Dr. Pankaj Hans is a renowned Gastrointestinal Surgeon in Faridabad. Gastrointestinal surgery is a treatment for diseases of the parts of the body involved in digestion. This includes the esophagus (Food pipe), stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum. It also includes the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
Surgery may be used to remove a cancerous or noncancerous growth or damaged part of the body, such as the intestine. Minor surgical procedures are used to screen and diagnose problems in the digestive system.
At Hans Laparoscopy SurgiClinic we offer a wide range of surgical procedures to cure outpatients. Below are gastrointestinal conditions that we treat with surgery:
The small and large intestine
Non-cancerous tumors and growths in the digestive system
Omental or mesenteric cysts
Bowel gangrene or ischemia
Appendicitis. When the appendix becomes infected and inflamed, it may be removed (appendectomy) (See appendicitis for more details).
Diverticular disease. A diverticulum is a small pouch or pocket in the colon (large intestine). Sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain (diverticulitis).
This is often managed without surgery. If someone has a lot of diverticula that often become inflamed, the doctor may recommend bowel resection surgery to remove that part of the intestine. Due to extensive inflammation sometimes these diverticula can perforate and in that case also need to resect that segment of the colon.
Liver Hydatid Cysts (Parasite cyst)
A liver abscess (Pus collection in the liver)
Ruptured liver abscess/Cysts
Gallbladder disease. When there is a problem with the gallbladder — usually gallstones — the gallbladder can be removed. Surgery to remove the gallbladder is also called a cholecystectomy (See Gall Bladder Stones for details).
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Hiatal hernias. GERD or acid reflux is when the acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus (food pipe) and causes heartburn. Sometimes it happens because of a hiatal hernia. This is when the stomach pushes through the diaphragm, a muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen. A surgeon can do a surgery called fundoplication to fix it. The surgeon will fix the hernia if there is one and then wrap the top of the stomach around the bottom of the esophagus to strengthen the sphincter, which keeps acid out (See GERD for more details).
Pancreatic Necrosis for acute or chronic pancreatitis
Rectal prolapse. Surgery is used to treat rectal prolapse, a condition in which part of the intestine comes through the anus (See details in Rectal Prolapse).
Weight loss. Different types of bariatric surgery (for example, gastric bypass) may be done to treat obesity. (See details in the Bariatric surgery section)
Splenic cyst and abscess
The type of surgery and approach depends on the patient’s age, existing health problems, the extent of the disease, and the general health of the patient.
The Laparoscopic approach has always a better outcome. If the patient is fit and healthy and the disease is in a stage where the laparoscopic procedure is possible then it must undergo laparoscopic surgery.
Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
Early and easy mobility
Less tissue trauma and less post-operative pain
Less Dependence on pain reliever tablets
Low risk of infection
Almost no risk of hernia
