Types of General Surgery

Trauma Surgery

Trauma surgery is a special kind of surgical procedure that focuses upon the treatment and management of injuries incurred by impact forces(events that give high shock in a relatively short period of time), which are often life-threatening. Traffic accidents, Falls, Sports, Crush injuries, Gunshot, or stabbing wounds, are some of the most typical causes of impact forces. Trauma surgeons are frequently part of a larger team of specialized surgeons, including orthopedic (musculoskeletal) surgeons, vascular (arteries, veins, and other vessels) surgeons, maxillofacial (facial injuries) surgeons, cardiothoracic (heart and thoracic organs) surgeons, plastic (body reconstruction following) surgeons, and neurosurgeons (brain and nervous system).

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that is also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), band-aid surgery, or keyhole surgery. A laparoscopy procedure involves a camera(fitted on top of the laparoscope) which is used to examine the belly or pelvis through small incisions (typically 0.51.5 cm).
For this purpose, a device called laparoscope is used which facilitates diagnosis or therapeutic procedures by making a few small cuts in the abdomen. Parts (pen-shaped tubes with a valve) are inserted through small incisions into the abdominal cavity and inflated with carbon dioxide gas to create space between the internal organs and allow viewing and organ manipulation. The video camera, which also includes a built-in light source, is accessed through one of the trocars.

Pediatric surgery includes the diagnosis, operation, and recovery of children with congenital and acquired abnormalities and disorders, whether developmental, inflammatory, neoplastic, or traumatic. It focuses on surgical disorders in prenatal, infancy, childhood, adolescence and possibly young adulthood. Surgical issues encountered by children surgeons are distinct from those which are encountered by an adult or general surgeon. Pediatric surgery requires specialized training. As the patient progresses to adulthood surgeons and physicians need an engagement with a past pediatric surgeon, for certain cases of diagnoses.

Because hernia repairs are so common, you must understand its options for surgery, anaesthesia, and postoperative pain treatment. The hernia is treated with surgery. There are three types of hernia operations options available that include Open surgery, Laparoscopic (minimally invasive) repair, and robotic repair.
Inguinal hernia is the most common type of abdominal wall hernia. Inguinal hernias that cause discomfort or other symptoms in your intestine and abdomen area, as well as those that are incarcerated or strangulated, should be repaired surgically.

Gallbladder surgery

The gallbladder is a tiny sack that rests beneath the liver on the right side of the abdomen. It is roughly the shape and size of a pear. The major function of the gallbladder is to retain and concentrate bile produced by the liver. After eating, bile is secreted from the gallbladder, which aids digestion. The common bile ducts (CBD) transport bile from the liver to the small intestine. Gallstones are small pieces of hard crystalline mass formed abnormally in the gallbladder. Cholesterol and pigments in bile can sometimes form hard particles, resulting in these stones.
A cholecystectomy (gallbladder stones removal surgery) is a surgery in which a small video camera and special surgical instruments are put into your abdomen through four small incisions to view your abdomen and remove the gallstones. The medical term used for this procedure is laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The gallbladder can sometimes be removed with a single large incision also.

Ligaments, joints, muscles, skeleton, cartilage, tendons, and connective tissues make up the musculoskeletal system, which supports organs and binds tissues together. In the surgery, treatment is offered for spine problems, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, cancers, congenital disorders, etc.

Orthopedic surgery can be of many types such as:-

Hip Replacement Surgery-

Hip replacement surgery, commonly known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure used to alleviate hip pain. A hip replacement procedure is either a total hip replacement or a partial hip replacement.
Prostheses (Implants) are utilized in hip replacement surgery to repair damaged components of the hip joint. The orthopedic surgeon replaces the old and injured hip with a new artificial portion. The hip replacement operation is performed to ease the pain.

