Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi
Gastrointestinal surgery Abu Dhabi is a treatment for those diseased organs that are involved in the digestion of your food. This includes the pancreas, gallbladder, oesophagus, liver, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and stomach. Whether you have cancerous or noncancerous growth, this surgery can be used to remove the damaged part.
Medical conditions like hernia can even get repairing work by this process. If the digestive system has got any problem, then minor surgical procedures are carried out to screen and diagnosis the problem. Some of the gastrointestinal conditions that may be treated with Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi are mentioned below: –
- Appendicitis: –
Appendectomy is a medical procedure in which an infected and inflamed appendix may be removed.
- Colon Cancer and Other Gastrointestinal Cancers: –
If the digestive system is found to have cancer cells, then surgery is done to remove the tumour. But, in case the tumour is fused with another organ then the surgeon may remove the tumour along with some portion of the liver, intestine, or pancreas.
- Diverticular disease: –
A pocket or small pouch-like structure present in the colon region of the large intestine is termed a diverticulum. There is no confirmation on why these develop as in some cases they cause pain and get inflamed. This can easily be managed through surgery. Bowel resection surgery may be recommended if someone has a lot of diverticula that often become inflamed. A part of the intestine needs to be removed in such a condition.
- Gallbladder disease: –
When you face a problem with the gallbladder, it can be removed through gastrointestinal surgery. Cholecystectomy is also the surgery that can be implemented to remove the gallbladder.
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): –
GERD or acid reflux is the condition in which the acid present in our stomach come upwards into the food pipe/oesophagus and causes heartburn. There is a muscle that separates the abdomen from the chest, called the diaphragm. When the stomach pushes through the diaphragm it results in acid reflexion. Sometimes this is called a hiatal hernia. In order to fix the condition, a Gastrointestinal Surgery UAE is made, known as fundoplication. To keep the acid out, the surgeon will fix the hernia by wrapping the uppermost part of the stomach around the bottom of the oesophagus to strengthen the sphincter.
- Hernia: –
When the muscle wall or the connective tissue that protects a body part gets a hole or weak spot in it then it is called a hernia. A bulged skin will appear which is not supposed to be there and this doesn’t come through the skin. Gastrointestinal surgeons are professionals who can repair the weak spot or hole. Remember that this condition can also be painful.
- Inflammatory bowel disease: –
This disease can also be called ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. With inflammatory bowel disease, you will feel inflammation and pain because your intestine will be under attack from the immune system. Your intestine faces mild to severe damage and the damaged part can be removed and new substitute healthy parts are reconnected. This procedure is called bowel resection.
- Rectal prolapse: –
In this condition, a part of the intestine comes through the anus that is later fixed through surgery.
- Weight loss: –
In order to treat obesity, medical science has a lot to offer by its different types of bariatric surgery. The Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi requires experience so a specialist in bariatric surgery gets the job done.
In order to screen and diagnose problems of the digestive system, a special surgical procedure called an endoscopy is used. The surgeon will make small incisions, if required and will then put a long, thin tube with a tiny camera attached at the front end to see what’s inside our body and where the problem lies.
The surgeon/doctor will put the scope through the oesophagus, in case you face difficulty with the oesophagus or stomach and the scope is passed through the anus into the intestine, in case the doctor has to check for colon cancer or other problems of the intestines.
Side Effects or Risk Factors Associated with Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi: –
It’s true that surgeries may come with side effects. Some of the potential side effects of this surgery are: –
- Infection: –
When our body is weak, we were always under the threat of getting an infection. This is why surgeons keep things sterile and clean during Gastrointestinal Surgery UAE. They were very careful during the process of surgery and therefore the patient has a less or negligible chance of infection.
- Pain: –
The patient might feel soreness and pain during recovery but it completely depends on the type of surgery.
- Bleeding and blood clots: –
The recovery process may take longer than usual if any uninvited cuts appear during the surgery. These cuts continue to bleed and take more recovery time. In most cases, it has been seen that the body clots the blood and as a result, the clot blocks the important blood vessels to the brain, lungs, and heart.
- Damage Dealt with Other Body Part: –
Accidental injuries are also possible with the best of hands in practice. During the surgery, a healthy body part can be accidentally damaged.
- Reaction To Anaesthesia: –
Not everyone has the same body type. It has been observed that patients end up with nausea and vomiting. They don’t react well to anaesthesia.
Benefits Of Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi: –
Surgery has evolved as a lifesaving process to repair the damage, remove a diseased body part or tumour. It can also bring quality changes and improves the way of living. People who have not benefited from other treatments, like medicine or diet changes, will get numerous benefits.
The medical field has evolved in such a manner that it can catch colon cancer beforehand to cure it. A minor surgical procedure called colonoscopy is implemented that has brought benefits. But it is also recommended to have colon cancer screening.
The type of Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi will decide what setup and preparation you need to have. You will be notified before the surgery date as there will be a session on your behalf with the doctor, nurse, physiotherapy, and surgeon. Your everyday life may also get impacted but these will pay off at a later stage. You are not allowed to have anything before the surgery. There will also be a stop to your regular medications and vitamins supplements.
You also have to plan for the day and after the surgery. The advantage is that you can plan regarding who will take you home even for minor surgery. The most important time after surgery is when you get home as you will need assistance with your daily work. With everything going on the positive side, you can expect a speedy recovery. In case of complications, you can again head back to your hospital bed which is rare.
How Is the Administration of Gastrointestinal Surgery Abu Dhabi Goes?
In most surgeries, it can be seen that incisions were made using a scalpel (a small knife) and other essential surgery tools. Other surgery may include a scope, consisting of a narrow tube having a camera and other small tools. A scope is very useful to remove growths in the colon. There are two types of surgeries done by cutting into the body, those are: –
- Open surgery: –
To cut open the body a large cut is made by the surgeon to carry out the required procedures.
- Minimally invasive surgery: –
This is also known as laparoscopic surgery. In this procedure, a scope is used by the surgeon to see the inner portion of the body. The scope is inserted through few small cuts. This procedure heals faster because of the small cuts compared to open surgery.
In order to eradicate any feelings of pain, anaesthesia is used during the surgery. General anaesthesia is used to put the patient into a deep sleep, whereas to numb only a certain part of the body, regional or local anaesthesia is used. The use of anaesthesia is completely dependent on the type of surgery is being carried out. Based on the complexity and kind of Gastrointestinal Surgery UAE, the preferences vary from the doctor’s clinic to outpatient surgery centre or may be done in the hospital.
Your doctor will let you know regarding the timing of follow up and will make you aware of how the surgery went and what are proceedings you need to follow. You will also get a customised treatment plan that will have all the necessary information regarding your diet and medications. The recovery time will also depend on the invasiveness of your surgery. If you have a simple surgery like colonoscopy, then you can expect to get back on track within the next couple of days. But, in case of more invasive surgery, your body will require more time to heal and manage the pain after surgery. Make sure to gain complete details during and after the surgery procedure.
