General surgeries available at Sahyadri Hospital
We aid our patients with all types of diseases requiring laparoscopy surgeries. We also make sure to provide a broad spectrum of services to cure many problems in people. The different types of surgeries we offer at Sahyadri Hospital are:
Our well-versed surgeons mainly perform a cholecystectomy to treat conditions of gallbladders like gallstones and other complications. The doctor will usually suggest you go through the surgery if there are gallstones in your bile duct or gallbladder. S/He may also suggest surgery in conditions of gallbladder inflammation, pancreas inflammation because of gallstones or the occurrence of large gallbladder polyps.
In this type of surgical procedure, the doctor will remove the gallbladder that lies just below your liver and the upper right corner of your abdomen. The main function of the gall bladder is to release and store bile juice that helps digest the food. It is a very common surgery where there is no kind of risk involved. In fact, most patients are able to go back home the same day they undergo surgery.
Appendectomy is another type of surgery that we offer at Sahyadri Hospital. It is mainly an emergency surgery that helps treat condition relating to appendicitis. Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix. So when the appendix becomes inflamed and swells up, the bacteria start to multiply, causing pus.
Due to the formation of pus, patients go through extreme abdominal pain, and the infection starts spreading in the lower right corner of the abdomen too. Other symptoms that you may experience include vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. It becomes necessary to take treatment under such conditions; otherwise, it can become a life-threatening disease.
People go through the surgery of splenectomy to get rid of their spleen. It is an important part of the human system. It acts as the defence system of the body. The organ contains white blood cell, which helps destroy bacteria and fight from all the disease-causing bacteria. Its main job is to filter red blood and remove old ones from getting circulated in the body.
When the doctor removes only one of the spleen, it is called a partial splenectomy. Once the spleen is removed, it does not regenerate like other organs, including the liver. The doctor may suggest you go through the surgery when experiencing a ruptured spleen and it’s under the threat of spleen opening up anytime, causing a life-threatening situation.
We at Sahyadri Hospital also carry out nephrectomy to cure our patients of kidney cancer. Our highly trained doctors remove kidney which has cancer or any other injuries or disease in the surgery. Nephrectomy is also performed in conditions when a healthy person wants to donate his/her kidney to a person for transplantation.
There are two types of nephrectomy that you can go through partial and radical. In partial nephrectomy, only the disease-causing kidney is removed, whereas, in radical nephrectomy, the entire kidney, along with the bladder, is removed.
In this type of surgery, our highly experienced doctors remove either one or both the adrenal glands. The main function of adrenal glands is to produce hormones that regulate blood pressure, immune system, metabolism, blood sugar and other essential function.
The doctor may suggest you go through adrenalectomy in case your adrenal glands have grown non-cancerous tumour and have been releasing too many hormones. It may also be recommended if the tumour is cancerous.
The doctors perform thymectomy intending to remove the source producing abnormal antibodies giving rise to various diseases. In operation, the doctors remove the thymus gland when they find that thymoma are present in the thymus.
There are mainly three processes that the doctor may adopt in thymectomy. These are transcervical, where they make a small neck incision, the transternal through the breast bone and the transthoracic through both sides of the chest.
- Colorectal Surgery
Many people suffer colorectal cancer every year; it has become the third most common type of cancer in men and women. In such a case, the people may be required to go through colorectal surgery. It is performed to remove the tumour. The different surgery you can opt for includes local excision, polypectomy, laparoscopic surgery, and resection.
Fundoplication is another type of surgery that our specialist may suggest you go through in case of severe gastroesophageal conditions. If you are suffering from GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, the doctor will attach a part of your stomach to your lower esophageal sphincter, which further helps in reducing acid reflux.
However, going through the surgery does not mean you can replace the other control ways of GERD. Even after going through the surgery, you have to make lifestyle and dietary changes to adapt to healthy living. The doctor mainly adopts to this treatment option when other less invasive treatment does not show desired results.
If you are going through a hernia problem, then its most probable to treat from surgery only. There are three surgery option available to our patients: laparoscopic repair, open repair and robotic repair. Our multidisciplinary team of professional carry out this surgery in case of three conditions. First, if the intestine tissues have struck in the abdomen walls, it is very important to perform surgery. This is because if left untreated, it may get strangulated, causing a blockage in blood supply.
You may also require surgery if there is extreme pain and discomfort in the hernia. Third, if the hernia has strangulated, causing permanent damage and calling for a surgical emergency. If you do not cure it immediately, there is a high chance your intestine will die, and you will become seriously ill.
- Obesity surgery
Obesity surgery includes gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries that help to reduce your weight. This treatment also involves making changes to your lifestyle and diet plan to encourage weight loss. It is mainly recommended by the doctors when there is no positive results of the exercise and diet plan set for you.
Surgery may also be recommended if you are going through a serious health issue that does not allow your body to reduce weight. Some of the surgery treatment reduces weight by limiting the capacity you can eat. At the same time, other process limits the ability of the body to absorb nutrients. However, going through the surgery does not mean you can ignore diet and exercise.
In this type of surgery, the specialist removes an embolus from the patients’ artery or vein. An embolus is a part from where the blood clot can break free. If left untreated, it travels through the body’s bloodstream and causes blockages in certain areas. When the embolus reaches the vein of lung areas, it causes a blockage, not allowing blood to pass into the lung. However, if the embolus reaches your brain, it can cause a stroke.
Thoracoscopy is a process that our specialist undertakes to view the insides of the chest, but outside the lungs. To perform this procedure, the doctor uses a thin and flexible tube with an attached light and small video camera known as a thoracoscope. It shows every part of the internal organ in the monitor. The doctors may follow this procedure in case they want to carry out video-assisted thoracic surgery. It helps the specialist to carry out incision safely.
Endoscopy is another type of process in which a long thin tube is inserted into the body to view the internal organs or tissue that requires assessment. It is also important to carry out this process of imaging to help perform minor surgeries.
