be done in an outpatient setting.

Epiretinal surgery, also known as endoscopic subretinal surgery (ESS), is an increasingly common type of vitrectomy that uses an endoscope to enter the eye through the uvea (the middle layer of the eyeball). ESS is considered more complicated than other types of vitrectomy, but it has some advantages, including reduced pain and faster recovery time.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In India

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in India can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in India 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 55,000. 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:
