Removal of an Ovarian Cyst

Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that develop on a woman's ovaries. Cysts are very commonly found in women who have polycystic ovary syndrome and are, in fact, one of the defining characteristics of the disease. These occur when your body begins growing an egg follicle that does not fully develop/release a mature egg at the end of the menstrual cycle.
 Ovarian Cystectomy is the surgical way of removing the cyst in the ovary. Ovarian cysts that do not disappear on their own or those that are 4 to 8 centimeters in size may be removed by surgery to ensure that the cyst is not cancerous. Surgery may also be needed if some patients who are menopausal (the time in a woman's life in which the menstrual cycle ends). Surgery to remove an ovarian cyst may be done by a Cystectomy without removing the ovary.

The Best way to remove ovarian cysts is Laparoscopic treatment. In Laparoscopic treatment, Laparoscopy is used to remove ovarian cysts in a less invasive way. Laparoscopic surgery involves the use of a laparoscope that is inserted through a small incision below the navel. A laparoscope is an endoscopic tube with a camera and light attached to it. Other tiny incisions are also made through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove the ovarian cyst.

Symptoms of ovarian cyst:
  1. Pelvic pain shortly before your period begins or just before it ends
  2. Pelvic pain — a constant or intermittent dull ache that may radiate to your lower back and thighs
  3. Pelvic pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  4. Menstrual irregularities
  5. Pressure on your rectum or bladder — difficulty emptying your bladder completely
  6. Pain accompanied by fever or vomiting
  7. Fullness or heaviness in your abdomen
  8. Nausea, vomiting or breast tenderness similar to that experienced during pregnancy
  9. Sudden, severe abdominal or pelvic pain
Risks involved in Laparoscopic Surgery:
  1. Injury to the bowel or bladder
  2. Bleeding
  3. Infection 
  4. Uncontrolled pain
  5. Clotting
  6. Adverse effects of anesthesia
  7. Recurrence of cysts after the surgery
Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery:
  1. Recovery is very fast in the case of laparoscopy 
  2. Patients can resume normal activities in a day or two

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Bangalore

Laparoscopic Stomach Hernia repair is similar to other laparoscopic procedures. First the surgeon makes a cut over the area of the hernia. A thin, lighted instrument called a laparoscope is inserted through the incision. The instruments to repair the hernia are inserted through other small incisions in the lower abdomen. Mesh is then placed over the defect to reinforce the abdominal wall.
Both Women and men can get a hernia. Some hernias it may be present at birth, while others develop over time. A hernia does not get better over time and it will not go away by itself. Hernias are most commonly occurring in the groin ('inguinal hernias'), around the belly button ('umbilical hernias'), and near the site of a previous surgical operation ('incisional hernias').

Approximately 600,000 hernia repair operations are performed annually in India. Many are performed by the conventional "open" method. Some hernia repairs are performed laparoscopically using a small telescope called laparoscope.

During laparoscopic surgery, we make a small half inch cut in the skin at the belly button. Then a thin cannula  (tube) is introduced in between the muscle fibers without cutting any of the muscle. Through the tube, the laparoscope is inserted into the patient's body. It is equipped with a tiny camera and light source that allows it to send images through a fiber-optic cord to a television monitor. The television monitor shows a high resolution magnified image. Watching the monitor, the surgeon can perform the procedure. While looking inside the patient, further 2 half inch diameter tubes are put in. This way, the already weak muscles are not disturbed and the net is placed through the ½ inch holes that are away from the hernia. Thus there is minimal disturbance to the normal body and as a result the pain is minimal and very little rest is required. There are more and more reports showing the success of this technique in reducing post operative pain, rest and recurrence rates.

Preparation  for Surgery

Most hernia operations are performed on an outpatient basis that is the patient will go home on the same day that the operation is performed.

You should shower the night before or the morning of the operation.

You should refrain from eating or drinking after midnight on the night before your operation.

Some preoperative testing may be required depending on your medical condition and the type of anesthesia needed for your operation.

If you have difficulties moving your bowels, an enema or similar preparation should be used after consulting with your surgeon.

If you take medication on a daily basis, discuss this with your surgeon.

Laparoscopic hernia is an efficient technique that compares favorably to current open surgical techniques. The patients are relatively pain free and can return to work and normal activities much quicker than open hernia repairs.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic) Repair
  1. Shorter operative time, 
  2. Less pain, 
  3. Shorter recover period.

We provide all laparoscopic procedures like AdhesiolysisSurgery, Cholecystectomy, Hernia Repair, Hydatid Cyst Liver, Inguinal HerniaRepair, Rectopexy, Repair of Hiatus Hernia, Splenectomy, Varicocelectomy, Drainage of Liver Abscess, Tubal Ligation, Ovariar Cystectomy, Hysterectomy etc with affordable cost in Bangalore, India.

LAPAROSCOPY : The Fastest Growing Technology in Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery or minimally invasive or Keyhole surgery is a surgical procedure in which done with the help of a video camera and several thin instruments. In Laparoscopic surgery small incisions about half an inch are made and after that laparoscope attached with laser are passed through those incisions. These ports help to place camera and instruments inside the patient's body in order to make internal organs visible to the surgeon. And gas like carbon dioxide injected into belly through one of the incision in order to inflate the belly, this gas make a gap between internal organs and abdominal wall this helps the surgeon to make a clear view on internal organs. The video camera inside the body acts like surgeon's eyes in which it transfer the internal view of organ to outside monitor and surgeon perform the surgery with the help of instruments which already placed through the ports by watching the inside view on screen.

After conducting the operation the instruments and gas will be removed, after that incisions will be repaired with stitches and bandages. The scar happened due to surgery are negligibly small and will be faded soon. The entire procedure may take half an hour to one and half hour. The patient will be shifted to rest room for two to five hour. Patient can enter into normal life activities except strain full work or exercise on the next day.

  6. Rectopexy
  7. Repair of Hiatus Hernia
  8. Splenectomy
  9. Varicocelectomy
  10. Drainage of Liver Abscess
  11. Tubal Ligation
  12. Ovariar Cystectomy
  13. Hysterectomy
In India better 'Laparoscopy procedures' are conducted on very low rate when compared with other countries. Due to the introduction of new technologies in this field the ease of the procedures increases year by year.