Knee Replacement Surgery-

Knee replacement surgery is also referred to as arthroplasty. Knee replacement is a surgical technique that resurfaces or replaces the bones in the knee joint to restore its normal functioning.
A knee replacement procedure is performed to replace damaged bone ends and any residual hard cartilage with metal and plastic components. Because the plastic acts like hard cartilage, you can move your joint freely after knee replacement surgery. An artificial knee joint is made out of interlocking components that allow you to bend your knee while maintaining stability.

Endocrine surgery

Endocrine surgery

The surgical treatment of endocrine problems is known as endocrine surgery. Endocrine disorders are diseases that affect the body's endocrine glands. Hormones are chemical messages that are secreted through the bloodstream by the endocrine system. Hormones regulate various functions of our body, that includes bone and tissue growth, reproduction and sexual function, sleep, mood, metabolism, eating, respiration, growth, fluid balance, feminization and virilization, and weight control.
We provide surgeries to treat cancer, tumors, and other illnesses affecting the endocrine system, such as the:

Thyroid Gland-

The thyroid gland is butterfly-shaped in the neck that produces hormones that regulate the body's energy use, growth, and development. The thyroid gland regulates metabolism and is essential for vertebrate development and maturation.

Parathyroid gland -

This is a collection of four tiny glands located behind your thyroid. They contribute to maintaining our bone health. These glands regulate calcium and phosphorus levels.

Adrenal gland-

Adrenal glands are two triangle-shaped glands located above each kidney that aid in the proper functioning of the immune system, energy utilization, blood pressure, and stress response.

Neuroendocrine gland-

Neuroendocrine gland is made up of those cells in the body that regulate other hormones. Nav Imperial Hospital offers the best Endocrinologists and endocrine surgeons frequently collaborating for giving the best possible care to patients with endocrine problems.

Vascular Surgery

vascular surgery

Vascular surgery is a surgical procedure used to address diseases that affects the veins, arteries, and lymphatic channels throughout the body. A vascular condition can significantly affect a patient's quality of life while also increasing the risk of life-threatening health events such as stroke.
Vascular disorders are treated using both open surgery and endovascular methods.

Vascular Surgery Types

Depending on the nature of your problem, there are many forms of vascular surgery. The following are some of the most common methods for dealing with vascular problems.

Angioplasty and stent implantation

Angioplasty with stenting is a minimally invasive surgery in which your surgeon uses a catheter-guided balloon to open a restricted artery. This method is used to treat the following conditions:
Carotid artery disease is characterized by a constriction of the blood arteries that transport oxygenated blood from the heart to the brain. Peripheral artery disease is characterized by a constriction of the blood arteries that transport oxygenated blood to the arms and legs.

Thrombolysis

Another minimally invasive surgery is atherectomy, in which a specialized catheter is placed into a blocked artery, allowing your vascular surgeon to cut and remove plaque from your blood vessels. This procedure can be used to treat individuals with peripheral artery disease and to provide vascular access for dialysis patients.

Fistula arteriovenous (AV)

Your vascular surgeon will join a vein in your forearm to an artery during an AV fistula operation. This strengthens and widens the vein, making it easier to reach for individuals with kidney failure who require dialysis.

Angio Venous (AV) graft Surgery

An AV graft surgery, like an AV fistula treatment that produces a dialysis access point, requires surgically joining an artery to a vein but in this case, via a synthetic tube (the "graft").

Abdominal Open Surgery

In this surgery, an aortic aneurysm or obstruction of the aorta (the artery that runs from your heart to your pelvis) as it passes through the abdomen is repaired with a tiny incision. In many circumstances, your vascular surgeon will stitch a graft into the aorta to divert blood flow around the problem spot. Nav Imperial Hospital provides the patient with a complete new life after the completion of surgery.

Urology Surgery

urology surgery

Urology surgery is the medical specialty that deals with disorders and problems of the male and female urinary systems. Surgery includes diseases and ailments affecting the urinary system, which include the bladder, kidney, ureter, urethra, and adrenal glands. We treat all conditions affecting the penis, prostate, epididymis, seminal vesicles, and testes in males and also provide operations to remove cancer or an obstruction in the urinary tract if necessary.
The subdomains or subspecialties in urological surgery at our hospital are as follows:

Endourology

This sub-specialty under urological surgeries treats kidney, prostate, and bladder problems utilizing closed approaches such as a telescope with a light source rather than open surgery, which may take longer to recover from.

