The Department of General Surgery at Max Health hospitals also extent its services for the active management of diabetic foot diseases.
Colectomy is a surgical procedure that is used to remove a part of or the entire large intestine or colon. It is usually recommended in patients with severe gastrointestinal distress from blocked colon or colon obstructions, colorectal cancers, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease etc. In these cases, it becomes important to remove a part of the colon and restructure the large intestine or remove it in its entirety.
The introduction of the state-of-the-art laparoscopic technology at the Max health hospital has made us one of the top colectomy surgery hospitals in India. Not only does the surgeon get to perform the surgery guided by the best imaging techniques, the patients also have a shorter hospital stay and recovery time.
Cancer developing in the urinary bladder is generally treated by cystectomy surgery. The surgical procedure involves the partial or complete removal of the urinary bladder. In case of complete removal of the urinary bladder, it is likely that a few other organs such as seminal vesicles and the prostrate in men and ovaries and the uterus in women, may also be removed. The introduction of laparoscopic technology in numerous specialities has helped in precision of surgical methods and shorter recovery times for the patients.
Laparoscopic radical cystoprostatectomy (LRC) is now a very promising surgical option. Robot assisted laparoscopic cystectomy takes this one step further to make a complex surgery into a successful one.
Gastric bypass is one of the common types of bariatric surgeries which involve creating a smaller stomach or shrinking the size of the stomach. It also involves a restructuring of the digestive system by bypassing the first section of the small intestine. Gastric bypass is often recommended to patients who are extremely obese and have been unsuccessful in losing weight through usual diet and exercise routines. It is also recommended if the excess weight is causing major health issues such as heart diseases, hypertension, stroke etc. To be qualified for a gastric bypass one must undergo extensive medical screening. It is also important to make a long-term commitment to a healthy lifestyle and follow-up monitoring to avoid complications from the procedure.
A hernia is a condition when some internal organ (usually in the abdomen, around the umbilical or femoral areas, or the groin region) ruptures a weak spot in the muscle wall and bursts out. While in most cases a hernia causes pain and discomfort, in some cases it could turn life threatening if left without medical attention. In a hernia surgery, the tissue and muscle wall are strengthened with the help of a mesh designed to hold in the internal organs.
We at Care Hospitals are equipped with the state-of-the-art technology and expert surgeons who are experienced in hernia repair through laparoscopic surgery. This is the reason we are among the leading hernia surgery hospitals in Hyderabad. Keyhole surgery of hernia requires minimal downtime and short recovery duration.
Gall bladder is a pouch like organ that stores the bile secreted by the liver and supplies this for effective metabolism of food. Sometimes there are cholesterol stones or bilirubin pigment stones that form in the gall bladder and these cause poor metabolism, pain, and discomfort. In such cases, doctors recommend removal of the gall bladder through a surgery called the cholecystectomy. The introduction of laparoscopic surgery has made this a quick procedure. Three or four small incisions are made around the gall bladder (instead of a long one made in an open surgery). A laparoscope fitted with a camera is inserted and the internal organs are monitored real time. The gall bladder is then removed. In case of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, the patient may return home the same or the following day and the recovery period is a much shorter.
Laparoscopic surgery, also referred to as keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive surgery technique that is now popularly used across specialities. Initially, this technique was used to perform gall bladder removal and gynaecological surgeries. But today, laparoscopic surgery in India is a preferred alternative to open surgeries for a number of reasons. It involves small incision cuts and the insertion of a thin tube called laparoscope. The tube is fitted with a camera allowing high resolution visuals of the internal organs. Since the incisions are small, the healing is faster and the recovery time significantly lesser than regular open surgery.
At Max health hospital, which is among the top laparoscopic surgery hospitals in India, the procedure is done by expert surgeons and hence patients experience less discomfort and pain.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that helps in removal of fat from targeted areas of the body. It is also referred as body contouring since the process uses a suction technique to remove stubborn fat mostly from the abdomen, the hips and thighs, and the buttocks. While largely thought of as a cosmetic procedure rather than recommended weight loss technique, liposuction is safe and very effective in removing fat from areas which do not respond easily to diet and exercise.
Liposuction is a general term that refers to four different techniques of fat removal –
Liposuction may be performed under general or local anaesthesia. Like any other surgery the patient’s vitals will be monitored during and after the procedure. The patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few days and complete recovery may require a few weeks.
The main function of the gall bladder is to store the bile produced by the liver and to supply it for the metabolic function of the body. Cholesterol stones and bilirubin pigment stones sometimes form in the gall bladder causing pain, discomfort, and metabolic distress. In these cases, it is necessary to go in for an open cholecystectomy surgery or opt for the laparoscopic mode. Many surgeons prefer an open cholecystectomy surgery in which a long incision is made in the abdomen and the gall bladder is removed. The patient is administered general anaesthesia during the procedure. The patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few days following the surgery.
Piles or Haemorrhoids is a painful condition in which swollen tissue containing inflamed blood vessels protrude from inside the anus and rectum. These can cause extreme discomfort during defecation, walking, sitting, and even lying down. When medication fails to relieve a patient of the discomfort and pain, doctors routinely recommend haemorrhoidectomy or piles surgery. The use of laparoscopic modes of treatment is increasingly popular, both with patients and surgeons, for the precision and quick recovery time they offer.
At Max health hospital, we have an team of surgeons experienced in laparoscopic management of piles and anorectal disease who offer the best of medical care and technology.
Splenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removal of the spleen, an organ located in the left side of the upper abdomen. The spleen plays an important role in the body’s defence and immunity mechanism but sometimes due to trauma (from accidents) or due to diseases, a part or the entire spleen may need to be removed. In such cases, a splenectomy is performed. Traditionally, this was performed as an open surgery but the evolution of laparoscopic technology has made it a much more efficient procedure.
Laparoscopic splenectomy is a minimally invasive surgery, and usually involves lesser discomfort and a faster recovery duration when compare to open surgery. This, however, may not be the right choice for every patient. Speak to our expert doctors at Care Hospitals to understand if you are better suited to open splenectomy or laparoscopic surgery.
Weight loss surgery or gastric banding can be a life saver for people suffering from morbid to extreme obesity and allied complications. In this procedure, the surgeon will use one of the three techniques to reduce the size of the stomach. These techniques could be –
The main aim of these techniques is to prevent the stomach from extending to its full size, restricting the intake of food. It must be noted that a weight loss surgery (gastric banding) is an extreme measure recommended when a person is unable to lose weight by regular diet and exercise. It requires a long term commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle including a restricted diet and a rigorous exercise regimen. The person undergoing the surgery will also need to undergo monitoring by the doctor on a long term basis.
