Lipoma removal is a very safe minor surgical procedure thats generally done as outpatient surgery. The key risks associated with this treatment are those associated with any minor surgical procedure, most notably, a small risk of infection and a chance of scarring or other cosmetic issues. The risk of complications increases slightly for lipomas that…. Read More. ...
We in Rident believe it is important to keep up with the modern technology, this is why among all the services we provide for our patients we also added the use of laser. Lasers can be used for various dental indications such as gingivitis, periodontitis, periimplantitis (infections of tissue around implants), minor surgical procedures and other tooth treatment. Our educated doctors in Rident use Waterlase Express laser and a diode laser. These are one of the most modern and most innovative lasers nowadays and provide a fresh access to dental medicine. Simple to use, they give the doctor the ability to work without or with much less anaesthesia, as well as faster recovery and healing. The best results are expected in treatments of gingivitis and periodontitis (as replacement or additional tooth extraction therapy), and the treatment of peri-implantation (cleansing and implantation-dissection). It can also be used for minor surgical procedures, such as frenulectomy, gingivectomy, vestibuloplasty, ...

The Minor Basic Instrument set is utilized by members of the surgical field for the purpose of operations restricted to management of minor problems and injuries that are not considered life-threatening or hazardous. Commonly, these procedures can be performed in a brief period of time - usually less than an hour under some type of local anaesthesia. The surgeries performed do not - under normal circumstances - bring a major hazard to life or function of organs or body parts. Some minor surgical procedures may be performed electively. Some surgeries that children undergo are elected minor surgeries. The recovery period is short, and children resume their usual activities of daily living quickly. However, there are some surgeries that are a little more complicated; nevertheless, they are still not considered major ones. The examples of these are herniorrhaphy, bilateral tubal ligation, and most urological surgical cases. These procedures are impossible to perform without the proper tools - minor ...
Minor surgical procedures and wisdom teeth. Dentists can do a large number of surgical interventions in the mouth. The term "Minor oral surgery" refers to smaller operations and includes removing wisdom teeth, impacted teeth, and severely broken-down teeth, as well as apicectomies, biopsies and other procedures. Procedures are usually carried out using routine local anaesthetic (injections) although sometimes sedation can be provided if necessary. Procedures requiring general anaesthetic will be done by an oral surgeon in a hospital setting. ...
The procedure is performed while you are lying down in a slightly tilted position, with your head lower than your feet. You will be given a general anaesthetic to relax your muscles and prevent pain during surgery. Next, a small incision is made near the navel. The laparoscope is inserted through this incision and the abdomen is inflated to make the organs easier to view. The laparoscope might also be equipped with devices for taking tissue samples or removing scar tissue. A second incision might also be made at the pubic hairline. This incision provides an opening for instruments needed for completing minor surgical procedures. After surgery, patients generally stay in a recovery room for about one hour. Patients are then taken to an outpatient surgery unit for continued observation. You will be discharged after you receive instructions for your home recovery. In most cases, patients can leave the hospital about four hours after laparoscopy. Rarely a patient will need to stay overnight to aid ...

Postoperative care lasts from the time your child enters the recovery room until discharge from the hospital. The length of this phase depends on the type of surgery and your childs medical condition. Most children with minor surgical procedures may be discharged the same day of the procedure.

Nothing brings out the mama lioness in me more than seeing one of my cubs not being treated as well as I think it should be.. Recently I had the unusual experience of accompanying my oldest daughter into an unfamiliar hospital for a minor surgical procedure. Now this daughter isnt exactly a cub - shes a full-fledged adult, with a masters degree in health care administration, a husband, and two small boys of her own.. But as I watched the OR team prepare her for surgery, I started to feel like an odd combination of a mama lioness and a secret shopper. To the staff members who came in and out of the hospitals preoperative area, it was clear that I was simply the family member in the corner, and they probably figured I had little clue about what was transpiring. Meanwhile, I was taking in every detail. Some tasks were performed excellently - others, not so much.. The hospital where her surgery took place is a small community hospital on Long Island.

Varicose veins, while most often harmless, can be a source of insecurity and embarassment for people who have them. There are many options for patients, which are often individualized to each person. Treatment options include: sclerotherapy, laser surgery, minimally invasive catheter-assisted procedures, minor surgical procedures: vein stripping, etc.
The pacemaker system includes the pacemaker itself and wires that connect the pacemaker to the heart. The pacemaker unit is slightly larger than a mans wristwatch and contains a battery and computer circuits (Figure 1). The computer circuits perform the functions of monitoring the patients underlying heart rhythm and delivering an electrical signal to cause the heart to beat at the desired rate. Many pacemakers implanted today also may have rate responsiveness features that allow temporary pacing of the heart at faster rates during periods of exercise. Single-chamber pacemakers have only one wire connected to the heart and dual chamber pacemakers have wires to both the top and bottom chambers of the heart (Figure 2). Your cardiologist will recommend which type of pacemaker is needed. The pacemaker is implanted by a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. The wires are placed through a blood vessel beneath the collar bone and positioned in the heart under x-ray. The wires are ...

