USA patient Brianna Walker shares her experience of Appendix Surgery in Chennai India –   

I had a round of tests that saw me going from department to department; all these tests were carried out with utmost thoroughness, nurses explaining as we went along. All procedures were carried out with care and kindness. The patient’s welfare seems to be considered all times. Staff is ready to chat in a relaxed atmosphere. I am very impressed with the young nurses; they are very concentrated in carrying out various duties. Tuesday evening I was told that my appendix is going to be removed tomorrow, liked the open, frank attitude of the surgeon. Had a blip, had to have more tests, had something that might be a problem, had more specialised tests, cannot believe the level of care, better than anything I have had in the past, nothing is left to chance. Had my operation on Wednesday, as I was going into theatre there was a prayer said for me, never had anything like that before Staff of all grades have a caring attitude, the dietician will try to cater for likes and dislikes. I would come to Indian through Indian Health Guru Consultants without any hesitation, if I needed to. The service on every level has exceeded my expectations.

Appendix Surgery- Destination India

What is Appendix?

Your appendix is a finger-shaped pouches those projects out from your colon on the lower right side of your abdomen. The small structure has no known purpose, but that doesn’t mean it can’t cause problems. Appendicitis is a condition in which the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus. The main symptom of appendicitis is pain that typically begins around the navel and then shifts to the lower right abdomen. The pain of appendicitis usually increases over a period of six to 12 hours, and eventually may become very severe. Anyone can develop appendicitis, but it most often strikes people between the ages of 10 and 30. Appendicitis is one of the most common reasons for emergency abdominal surgery in children. The standard treatment for appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix. In many cases the surgery is straightforward, and you recover quickly. But if your appendix has ruptured, the surgery may be more complicated and you’ll take longer to heal. A ruptured appendix that’s not promptly treated can lead to serious complications such as infection. In rare instances appendicitis that results in a ruptured appendix can be fatal.

Why the Procedure of Appendix is performed

An emergency appendix removal will be needed if you have symptoms of sudden (acute) appendicitis. These symptoms include:

  • Abdominal pain (located in the lower right side)
  • Fever
  • Reduced appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting

If you have symptoms of appendicitis seek immediate emergency medical help. Untreated sudden (acute) appendicitis can be deadly. Do not use heating pads, enemas, laxatives, or other home treatments to try and relieve symptoms. Your health care provider will examine your abdomen and rectum to check for a swollen appendix. Blood tests, including a white blood cell count (WBC), may be done to check for infection.  There is no actual test to confirm appendicitis. It is important to understand that the symptoms may be caused by other illnesses. The health care provider will diagnose the condition based on your symptoms, medical history, and the results of the physical exam and medical tests. The appendix may be removed even when it is not infected to prevent future problems.


How is an Appendectomy done?
During an appendectomy, an incision two to three inches in length is made through the skin and the layers of the abdominal wall in the area of the appendix. The surgeon enters the abdomen and looks for the appendix, usually located in the right lower abdomen. After examining the area around the appendix to be certain that no additional problem is present, the appendix is removed. This is done by freeing the appendix from its attachment to the abdomen and to the colon, cutting the appendix from the colon, and sewing the over the hole in the colon. If an abscess is present, the pus can be drained with drains (rubber tubes) that go from the abscess and out through the skin. The abdominal incision then is closed.Newer techniques for removing the appendix involve the use of the laparoscope. The laparoscope is a thin telescope attached to a video camera that allows the surgeon to inspect the inside of the abdomen through a small puncture wound (instead of a larger incision). If appendicitis is found, the appendix can be removed with special instruments that can be passed into the abdomen, just like the laparoscope, through small puncture wounds. The benefits of the laparoscopic technique include less post-operative pain (since much of the post-surgery pain comes from incisions) and a speedier recovery. An additional advantage of laparoscopy is that it allows the surgeon to look inside the abdomen to make a clear diagnosis in cases in which the diagnosis of appendicitis is in doubt. For example, laparoscopy is especially helpful in menstruating women in whom a rupture of ovarian cysts may mimic appendicitis.If the appendix is not ruptured (perforated) at the time of surgery, the patient generally is sent home from the hospital in one or two days. Patients whose appendix has perforated generally are sicker than patients without perforation. After surgery, their hospital stay often is prolonged (four to seven days), particularly if peritonitis has occurred. Intravenous antibiotics are given in the hospital to fight infection and assist in resolving any abscess. Occasionally, the surgeon may find a normal-appearing appendix and no other cause for the patient’s problem. In this situation, the surgeon may remove the appendix. The reasoning in these cases is that it is better to remove a normal-appearing appendix than to miss and not treat appropriately an early or mild case of appendicitis.

Outlook of Appendix Surgery:

Patients tend to recover quickly after a simple appendectomy. Most patients leave the hospital in 1 – 3 days after the operation. Normal activities can be resumed within 1 – 3 weeks after leaving the hospital. Recovery is slower and more complicated if the appendix has ruptured or an abscess has formed. Living without an appendix causes no known health problems.

Nephrostomy Surgery-get it in India.

nephrostomy.jpg 

 What is Nephrostomy Surgery?

Nephrostomy is a procedure in which a catheter (plastic tube) is inserted through the skin and into the kidney to drain it of urine. Urine drains into a bag outside the body.

 

Who is an ideal candidate for Nephrostomy Surgery?

