HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE AN INGUINAL HERNIA?

  • The common areas where hernias occur are in the groin (inguinal), belly button (umbilical), and the site of a previous operation (incisional).
  • You can recognize a hernia if you notice a bulge under the skin. You may feel pain or discomfort when you lift heavy objects, cough, strain during urination or bowel movements, or during prolonged standing or sitting. Other times a hernia may be detected by your doctor on a routine physical examination.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE ROBOTIC/LAPAROSCOPIC REPAIR

Laparoscopic/Robotic Hernia Repair is a technique to fix tears in the abdominal wall using small incisions, telescopes and a patch (mesh). Laparoscopic repair offers less discomfort, a shorter return to work and normal activity for most patients.

CANDIDATE FOR LAPAROSCOPIC INGUINAL HERNIA REPAIR?

Only after a thorough examination can your surgeon determine whether laparoscopic hernia repair is right for you. The procedure may not be best for some patients who have had previous abdominal surgery, prostate surgery, or underlying medical conditions.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE AN VENTRAL HERNIA?

  • A hernia is usually recognized as a bulge under your skin. Occasionally, it causes no discomfort at all, but you may feel pain when you lift heavy objects, cough, strain during urination or bowel movements or with prolonged standing or sitting.
  • The discomfort may be sharp or a dull ache. Any continuous or severe discomfort, redness, nausea or vomiting associated with the bulge are signs that the hernia may be entrapped or strangulated. These symptoms are cause for concern and immediate contact of your physician or surgeon is recommended.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE

(LAPAROSCOPIC /ROBOTIC)

VENTRAL HERNIA REPAIR?

Results may vary depending on the type of procedure and each patient’s overall condition. Common advantages of minimally invasive ventral hernia repair may include: Less post-operative pain, Shortened hospital stay, Faster return to regular diet, Quicker return to normal activity and Less wound infections.

CANDIDATE FOR LAPAROSCOPIC VENTRAL HERNIA REPAIR?

Only after a thorough examination can your surgeon determine whether a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is right for you. The procedure may not be best for some patients who have had extensive previous abdominal surgery, hernias found in unusual or difficult to approach locations, or underlying medical conditions. Be sure to consult your physician about your specific case.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF GALLBLADDER PROBLEMS?

Symptoms can include:

  • Sharp pain in your abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Indigestion
  • Fever
  • Yellow discoloration of skin and eyes is called – jaundice. You might get jaundice if gallstones block your bile duct.
  • Gallstones are often the cause. These small, hard deposits form in the gallbladder. They can also get into the bile duct, which connects the gallbladder with your intestines.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF  MINIMALLY INVASIVE (ROBOTIC/LAPAROSCOPIC)

GALLBLADDER SURGERY?

  • Better cosmetic results.
  • Less pain.
  • Quicker recovery. Most patients return home and to their daily activities the day of surgery

IS  MINIMALLY INVASIVE (ROBOTIC/LAPAROSCOPIC)  GALLBLADDER REMOVAL FOR YOU?

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal might be the right choice for you. It is one of the most common surgeries performed in the US.

Your surgeon will go over your symptoms and discuss the best options of treatment with you.

WHAT IS COLON CANCER?

Colon cancer is a cancer developing in someone's colon (large intestine). It is the third leading cause of cancer amongst men and women in the U.S.

Usually colon cancer starts as a growth on the inner lining of the colon. These growths are called polyps.Some polyps can transform into cancerous tumors with time.

SYMPTOMS OF COLON CANCER

Can include change in bowel habits, bleeding per rectum, anemia, abdominal pain, bloating, weight loss etc.

Regular colon cancer screening is important since colon polyps and early cancer may have no cancer-specific early signs or symptoms.

TREATMENTS OF COLON CANCER

Depends on the part of the colon involved, size of the tumor, and extent of cancer spread, as well as the health of the patient.Surgery is the most common treatment for colon cancer. Surgery is usually done robotically or laparoscopically. In some instances open surgery is necessary.Early-stage colon cancers are typically treatable by surgery alone. More advanced stages of colon cancer can require chemotherapy.

WHAT IS HIATAL HERNIA?

Hiatal hernia is a condition in which part of your stomach or the entire stomach migrates from the abdominal cavity into the chest cavity through an enlarged opening in your diaphragm. Diaphragm is a thin muscle that separates your chest cavity from your abdominal cavity.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF HIATAL HERNIA?

When you have a hiatal hernia, you can experience symptoms, like heartburn, difficulty swallowing, nausea and vomiting, dry cough, bad breath, hoarseness, asthma like symptoms.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE (ROBOTIC/LAPAROSCOPIC) SURGERY FOR HIATAL HERNIA?

With robotic or laparoscopic approach to hiatal hernia, we are able to move your stomach back into its normal position in the abdomen, tighten the enlarged opening in your diaphragm and restore normal function of your stomach. Surgical approach to hiatal hernia presents a definitive treatment as well as relief of symptoms associated with hiatal hernia.

WHAT IS DIVERTICULAR DISEASE?

It is a common diagnosis affecting up to 60% of the US population by the age of 60 years old.

Patients with diverticular disease develop small bulges (diverticula) or pouches in the wall of their large intestine (colon). Diverticula can be found in any part of the colon, but most commonly in the sigmoid colon.

EMERGENCY SURGERY:

Severe cases of diverticular disease can require emergency surgery. Patients with diverticular disease will benefit from a surgical consultation and follow up to monitor progression of their disease and potentially have elective surgery to prevent future attacks of diverticular disease and complications associated with it.

INCLUDES TWO MAIN CONDITIONS:

  • Diverticulosis: defined as presence of diverticula (small pouches) in colon. It can be associated with abdominal pain or cramping, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, bleeding from rectum.


  • Diverticulitis: develops when one or more of the pouches become inflamed, and in some cases infected. It can also be associated with perforation (rupture) of one or several pouches. Common symptoms can include nausea and vomiting, fever, chills, abdominal distention and pain, constipation, less frequently diarrhea.

Hernia Repair

It is based on what type of hernia is present. Hernia surgery can be performed robotically, laparoscopically or through open incisions. Oftentimes, a synthetic mesh is used to reinforce the area.

Appendix Surgery

In most laparoscopic appendectomies, surgeons operate through 3 small incisions (each ¼ to ½ inch) while watching a magnified image of the patient’s internal organs on a computer monitor. In some cases, one of the small openings may be lengthened to complete the procedure. Advantages of Robotic/Laparoscopic appendectomy are: less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stay, quicker return to normal activity, and better cosmetic results.

Gallbladder Surgery

Gallbladder removal is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Surgical removal of the gallbladder is the most effective and safest treatment of gallbladder disease. Removal of the gallbladder is not associated with any impairment of digestion in most people. Gallbladder removal surgery is usually performed with minimally invasive techniques called Robotic or Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Robotic or Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal. It is often indicated for problems of the gallbladder including gallbladder polyps, biliary colic, gallstones, and infection of the gallbladder called cholecystitis.

Pancreas Surgery

The surgeon may remove part of the pancreas or the entire pancreas along with other digestive organs including part of the stomach, small intestine, gallbladder, and common bile duct. The type of surgery depends on the stage of the cancer.

Esophagus Surgery

If one suffers from moderate to severe “heartburn” the surgeon may have recommended Antireflux Surgery. Surgery for gatroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) includes a procedure to strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter function and thereby prevent reflux. It is usually performed robotically or laparoscopically. In the event of esophageal cancer, partial or complete resection of the esophagus may become necessary. Resection of the esophagus cancer can be done through open incisions or through a laparoscope. The surgery may also reconstruct the esophagus.