If you notice any of these symptoms, in either you or your female partner, seek medical advice.. How is PID diagnosed?. PID is diagnosed following a pelvic examination by your doctor. A sample of vaginal discharge may also be taken for analysis and in some cases, a laparoscopy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis a laparoscopy is a minor surgical procedure carried out under anaesthesia during which a small incision is made in the abdomen to enable your doctor to view the internal pelvic structures. PID can be treated with antibiotics, although there is still a risk that there has been permanent damage to the reproductive organs making pregnancy difficult. Who is most at risk of contracting PID?. In theory, any woman can get PID. However the chances of you contracting it increase if:. ...
Diagnosis is considered uncertain until proven by laparoscopy, a minor surgical procedure done under anesthesia. A laparoscopy usually shows the location, size, and extent of the growths. This helps the doctor and patient make better treatment choices.. What Causes Endometriosis?. The cause of endometriosis is unknown. The retrograde menstruation theory (transtubal migration theory) suggests that during menstruation some of the menstrual tissue backs up through the fallopian tubes, implants in the abdomen, and grows. Some experts believe that all women experience some menstrual tissue backup and that an immune system problem or a hormonal problem allows this tissue to grow in the women who develop endometriosis.. Another theory suggests that endometrial tissue is distributed from the uterus to other parts of the body through the lymph system or through the blood system. A genetic theory suggests that it may be carried in the genes in certain families or that some families may have predisposing ...
As a patient who has lived with endometriosis for 27 years, I feel compelled to point out an inaccuracy in this column. This quote is incorrect:. "A simple pelvic examination would have quickly pin-pointed the diagnosis, endometriosis".. As per the Endometriosis Association, "Diagnosis is considered uncertain until proven by laparoscopy, a minor surgical procedure done under anesthesia. A laparoscopy usually shows the location, size, and extent of the growths. This helps the doctor and patient make better treatment choices".. This Intelligencer article came to my attention because it was picked up as a "Google Alert" for the topic of "endometriosis". (That means many people are being exposed to the inaccurate info included in this article). So, I received an email from Google that linked me here.. The incorrect quote above immediately drew my attention because it is this type of misinformation in the media that has hurt so many endometriosis patients for so many years.. I hope that the ...

HPS is a pigmentation disorder similar to that of other forms of albinism but is unique in the association with abnormal bleeding. The skin, hair and eye are lightly pigmented but the degree varies widely. Many patients note that their hair darkens as they grow older. The iris of the eye is often blue in color but may also be hazel. The inside of the eye (retina) also is lightly pigmented and usually has an abnormal formation of the macula which is an area of the retina that we use for the highest visual resolution. As a consequence, visual acuity is usually below normal (but stable) and many patients are legally blind. Nystagmus (dancing of the eyes), sensitivity to light, and crossing of the eyes (strabismus) are common. Refractive errors such as near-sightedness and far-sightedness are often present.. Prolonged bleeding from nosebleeds, menstrual periods, tooth extraction, and minor surgical procedures is experienced by many. Easy bruisability is also common.. The skin is susceptible to sun ...

it is so comforting to have others experience the exact same thing you do and guess what I am a nurse. unlike many i dont have problems w/home monitoring myself or a close nurse friend. but bar the door katie outside of that circle!! absolute 100% once that cuff goes on the readings go from 112/60 at home to spike to 150/100 or higher. and how about this, went for a minor surgical procedure and it got cancelled. my mistake, should have gone to hospital instead of surgi center because they were so inexperienced, it was new facility and from the first step in the place I could tell they were disorganized and the electronic BP readings were so high. they even gave me meds IV to bring it down but ended up not getting procedure. Guess what as you all well know even if you have no medical training- as soon as i was home, that stuff was dropping my BP so fast and my own MD was mad because he said you could have gone into shock with it dropping too low. he changed my med and have not had any trouble ...
Orf is a self-limiting disease, which means it will get better on its own without treatment. It usually clears up within three to six weeks. It may be useful to cover the lesion with a sterile (hygienic) dressing and immobilise your finger to help reduce discomfort. Read more about applying plasters and other dressings.. You should see your GP if the lesion isnt healing, you develop a fever (high temperature) or youre in severe pain, as some people also develop a bacterial infection. This may require treatment with antibiotics. In rare cases the lesion may not go away and a minor surgical procedure may be required to remove it.. Although theres some evidence to suggest that using topical imiquimod cream may help to reduce lesions, you should speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice first.. ...
Bone grafting, normally a minor surgical procedure done in the dental office, is used to build up new bone in the area of your jaw that used to hold teeth. A small incision is made in your gum to expose the bone beneath it, and then grafting material is added. Most often, the grafting material is processed bone that serves as a scaffold, around which your body will actually deposit new bone cells. The grafting material will eventually be absorbed by your body and replaced by your own new bone.. The grafting material needed can come from a variety of sources. Sometimes it comes from your own body. Very often, however, it is bone from an animal or human donor that is processed by a laboratory to make it sterile and safe. Grafting material can even be synthetic. It comes in a variety of forms: powder, granules, putty or even a gel that can be injected through a syringe.. ...
Each method of birth control has its own advantages and disadvantages. You can often get a yearlong prescription for birth control pills from your doctor, then set it up with your insurance provider for automatic delivery. This provides an easy yearlong solution that you can easily stop if you decide its time to conceive. However, you will have to remember to take your pill every day. An intra-uterine device, or IUD, goes into your uterus to prevent pregnancy. Its a minor surgical procedure and can last from three to five years, though you can reverse it whenever you want. Vasectomies and tubal ligation can also last for a year or more. These are generally considered "permanent" birth control methods, although it is possible to have the procedures reversed.. ...
Several years ago shortly after I had two teeth extracted I suddenly developed a very severe case of Bacterial Pneumonia. I was a perfectly healthy 45 year old male with no history of any chronic medical conditions. I went to bed feeling perfectly fine and a few hours later woke up with difficulty breathing. Called the ambulance and was taken to the local hospital before being transferred to a major hospital in New York City. My condition became critical and was advised that I would have to undergo a "minor" surgical procedure. My lung was removed from my chest cavity (taken from between my ribs) and scar tissue was peeled off the lung before it was replaced back into my chest cavity. The surgical scar that resulted spans my entire back. I was advised that my infection was a result of my recent dental work and could have prevented by pre medicating with four 500 mg (2000mg) of Amoxicillin an hour prior to the dental work. Now I pre medicate even when I undergo a routine cleaning. Anything that ...

