Best Laparoscopic colorectal surgery in town!

Colon and rectum are part of the digestive system which helps to carry out the process of digestion. The function of the colon is to absorb the water and excrete the waste products as stools, and  the rectum holds the stools before it is finally released. Colorectal disorders  affect some part of the colon and rectum. Colorectal surgery deals with surgically correctable disorders of the colon, rectum and anal canal.


How is laparoscopic surgery conducted?

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery in which a camera attached to a narrow tube is inserted into the abdomen or chest. This camera ensures proper vision of the area that needs to be operated. During the procedure, small incisions(cuts) are made in the body through which other laparoscopic instruments are  inserted. The surgeon can look at the monitor and further conduct the operation. In the case of colorectal surgery, the affected part of the colon or rectum and blood vessels are removed. Being a minimally invasive technique, here the recovery period and the amount of pain is much less.

Traditionally open surgery was conducted to treat  colorectal disorders, but the use of laparoscopic surgery has made the whole procedure much easier and has reduced the complications.


Types of colorectal disorders treated

Some common colorectal disorders Colorectal cancer, Colonic Diverticulitis, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases include Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis and  Rectal prolapse.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers. Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer is very common  and an awareness if this condition is very much necessary to detect it at an earlier stage.

What is pancreatic cancer?

Pancreatic cancer starts in the ductal cells of the  pancreas and it can spread to nearby and distant organs at a very fast rate. It is one of the most aggressive of all cancers. Detecting it at the earliest is rarely possible. But those with a family history of pancreatic cancers or any other gastrointestinal cancers may be able to detect its presence (if Any) by conducting regular checkups. Pancreatic cancer is mostly seen in men rather than in women.

What are the different types of pancreatic cancers?

The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes and hormones such as  insulin, that controls blood sugar levels. The pancreatic cancer is classified according to the area it is affected. Here are the various kinds of pancreatic cancer.

Exocrine pancreatic cancer

Most of the cases of pancreatic cancer arise from the exocrine pancreas and is called pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Exocrine pancreas is that part of the pancreas which secretes digestive juices.

Endocrine pancreatic cancer

Endocrine pancreatic cancers are not that common. They arise from pancreatic cells that secrete hormones that are released into the blood stream directly. Cancers that  arise from these cells are called islet cell tumors.

What are the causes of pancreatic cancer?

The exact reason or cause behind pancreatic cancer is still not known but there are certain risk factors that can cause this.
  • A family history of pancreatic cancers can increase the risk of development of cancer
  • There is an increased risk of pancreatic cancer amongst cigarette smokers rather than the non-smokers and among alcoholics as well.
  • Obese people have an increased risk of development of pancreatic cancer.

What are the symptoms of pancreatic cancers?

The symptoms and signs aren't usually noticed until the disease advances to a later stage.
  • Jaundice – Yellowing of skin, eyes and urine is the most common symptom.
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Upper abdomen pain that spreads to the back

Laparoscopic Pancreatic Surgery for Solving Pancreatic Conditions

Pancreas is an organ we rarely discuss until something goes wrong with it. It's present in the deeper abdominal area and helps in regulating our digestive system by production of enzymes to break down food into necessary nutrients. Pancreatic diseases are fairly common and can really affect your quality of life and sometimes can be grave or life threatening. Laparoscopic pancreatic surgery involves surgery through very small cuts to correct the problems affecting the pancreas.

When laparoscopic pancreatic surgery is done ?

Some of the diseases and conditions that warrant laparoscopic pancreatic surgery include the following:

Acute Pancreatitis and its sequelae: involves inflammation of pancreas and leads to accumulation of infected fluid in and around the pancreas. 

Chronic Pancreatitis: long standing pancreatic inflammation leading to stone formation in the ducts

Pancreatic Cancers: cancer affecting pancreas characterised by jaundice, loss of appetite and weight loss.

Types of laparoscopic pancreatic surgeries

The different types of pancreatic surgeries include: -

Laparoscopic necrosectomy: ideal for treatment of pancreatic necrosis, a complication of acute pancreatitis and involves removal of dead cells and infected fluid accumulated around the pancreas.

Whipple’s Procedure: used for treatment of pancreatic cancer where the affected area is removed

Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy: removes the body and tail of pancreas affected by the disease.

Benefits of Laparoscopic procedure

  • Relatively painless
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions
Dr. NP Kamalesh is a leading gastrointestinal and laparoscopic surgeon, with vast experience in pancreatic surgery based in Cochin.

