FICS, FMAS, FIAGES
General Surgery is a discipline of surgery having a central core of knowledge embracing anatomy, physiology, metabolism, immunology, nutrition, pathology, wound healing, shock and resuscitation, intensive care, and neoplasia, which are common to all surgical specialities. Our general surgeon has specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, preoperative, operative, and postoperative management, including the management of complications.
Laparoscopic Surgery is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It’s a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions.
Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid. Gallstones can vary in size and number and may or may not cause symptoms. People who experience symptoms usually require Laparoscopic Gallbladder Stone surgery or Cholecystectomy. Gallstones that don't cause symptoms usually don't need treatment.
An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix. It's a common emergency surgery that's performed to treat appendicitis, an inflammatory condition of the appendix. The appendix is a small, tube-shaped pouch attached to your large intestine. Laparoscopic Appendectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the appendix through several small incisions, rather than through one large one.
A hernia is a bulge or swelling that happens as an inner body part pokes through a weak area of muscle or tissue wall. Hernia repair surgery is the world’s most common surgical procedure. Laparoscopic Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia — a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy or hernioplasty.
A hydrocelectomy is a surgical procedure to repair a hydrocele, which is a buildup of fluid around a testicle. Often a hydrocele will resolve itself without treatment. Process removes the fluid and shrinks the size of the sac formerly containing the fluid.
A mass of abnormal tissue that arises without obvious cause from preexisting body cells, has no purposeful function, and is characterized by a tendency to independent and unrestrained growth. Tumours are quite different from inflammatory or other swellings because the cells in tumours are abnormal in appearance and other characteristics.
Foot infections are common in the diabetic patient. Early recognition, proper assessment, and prompt intervention are vital. A combination of surgery and antibiotics is mandatory in virtually all foot infections.
