Endoscopic Surgery | Endoscopy in Haryana at VK Neurocare

Endoscopy:

An endoscopy is a procedure in which the doctor uses specialised instruments (basically a flexible tube with a small camera and light) which are inserted in your body that help them to view the internal organs of the body. It has the ability to produce clear images of the complete digestive tract and other internal organs.

Endoscopic Surgery

It is a surgery in which an endoscope is inserted into the body through a body opening like mouth/anus or by making a small cut in the body. It is sent along with other specific instruments to perform mild surgeries. These instruments can be used to do minor surgeries without making big cuts or insertion in the body. This treatment with the use of Endoscopy is referred to as Endoscopic treatment. The camera pictures allow the surgeons/doctors to see the inside of organs and get a detailed view of it.

The main purpose of Endoscopy is diagnostics and recognising the problem. The view from endoscope helps surgeons to gain an accurate understanding of the problem which has led to enable surgeons to conduct modern form of surgery. In this, once the problem area is recognised, it is operated modifying the endoscopic equipment and is known as Endoscopic surgery depending upon the result report or through any other kind of surgery/medication.

Endoscopic surgery helps patients to get rid of problem tissues faster rather than going for full traditional surgery which takes more time to perform and longer recovery time. In fact, during an endoscopic surgery procedure the patient loses very less blood and thus the recovery is faster. The internal organs are reached through openings in the body through the flexible endoscopic pipes, thus no big cuts or stitching is required and is minimally invasive. This procedure is very effective and can be useful to remove bladder tumours or tumours from digestive tract, colloid cysts, early Esophagael Neoplasis, Stomach cancer etc. It is a safe procedure and mostly can be performed when the patient is conscious, however, local anaesthetic can be given.

With the advancement of technology, there is very minimal to no risk involved in Endoscopy. Endoscopy is fast, reliable and relatively safe procedures.

Endoscopic Surgery Procedure:

Pre-surgery

Our surgeon/doctor would tell you about any preparations that needs to be done like restriction on eating the night before the operation or drinking a lot of water or go on liquid diet etc. depending upon the kind of Endoscopic you would go through for a seamless surgery. Following the instructions and taking medicines on time will help you in a fast recovery.  It is very important that the guidelines are properly followed.

Surgical Treatment

During an endoscopic surgery, a surgeon inserts an Endoscope-which is a flexible thin long tube fitted with camera and light, through an opening in the body such as the mouth. Surgeons will use instruments such as forceps and scissors on the endoscope to operate on the specified area and remove any abnormal tissue. As it is very precisely done, local sedatives are given which means you might be remain conscious while the surgery is being performed.

While the surgery is being performed, our doctors closely review the pictures on the screen and, sometimes, record images from the endoscope to make sure the surgery are as seamless as possible. Once the surgery is done, you may be required to take some rest before you are discharged. For any medication required, our doctors will give you specific instructions.

Post-Surgery

You will be required to take some rest of around an hour once the surgery is done. During this time, you would be kept under observation of our doctors in the hospital.

For most endoscopic surgeries, you will not need to stay or get admitted in the hospital for a long period. Most treatments generally take less than half an hour to perform and this is so quick that that you might not need to stay overnight and would be allowed to go back home the same day. Just with the effect of anaesthesia and pain killers would be enough to ease the pain and you can go and rest in the comfort of your home with your family.  As you might be under the influence of sedatives which makes you feel sleepy, it is required that someone else should drive you to home.

It is very uncommon to have a problem post an endoscopy surgery, but they can happen. If you feel any kind of pain or discomfort, our doctors are available to guide you through any such uncertain time. Please get in touch with your doctor for any such symptoms.

What is Migraine?

Migraine, also known as a vascular headache is a type of severe headache. It is a neurological disorder that causes throbbing pain generally on one or both sides of the brain. Headache is very different from a migraine. The symptoms of headache include aching in the head muscles, pain from mild to severe, dullness, etc., whereas the migraine headache is generally accompanied by pulsing sensation, nausea, and sensitivity towards sound and lights. The migraine attack triggers our neurological system so severely that it hampers our daily routine life activities as well. The prescribed medicines works help in controlling the pain and anxiety of the patient.

What are the Symptoms of Migraine?

The symptoms of migraine headache start at the childhood age only and do not occur in the adult age as per the scientific studies revealed. It has been found that women are at high risk of migraine headache in comparison to men. The migraine starts with the family only. Family history is considered as the most common risk factor for the migraine.

What happens during Migraine attacks?

When Migraine attacks in our body, then it starts from phase one to the fourth phase. The symptoms of migraine vary from the first stage to the last. Migraine is classified into four different stages, which are as follows:

  • Pro-drome
  • Aura
  • Attack
  • Post-drome

 

Pro-drome:

It is an alarming stage of migraine in childhood age. The symptoms include:

  • Food craving
  • Depression
  • Excess yawning
  • The feeling of extreme thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Constipation
  • Stiffness in neck

 

Aura:

Aura is not often seen in the patients. In this stage, the symptoms are generally visual and not neurological. Each symptom may last up to one hour at max. Aura usually occurs before a headache. The symptoms include:

  • Visual impairment
  • Speech disturbances
  • Stabbing pain in arms and legs
  • Nausea
  • Weakness in one side of the body
  • Dizziness

 

Attack or Migraine Headache:

The attack stage lasts up to 3 days from four hours initially. Migraine attack occurs not only once, but many times too in a month. The number of strokes varies from one person to another. The symptoms in the attack stage include:

  • Pain often occurs on both sides
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity towards light and sound
  • Throbbing pain

Post-drome or Migraine Hangover:

It is considered the last and painful stage for both the patient and the people they are surrounded by. Its symptoms are almost similar to the first stage. The symptoms may include:

  • After the attack stage, the patient will be drained
  • Confused
  • Stressed and depressed
  • Lack of appetite

 

It is supreme to understand that every time a headache is not a sign of a migraine. Sometimes a migraine attack hits the body so badly that the body doesn’t feel a headache, but the rest of the migraine symptoms occur. Along with the symptoms, sudden neurological movements in the brain are also responsible for the pain.

How to Avoid Migraine Triggers?

  • Be hydrated and do not skip meals
  • Stay away from those food items which cause headache
