Laparoscopic Surgeon Varanasi

learn to take care of your surgical incisions

Laparoscopic surgery has always been considered the most advantageous and fruitful over general surgery. Minimally-invasive surgeries have supplanted traditional open surgeries which required cutting open the entire patient’s body to treat minor problems. Keyhole surgery is always possible during the initial stages of any medical condition. The incisions are less, few and almost become unnoticeable in due course of time provided that the patient takes good care of them.

Today, Varanasi Hospital, one of the best hospitals in Varanasi would like to enlighten you on post-laparoscopic surgery incision care tips so that you know how you’re supposed to take care of your minor surgical wounds.

Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes

 

wearing tight-fitting clothes

Although, the wounds after minimally-invasive surgeries are next to none, they are still raw during the beginning of your post-laparoscopic surgery period. So, by wearing tight clothes you restrict the airflow to them, making it impossible for the wounds to heal. Always wear loose and comfortable clothes right after your discharge.

Do not scratch or needlessly touch your incisions

The less disturbance you cause to your surgical cuts, the more effectively and early they will recover. Keep your surgical area undisturbed by not scratching and constant touching.

Apply the ointment with freshly washed hands

If you’ve been prescribed an ointment by the medical practitioner for your surgical incisions, do apply them with clean and dry hands by cleaning the area first. Never use chemically-laden soaps for the said purpose.

Hide your incisions from the sun

The sun would not do any good to your surgical incisions but would further interfere with the wound-healing process. The rays and heat from the sun can make the surgical incisions reddish, swollen, and more prominent. Surely, you can opt for an innerwear inside your regular clothing and go outside in the sun for your activities.

Prevent any accidental injury to the area

Recovery from laparoscopic surgery is easy and way earlier than open surgery. But, that does not become a passport to be careless, so avoid falls, trauma, or any kind of pressure to the surgical cuts. Avoid running, jumping, and any sort of physical activities that can cause you injuries.

Another important factor that determines early healing of your surgical wounds is getting your keyhole surgery done from expert laparoscopic surgeons which you’ll find in Varanasi Hospital, an affordable hospital in Varanasi. So get online booking for your laparoscopic surgery from us.

laparoscopic surgery

Since we are specialists in laparoscopic surgeries, here we would like to throw some light on the laparoscopic procedures available in our hospital. Varanasi Hospital offers the following laparoscopic treatment:

1. Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery:

 

A hernia is never self-treated and during the initial stages, laparoscopic treatment becomes possible. In laparoscopic hernia surgery, a hernia is treated by making four incisions of smaller size through the abdomen and to prevent future recurrence of the hernia, the laparoscopic surgeons make stitches by using surgical mesh.

2. Laparoscopic Pancreas Surgery:

 

We offer laparoscopic surgical treatment for chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). We either remove the damaged part or the entire pancreas as per the patient’s medical requirement.

3. Laparoscopic Gall Stone Operation:

 

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is available at Varanasi Hospital. In this surgical procedure, the gallbladder is removed to avoid the recurrence of gallstones.

4. Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery:

 

In laparoscopic appendectomy, doctors remove the patient’s diseased appendix to circumvent the bursting of the appendix which is a fatal situation.

5. Laparoscopic Hysterectomy:

 

At Varanasi Hospital, laparoscopic hysterectomy is possible. Hysterectomy is the permanent removal of woman’s uterus due to medical reasons like uterine fibroids, endometrial cancer, uterine prolapse, adenomyosis, and other female reproductive conditions.

6. Laparoscopic Rectopexy:

 

We treat rectal prolapse through laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy.

appendix surgery

Appendectomy or conveniently called appendix surgery is a treatment executed to treat appendicitis by removing the appendix altogether. Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix which occurs due to clogging of fecal particles or foreign bodies. If appendicitis is not given serious consideration, it can result in dangerous scenarios like a burst appendix which infects other parts of the body. That’s the only reason why doctors prescribe appendix surgery as an optimum treatment for appendicitis. We can live without an appendix and above all, it’s always better to get rid of something which is inflamed to such an extent.

So, how appendix surgery is performed by medical surgeons? Well, there are two ways to carry out appendectomy,

– Open appendectomy
– Laparoscopic appendectomy.

Nowadays, minimally-invasive appendix surgery is being given more preference if the patient’s case permits, and if not, then open appendectomy becomes the only option. Let’s discuss in brief about the procedures of open and laparoscopic appendectomy.

Open Appendectomy:

 

Open Appendectomy

 

In this method, the surgeon makes one long incision in the lower right abdomen to remove the deceased organ. The operation is complete by making usual stitches. An open appendectomy becomes certain when the ruptured appendix transmits the infection to other body parts.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy:

 

Laparoscopic Appendectomy

 

In laparoscopic appendix surgery, the laparoscopic surgeon uses special devices like laparoscope and thin instruments to remove the appendix. The patient’s abdomen is blown up with carbon dioxide gas (CO2) for better visual convenience. Laparoscopic surgery is entirely carried out with the help of visual monitors and once the appendix is removed, the doctors close the small incisions with sutures and then the CO2 gas is deflated from the abdomen. Some of the known advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy are as follows:

• Early discharge
• A lesser degree post-operative pain
• Near to zero chances of infection
• Cosmetic satisfaction because of almost no scars
• Expeditious or quick recovery
• Early return to normal life.