All you want to know about Appendix Operation

What is Appendix ?

The appendix is a small, worm-like tubular structure attached to the cecum (first part of the colon) of the colon. Most of the victims are between the ages of 10 and 30. Appendicitis occurs when the appendix becomes blocked and bacteria invade and infect the wall of appendix.

Bacteria found in the appendix invade the wall and body starts to respond to it by inflammation.  If inflammation progresses it ruptures and infection spreads throughout the abdomen.  In most cases symptoms are identified before the rupture and can be avoided with the use of antibiotics.  In chronic cases, surgery is suggested and is known as appendectomy. In India appendix surgery is very common and a lot of surgeons are available.

Appendix Symptoms and Signs

Abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever and abdominal tenderness are the usual symptoms associated with appendix.
Other symptoms include swelling of the abdomen, inability to pass gas, constipation and diarrhea with gas, a mild and moderate fever.

Appendix Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosis of the disease can be from white blood cell count, urinalysis, abdominal x-ray, barium enema, ultrasonography, Computerized Tomography and laparoscopy. 

Surgery is the major treatment for appendix removal. Laparoscopy(key-hole surgery) are popular  appendix treatments. In case of a pus filled abscess in appendix, a procedure for draining it out is carried out prior to the appendix removal procedure.

Dr N.P Kamalesh is one of the Gastric Surgeons in Kerala who has performed a large number of laparoscopic Appendix operations in Kerala.  Those who are suffering with appendicitis and other gastro diseases are safe in the hand of Dr N.P Kamalesh and team.

A bulge near belly button ? Groin Hernia Causes and treatment

A hernia bulge is highlighted in the above figure. When the tissues advance through a weak spot in the groin area, groin hernia occurs. It is also known as inguinal hernia. This appear as a bulge in the groin or scrotum. The bulge will either hurt or burn.

What causes groin hernia?

Most groin hernias are caused because the opening in the muscle wall does not close as it should before birth. Due to this, a feeble area in the belly muscle will be present. Pressure on that area can cause tissue to push through and bulge out. 

What are the symptoms?

The main symptom of an inguinal hernia is a bulge in the groin or scrotum. The bulge may form over a period of weeks or months. Or it may appear all of a sudden. A hernia may be painful, but some hernias cause a bulge without pain.

How is groin hernia treated?

Surgery is the one and only way to treat a hernia. In some cases, hernias that are small and painless may never need to be repaired.

Surgery is preferred by most of the people to repair them, even if they do not have symptoms. This is because many doctors believe surgery is less dangerous than strangulation, a serious problem that occurs when part of the intestine gets trapped inside the hernia.

A hernia may come back after surgery. To reduce the chance that this will happen, it is necessary to stay at a healthy weight. Do not smoke, avoid heavy lifting, and try not to push hard during a bowel movement or while passing urine.

DR. N P Kamalesh is one of the best laparoscopic surgeons in Kerala. He is currently working in PVS Memorial Hospital, Cochin. This hospital is known to provide the best hernia surgery in Kerala. Also, this hospital is the best option if you are looking for day care surgery for groin hernia in Cochin.

Is Laparoscopy Appendicitis Recovery better than Open Appendectomy?

     Appendicitis is a 3 1/2-inch-long tube of tissue that extends from the large intestine, simply in words an inflammation of the appendix. Appendicitis almost always requires a prompt surgery to remove the appendix. If untreated, an inflamed appendix will eventually sport, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. This will cause a serious inflammation of the abdominal cavity's lining called as peritonitis, which can be fatal.

     The major cause for appendicitis is when the appendix becomes blocked, often by stool, a foreign body, or cancer. The appendix can swell from any infection in the body.

What Are the Symptoms of Appendicitis?

  • The first warning of the appendix will be a dismal pain in the upper abdomen that increases as it moves to the lower right abdomen. 
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or vomiting 
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Fever of 99-102 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Severe cramps
  • Constipation or diarrhea with gas

How to treat Appendicitis?

     Appendectomy is the standard treatment for almost all cases of appendicitis. It can be done either as an open surgery or laparoscopic. Laparoscopic Surgery is done by making small incisions in the abdomen and inserting small camera and tools for surgery.

Appendectomy: What to expect?

     Antibiotics are given before an appendectomy to fight possible peritonitis. General anesthesia is usually given, and the appendix is removed laparoscopically. The abdomen is also irrigated and drained of pus when you have peritonitis.

Benefits of laparoscopic appendectomy

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activity
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less post-operative complications
  • Minimally sized incisions/scars