Tympanocentesis is a minor surgical procedure that refers to puncture of the tympanic membrane with a small gauge needle in order to aspirate fluid from the middle ear cleft or to provide a route for administration of intratympanic medications. The procedure was described in 1768 and has been used since to treat acute otitis media (AOM).

Desmopressin. This medication is available as an injection (DDAVP) or nasal spray (Stimate). Its a synthetic hormone, similar to the natural hormone vasopressin. It controls bleeding by stimulating your body to release more von Willebrand factor already stored in the lining of your blood vessels. DDAVP is usually effective in people with type 1 and some subtypes of type 2 disease. Many doctors consider DDAVP the first treatment to use in the management of von Willebrand disease. Some women use the nasal spray (Stimate) at the beginning of their menstrual periods to control excessive bleeding. It can also be effective when used before a minor surgical procedure.. ...
Editors note: Doctors currently treat rheumatoid arthritis, a crippling autoimmune disease, with an arsenal of drugs that, while often effective, can have serious side effects. Authors Ulf Andersson and Kevin J. Tracey describe a circuit between the immune system and the nervous system that enabled development of an implanted nerve stimulator to treat the disorder, now being tested by a patient in Bosnia. If further clinical trials show as much promise as this initial case, similar devices may be developed for a broad range of inflammation-related diseases, from diabetes to congestive heart failure. A few months ago one of us (Kevin Tracey) traveled to Mostar, Bosnia, to meet a very special patient, the first to receive a surgically implanted nerve stimulator to treat disabling rheumatoid arthritis. Eight weeks earlier, as a volunteer in a research study, the patient underwent a minor surgical procedure during which a neurosurgeon implanted a small pacemaker-like device and attached the ...
When ophthalmic medical technicians or technologists ask to look you in the eye, they really mean it. These professionals assist ophthalmologists- or eye doctors- to provide eye care to patients. Ophthalmic medical technicians and technologists administer eye exams, dispense eye medications, and instruct patients in the care and use of corrective lenses. They take measurements of the eye with highly specialized equipment. Technologists also train and supervise technicians and assistants, take diagnostic images of patients eyes, and may assist with minor surgical procedures. Technicians may measure a patients current lenses for accuracy. Working with eyes is delicate work. It takes attention to detail and dexterity. Interpersonal skills are also important, whether comforting an anxious patient or clarifying specifications for lenses. Generally these skilled professionals work full time. Both ophthalmic medical technicians and technologists typically earn an ophthalmic technician certificate, ...
I had a minor surgical procedure today (Im just fine, thank you). As usual, when I am incognito, I cant help tweaking the medical professionals just a bit. And since this was the outpatient surgical center, nobody knew I was a doctor. So I had a pleasant time chatting with the nurses and receptionists, they brought me back and got me prepped and hooked up. We chatted a bit about current events. And then the anesthesiologist came in to do his pre-op bit, and went through his routine rapid-fire questions ...
An implanted port (or port) is a small vascular access device - about the size of a quarter in diameter - with a hollow space inside that is sealed by a soft top. It is used to carry medications into the bloodstream and is placed in patients who need intermittent to long-term I.V. therapy. The implanted port is connected to a small flexible tube called a catheter. A special needle is put in the soft top of the port so that medications and fluids can be given and blood samples withdrawn. In a minor surgical procedure, the port is implanted, which means it is placed completely beneath the skin, and the catheter is inserted inside a blood vessel.. An implanted port allows the doctor or nurse to deliver medications and fluids or withdraw blood samples without having to stick your arm veins directly with a needle. The implanted port allows the medications to be delivered directly into your heart to dilute and deliver the medication more quickly than if the medication was given in the veins in your ...