If patient have a stone in ureter that is large and / or of abnormal shape like stag horn calculus in the renal pelvis which either needs to be dissolved chemically or by Intracorporeal Shortwave Lithotripsy -ICSWL, if patient has a stricture in ureter that hampers the passage of the stone thus causing complete blockage and back pressure on the kidney, if there is a retroperitoneal tumour that is pressing on the renal pelvis or ureter causing ureter to kink, if patient have a tumour of the renal pelvis that has been resected and needs local chemotherapy, then patient is an ideal candidate for Nephrostomy.

Preparation before Nephrostomy Surgery:

 

Either the day before or on the day of the nephrostomy, blood samples will be taken. Other diagnostic tests done before the procedure vary depending on why the nephrostomy is being done, but the patient may have a computed tomography (CT) scan or ultrasound to help the doctor locate the blockage.

Patients should not eat for eight hours before a nephrostomy. On the day of the procedure, the patient will have an intravenous (IV) line placed in a vein in the arm. Through this the patient will receive antibiotics to prevent infection, medication for pain, and fluids. The IV line will remain in place after the procedure for at least several hours, and often longer.

What does the procedure of Nephrostomy Surgery involve?

The entire procedure may take about an hour. Nephrostomy is performed in the operating theatre under stringent sterile conditions. Nephrostomy will be performed under local anesthesia and sedation to relieve anxiety, pain and discomfort during the procedure. Patient will lie flat on his stomach on the operating table. Nephrostomy procedures involve insertion of a catheter (small tube) through the skin into the kidney to drain urine. These procedures can relieve urinary obstruction, divert urine and provide access for opening of clogged or narrowed structures within the kidney, bladder and urinary tract. In circumstances of ureteral narrowing (stricture) or tear of the ureter; placement of a ureteral stent (flexible tube) during nephrostomy can open a clogged ureter or bypass damaged structures allowing urine to drain.Nephrostomy and ureteral stent may be necessary for patients whose normal urine drainage is compromised or occluded by renal stones, mass, edema (possibly post-surgical swelling), scarring, trauma or malignant encasement of the ureter. Nephrostomy and ureteral stent procedures are performed on adults under conscious / IV sedation. General anesthesia is necessary to complete these procedures on newborns and small children. For nephrostomy, the patient is usually positioned in a stomach or side lying position. The radiologist uses ultrasound guidance to locate the kidney and determine the site of entry (usually below the ribs from the back). The area is cleaned and shaved (if necessary). A local anesthetic, usually Lidocaine is injected to numb the skin and a small 1/4-inch incision is made. Under fluoroscopic x-ray guidance, a small hollow needle is inserted into the predetermined entry site. Next, a flexible guidewire is threaded through the needle and the needle is removed. A nephrostomy tube (draining catheter) is then placed over the guidewire, and the guidewire is removed leaving the catheter in place. Finally, a connecting tube is attached to the catheter and a urine-collecting bag, which can be attached to the leg.

If ureteral stenting is necessary, one of two types of stent may be employed, an internal / external stent or an indwelling (internal) stent. An internal / external stent is easily replaced or removed. The indwelling stent is less of a burden to the patient (no external bag), however, replacement or removal requires a cystoscopy by an urologist or a repeat nephrostomy by the radiologist. The internal / external stent can allow for bypass of the ureter while it heals from surgical repair or trauma. Internal / external stents are placed in the bladder via a kidney nephrostomy procedure with one end of the stent (catheter) emerging at the skin’s surface. The stent is then capped. The indwelling (internal) stent (flexible catheter) is also inserted via a kidney nephrostomy procedure, though, no external connection (bag) attached. The indwelling stent is placed in the bladder via the kidney. As a precaution for 1 to 2 days, a nephrostomy tube is secured on the skin with stitches for ready external access to the stent in case of occlusion. The tube is removed later leaving the internal stent in place.

Post-operative care after Nephrostomy Surgery:

 

Outpatients will be expected to stay about 8-12 hours after the procedure to make sure the catheter is functioning properly. They should plan to have someone drive them home and stay with them at least the first 24 hours after the procedure. Inpatients may stay in the hospital several days. Generally people feel sore where the catheter is inserted for about a week to ten days. Care of the catheter is important. The catheter will be located on the patient’s back, so it may be necessary to have someone help with catheter care. The catheter should be kept dry and protected from water when taking showers. The skin around it should be kept clean, and the dressing over the area changed frequently. Special care is needed in handling the urine collection bag so that it does not dislodge the catheter.

Why go to India for Nephrostomy Surgery?

 Over the years, India has become a global center of excellence in urology surgery including the nephrostomy surgery. India has achieved global recognition as a pioneer in innovative nephrostomy surgery techniques to help patients who are often termed inoperable. These innovations have saved hundreds of lives across the globe. Besides the best urology hospitals available in India what attracts thousands of patients is the wide variety of tourist options available that they can visit during their recuperation from the surgery.

India will with no doubt become the global health destination. With prices at a fraction of those in the US or EU, the concept has broad consumer appeal – if people can overcome their prejudices about health care in developing countries. The reality is that Indian private facilities offer advanced technology and high-quality procedures on par with hospitals in developed nations. India is the leading country promoting medical tourism in the world. It is even moving into a new area of “medical outsourcing” where subcontractors aim to provide services to the overburdened medical care systems in western countries. Medical tourism to India is growing by 30% a year and the Indian education system is churning out an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 doctors and nurses each year. India benefits from a large staff of world-class experts and the ultra-competitive cost advantage it offers.