The surgical technique depends on the patient’s case but post-surgery care is needed for both above-mentioned techniques to facilitate recovery. Here are some discharge guidelines the patient needs to follow at home after surgery:

1. Take better care of your stitches for open appendectomy by keeping the area dry and clean. Do not touch the wound area with uncleaned hands.

2. Rest as much as possible.

3. Never lift or try to lift any heavy object.

4. Choose loose-fitting clothes.

5. Drink a lot of water to curb constipation

6. Consume doctor-prescribed medications.

If you’re looking for a hospital in Varanasi to get appendix surgery, consider Varanasi Hospital to be the one. We are specialists in laparoscopic surgical procedures and also offer cashless hospitalization.

Do you have colon cancer and require colorectal surgery? Find here

Colon cancer or in better words, colorectal cancer, is cancer that initially occurs in the large intestine and gradually spreads to other parts if not treated on time. As evident, cancer is the abnormal and unrestrained growth of cells that becomes a tumor when clumped together and further deteriorates the functioning of the body’s immune system. The treatment suitable during the primary stages of colon cancer is colorectal surgery. However, when cancer reaches the last stages, certain treatment like the following are suggested by the medical practitioner:
– Chemotherapy
– Radiation therapy
– Immunotherapy
– Palliative care.

So, how would you find out if you have colon cancer or not? To find out, you need to check for the following symptoms:

• Constant changes in your bowel movements (diarrhea or constipation)
• Blood in the stool or dark stools
• Rectal bleeding
• Thin stools
• Abdominal pain
• A feeling of incomplete bowels or tenesmus
• Gas and bloating
• Weakness and exhaustion
• Cramps in the abdomen
• Unpredicted weight loss
• Unexplained anemia
• Iron deficiency or anemia
• Dyspnoea or shortness of breath.

In extreme cases (final stages) of colon cancer, the symptoms intensify causing trouble to the sufferer. The signs that your colon cancer is inching close to the end stages are as follows:

• Chronic headaches
• Blurry or hazy vision
• Pelvic pain
• Loss of appetite
• Nausea and vomiting
• Jaundice.

The important thing to ascertain is whether you’re at a risk of developing colon cancer or not. Let’s find out what makes someone more prone to suffer from colon cancer or simply the causes of colon cancer:

1. Overweight or obesity.
2. Old age.
3. Smoking.
4. Diabetes.
5. Overconsumption of red meat.
6. Low-fiber diet.
7. Alcohol consumption.
8. History of colon polyps (cluster of cells present in the colon).
9. Stationary or sedentary lifestyle.
10. Genetics.

Now, the question arises, how would the doctors find out if it’s colon cancer or something else? The diagnostic examination for colon cancer are as follows:

• Physical exam (by pressing on the patient’s abdomen to check for polyps)
• Blood tests (kidney and liver function tests)
• Colonoscopy
• Barium enema X-rays
• CT Scan.

laparoscopic colorectal surgery

Everything is treatable when diagnosed at an early stage. Open or laparoscopic colorectal surgery can be performed to treat colon cancer. Laparoscopic surgery is also called minimally-invasive surgery. We, at Varanasi Hospital, provide laparoscopic surgery with the help of skilled laparoscopic surgeons.

Crash Diet Results In Gallstones

Are you starving yourself to facilitate excessive and hasty weight loss? Do you know that your starvation diet can not only land you up to the hospital but also give you troubling gallstones that can disrupt the digestive system. Our renowned laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Manish Jindal comments that rapid and abrupt weight loss is as much as a culprit for blooming gallstones like obesity.

The question is why weight loss is the offender in this case and why we should be concerned about it. The reason being that when you follow a crash diet or to put it more clearly when you choose to starve yourself, your liver works overtime and releases extra cholesterol into the bile juice, further triggering gallstones.

doctor’s suggested diet-plan

If you are planning to lose weight, then instead of losing weight at one go, you should rather try to shed extra weights slowly but surely and that too by following your doctor’s suggested diet-plan. Some foods increase the advancement of gallstones, so it’s always wise to steer clear of them as much as possible. Eating a healthy diet lowers the possibility of gallstones formation.

We have perfectly established the fact that weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) influences gallstones. People who go for weight loss surgery can also become the victim of these symptomless stones. So it’s always better to have a detailed conversation with your doctor before undergoing bariatric surgery. A diet low in calories is not going to be your best friend when it comes to gallstones. The daily calorie intake for an average man should be no less than 2500 calories a month, for woman, the calorie count should be 2000 kcal in number. These numbers are just a rough estimation as your calorie count depends on other important factors like your age, height, weight, and lifestyle. For instance, if you live a physically active lifestyle, you’ll require more calories to function in your daily life.

laparoscopic gallbladder stone surgery

We hope we were able to make you understand that crash or fad diets are not as good as it is claimed by certain people. If your gallstones need a gallstone operation, then give Varanasi Hospital the privilege to provide you with a permanent cure. We provide gallbladder stone surgery and laparoscopic gallbladder stone surgery and that too with cashless hospitalization.