Urological Oncology

This subtype of urology surgery deals with cancers of the bladder, penile, testicular, prostate, and kidney. The Urology surgeons of Nav Imperial Hospital address illnesses involving the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra. Urologists handle men's health issues such as the testes, seminal vesicles, prostate, epididymis, and vas deferens.

Oral and maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery focuses on treating diseases, injuries, and defects of the head, neck, face, and jaws as well as the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.
Surgery under the craniomaxillofacial complex, which includes the skull, mouth, jaws, neck, face, and surrounding tissues such as nerves and muscles, may include the following:

♣ Surgery to remove impacted teeth, tooth extractions, bone grafting, pre-prosthetic surgery to improve anatomy for implant or denture placement, surgical removal of benign cysts or malignant tumors.
♣ Reconstructive surgery following head and neck cancer therapy
♣ Cleft lip and palate surgery are used to correct congenital craniofacial deformities such as cleft lip and palate.
♣ Dysgnathia (incorrect bite) diagnosis and therapy, as well as orthognathic (straight bite) reconstructive surgery.
♣ Soft and hard tissue damage of the oral and maxillofacial region: diagnosis and therapy
♣ Osseointegrated (bone fused) dental implants and Maxillofacial implants for connecting craniofacial prosthesis and bone-anchored hearing aids are implanted during surgery.
♣ Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders: diagnosis and therapy

GERD Surgery

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when stomach acid rushes back into the tube that connects your mouth and stomach regularly (oesophagus). Acid reflux (backwash) can irritate the lining of your oesophagus. It can be cured through medications if you don't feel relief then doctors will go through surgery.
In this surgery the surgeon does treatment in two ways:-

Endoscopic operations:

It entails endoscopic techniques such as sphincter muscle strengthening with sutures and radiofrequency, which employs heat to induce small burns that aid in this process.

Fundoplication:

During a fundoplication, an oesophagus is stitched around the top of the stomach. In most situations, pressure is applied to the lower end of the oesophagus, which aids in the reduction of reflux.

Neurosurgery:

Neurosurgery, popularly known as brain surgery, is a field of study that focuses upon the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders associated with the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, central and peripheral nerve systems, and cerebrovascular system.
Neurosurgeons commonly treat brain tumors, intracranial aneurysms, head injuries, and a wide range of spine diseases such as spinal canal stenosis, herniated discs, malignancies, fractures, and spinal deformities.
The following are some of the most common types of neurosurgical procedures performed by a neurosurgeon.

Cervical Discectomy (Anterior Cervical Discectomy)

Almost all of us face some form of neck pain in our entire life. If a herniated disc is the source of your neck pain, the only solution is to see a neurosurgeon.
The discomfort that radiates from ruptured discs can be excruciating. In most situations, these disc issues can be resolved surgically. This is a standard operation that entails removing the damaged disc.

Craniotomy

A craniotomy is one such operation in which a part of a patient's skull is removed to make extra space for the brain to protect it from being crushed. It is terrible that thousands of people each year are victims of a brain stroke or a brain injury. Fortunately, experienced neurologists are available to undertake neurosurgical treatments for these individuals to preserve their lives.

Chiari Decompression Therapy

This surgical operation is performed on persons who have an abnormality in their brain that governs balance. Arnold-Chiari malformation is another name for this disorder. Chiari decompression is the most risk-free neurosurgical treatment for treating this problem, in which a bone near the back of the patient's skull is removed to improve the patient's balance and coordination.
Nav Imperial Hospital treats the patient's peripheral system effectively which starts working as it was earlier and brings them as a normal person.

