Procedures
Appendectomy

Appendectomy is a surgical procedure in which the inflamed appendix causing abdominal pain is removed. An appendix is a pouch-like structure attached to the large intestine and is located on the lower right side of the abdomen.

An appendectomy can be done laparoscopically as well as an open procedure. Complications may arise if an appendix has burst due to inflammation, which may increase the recovery time as a drain is put in the incision for a few days after the surgery.

Colorectal Cancer ( Colon Cancer ) Treatment
  • Overconsumption of animal protein, saturated fats, and calories
  • Low dietary fibre intake
  • Overconsumption of alcohol
  • Excessive smoking
  • Family history of colorectal cancer
  • Obesity
  • Physical inactivity

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in the world. It can metastasize and spread to other body parts. Colorectal cancer is dangerous and can be life-threatening. But death rate from colorectal cancer has dropped in the recent years, thanks to advance screening techniques and better colorectal treatment options.

What is colon cancer?

Colorectal cancer is also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer. Colorectal cancer begins as an abnormal growth of cells in the inner lining of the colon or rectum. This abnormal growth is called a polyp.

Some types of polyps can change into cancer over the course of several years. But it does not mean that all polyps have the tendency to become cancerous. The chance of changing a polyp into colorectal cancer depends on the type of polyp that grows. 

Colorectal cancer can affect men and women equally. However, studies have proven that men might develop it at a younger age.

What causes colon cancer?

There is no definite cause of colorectal cancer, but old age and certain lifestyle factors can increase colorectal cancer risk. Some of these colorectal cancer risk factors include the following:

Types of Colorectal Cancer

A majority of colorectal cancers are adenocarcinoma. If you have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, there are 95 percent chances that it is an adenocarcinoma. But there are some other types of colorectal cancer such as carcinoid, gastrointestinal stromal, lymphomas, and sarcomas.

Colorectal Cancer Symptoms

There are no early signs of colorectal cancer, but once it grows, the patients may experience the following colon cancer symptoms:

  • Fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath
  • Change in bowel habits, including diarrhoea or constipation
  • Blood in stool
  • Abdominal discomforts such as cramps, bolting or pain
  • Dramatic weight loss
Hemicolectomy

The last part of the gastrointestinal system is referred as the colon and it is 5-6 cm long. It is ‘U’ shaped and it starts from the distal part of the small intestine and is connected to the rectum and anus. It absorbs the fluids, processes the metabolic waste products, and eliminates through the rectum and anus. The removal of the colon is called colectomy.

There are different types of colectomies such as complete colectomy,  right hemicolectomy, left hemicolectomy, sigmoid colectomy, and proctocolectomy. The surgical removal of the left side of the colon (descending colon) is called left hemicolectomy surgery. The surgical removal of the cecum, ascending colon, and the hepatic flexure (right side of the colon) is called as the right hemicolectomy surgery.

Some of the conditions that require complete colectomy or hemicolectomy surgery include the following:

  • Colon cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Blockage of the colon
  • Precancerous polyps
  • Hereditary polyps
  • Benign tumours
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Bowel twisting and obstruction
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Appendicitis with inflammation of the cecum
  • Right-side colonic diverticular disease (diverticulosis)

A hemicolectomy procedure can be performed as a laparoscopic or open surgery. The type of the surgery to be performed is decided by the surgeon during the evaluation and the decision depends on the age and the condition of the patient.

Sometimes the laparoscopic procedure can also be turned into open surgery, depending on the feasibility of the procedure with respect to safety and accuracy. Overall, the following parameters decide whether a laparoscopic or an open surgical procedure will be performed:

  • Age
  • Diagnosis
  • Medical history
  • Personal preference
Inguinal Hernia Repair

Inguinal hernia is a condition that occurs when intestinal tissues or fatty tissues push through the weaker section of the abdominal wall, through the inguinal canals. The inguinal canals are situated both sides of the anterior abdominal wall, on either side of the midline. Located just above the inguinal ligaments, the inguinal canal is larger as well as more prominent among the men compared to women. It serves an important purpose, as it is associated in the conveyance of the spermatic chords in male as well as the uterine ligament (round) in the females. When a part of the abdominal wall gets weak, the tissues in the region protrude through the abdominal wall into the canal, causing extreme pain and discomfort. This can be felt as a lump in the lower abdominal area in most people, however, may also get unnoticed in candidates dealing with obesity. In such cases, inguinal hernia repair becomes the need of the hour, which can be achieved by surgical operations.

Inguinal hernia can be very painful and may interfere with daily activities to a great extent. Though medications like painkillers may help to cope up with the pain, the best treatment to cure hernia is through surgical procedures. Inguinal hernia repair can be done via surgical methods as the opening can not be sealed with medications and therapies, and needs to be thoroughly sealed. Thus, the candidate is suggested and requested to prepare for surgery. However, pre-surgery, through evaluation of the candidate is done in order to diagnose any kind of chronic or terminal disease which shall complicates the surgery further. Inguinal hernia repair is essential as if the protruding tissues are not retracted, it will keep forcing the opening in the abdominal and worsening the condition.

Laparoscopic Gall Bladder Removal

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal is a minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions and specialized tools are used to remove a diseased or inflamed gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small organ located in the right upper abdomen below the liver. It helps in the storage of bile which is used to breakdown food during digestion. Laparoscopic gallbladder removal is a minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions and specialized tools are used to remove a diseased or inflamed gallbladder. The main reason for having a gallbladder removed is the presence of gallstones and the complications it might cause. Other reason for the surgery might include biliary dyskinesia, cholecystitis, pancreatitis. It is called as laparoscopic cholecystectomy and it carries only a small risk of complications.

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
Whipple's Procedure

Among all the forms of common cancers, it has been found that pancreatic cancer has the poorest prognoses. This reason can be attributed to the cancer growing and spreading long before it starts showing any visible symptoms. A survey revealed that only 6 percent patients survive for more than five years after its diagnosis. For some patients, a very complicated surgery known as the Whipple's procedure will be able to extend life and can be counted as a potential cure. After undergoing Whipple's surgery the five-year rate of survival can be increased to 25 percent.

People who are suffering from pancreatic cancer are eligible for the Whipple’s operation. People who have tumors confined to the pancreatic head and the blood vessels, lungs, and livers or the abdominal cavities are still not affected and are recommended to undergo this procedure after intensive testing and evaluation.

People with benign tumors are also recommended to undergo the procedure. For patients who are suffering metastasis, this procedure is not recommended. Cancer in the ampulla, region where the pancreatic duct and bile duct enter, can also be treated.

Whipple's Operation

Whipple's operation is conducted in the head of the pancreas. During the surgery, a segment of the duodenum, bile duct, and the gallbladder is removed. In some cases, a portion of the stomach may also be removed. After these segments are removed, the remaining pancreas, bile duct, and even portion of the intestine will be sutured back to the main intestine to direct the secretion of the gastrointestinal segment into the gut. The Whipple& procedure for pancreatic cancer is long and has several complications associated with it.

A doctor may recommend you to undergo Whipple operation for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Pancreatic cysts, tumors, and cancer
  • Ampullary cancer
  • Pancreatitis
  • Neuroendocrine tumors
  • Cancer of the bile duct
  • Small bowel cancer
  • Traumatic injury to the small intestine or the pancreas
  • Tumor of disorders of the bile ducts, pancreas, or duodenum