Thyroid Surgery

The surgical removal of all or part of your thyroid gland is known as a thyroidectomy. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck. It secretes hormones that regulate every element of your metabolism, from your heart rate to the rate at which you burn calories. Thyroidectomies used to be associated with an inescapable, noticeable neck scar. Many people are now eligible for endoscopic methods that result in no or minimally visible scarring.
Our specialists are trained in two types of endoscopic thyroid surgery. We make a holistic examination to determine with you to determine which method is best for you:

Scarless approach:

To reach the thyroid, our surgeons make incisions on the inside of the lip and use thin, fiberoptic scopes. Using the same fiberoptic scopes, we introduce tiny surgical cameras and equipment through small incisions in the breast to gain access to the thyroid.

Thyroidectomy :

Thyroidectomy is performed to treat thyroid diseases such as cancer, noncancerous thyroid enlargement (goiter), and overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
Iodine deficiency is the most common cause of Goiter. Thyroid swelling usually manifests as a painless swelling in the front of the neck that grows over time. Swelling of the thyroid gland can make swallowing and breathing difficult. Swelling can be either benign or cancerous. To make a diagnosis, a Thyroid Profile, Ultrasonography, and FNAC (Needle test) are used. The diagnosis obtained on Ultrasonography and the FNAC result determines whether or not the thyroid should be surgically removed.

Liver Surgery

liver surgery

The surgical removal of a part of the liver is known as liver surgery. It is also known as hepatectomy. This procedure is typically used to remove various types of liver tumors from the resected area of the liver. The goal of liver resection is to remove the tumour and adjacent liver tissue while leaving no tumor behind.
To cure liver cancer, surgery needs to be performed or a liver transplant is to be done. The surgical removal of all or part of the liver is known as liver transplantation. It's also known as a full or partial hepatectomy.
When a damaged liver from a deceased donor is removed after a transplant, total liver resection is performed (cadaver). A living donor can also donate a chunk of liver tissue obtained during a partial hepatectomy, which can be done in a typical open procedure or with minimally invasive procedures.

Pancreas Surgery

Pancreas surgery is a procedure to remove the pancreas head and, in certain cases, the pancreas body. Parts of the small intestine, the bile duct, the gallbladder, lymph nodes around the pancreas, and sometimes even a portion of the stomach are removed as well.
Depending on your circumstances, your doctor may discuss different pancreatic surgeries with you. If necessary, seek a second opinion from a skilled surgeon. Among the options are:

  ♣ Surgery for tumors or abnormalities of the pancreas's body and tail. A distal pancreatectomy is a surgery to remove the pancreas's left side (body and tail). Your surgeon may need to remove your spleen as part of this treatment.
  ♣ Surgery to remove the pancreas in its entirety. This is known as a complete pancreatectomy. You can live a somewhat normal life without a pancreas, but you will require insulin and enzyme replacement for the rest of your life.
  ♣ Tumours impacting adjacent blood vessels may require surgery. Many people are disqualified from having the Whipple procedure or other pancreatic surgeries because their malignancies involve adjacent blood arteries. The treatments also include the removal and reconstruction of blood vessel segments.
  ♣ A Whipple procedure may be an option for persons whose pancreas, duodenum, or bile duct have been impacted by cancer or another condition. The pancreas is an important organ located in the upper abdomen, behind the stomach. It collaborates closely with the liver and bile ducts. The pancreas secretes enzymes that aid digestion, particularly lipids and proteins. The pancreas also secretes hormones that aid in blood sugar regulation

Your doctor may advise you to undergo a Whipple surgery to treat:
Cancer of the pancreas, Cysts of the pancreas, Tumors of the pancreas, Pancreatitis, Cancer of the ampulla, Cancer of the bile duct, Neuroendocrine tumours, Cancer of the small bowel, Pancreas or small intestine trauma, Another pancreas, duodenum, or bile duct tumors or diseases
The purpose of a Whipple operation for cancer is to remove the tumor while also preventing it from developing and spreading to other organs. For the majority of these cancers, this is the only treatment that can lead to prolonged survival and cure.
