  • What are the side effects of bariatric surgery?

    So like any surgery bariatric surgery also has the generic complications such as bleeding, infection, pain etc, along with complications that might arise from general anesthesia. Some specific complications to bariatric surgery will be dictated by the type of surgery you are getting eg sleeve vs bypass vs banding. I would talk to the surgeon to get a specific side effect profile. READ MORE

  • Is acid reflux normal after gall bladder surgery?

    I suggest you go see a GI doctor. You may need an EGD to see the anatomy of your stomach and esophagus. Likewise, the medications they prescribe should help decrease the acid production of the stomach and hence mitigate the symptoms READ MORE

  • What is the recovery period for laparoscopic surgery?

    Laparoscopic procedures are great in that they result in patients resuming a normal life much more quicker compared to open cases. Typically within 4 weeks the patients feel well, however if complications arise, then the course can be prolonged. Smoking, taking steroids and getting infections are some of the common reasons for a longer recovery. READ MORE

  • For a diabetic patient with gangrene in one toe, is foot amputation the only option?

    This is a tricky situation because you have to balance the benefits with risks. The risk here is that the toe will cause the infection to spread (well beyond the foot in some cases) which will lead to a bigger amputation. Also, you need to know the blood supply to the foot; if not adequate, a simple toe amputation might not heal. The benefit is that a foot amputation takes care of the infection and affords healthy tissue time to heal. I suggest you discuss with the surgeon. READ MORE

  • What is robotic surgery and how does it work?

    Robotic surgery is slightly misleading in the sense that it suggests a robot is doing the surgery. In fact, the reality is that the surgeon is doing the surgery utilizing the robot in the process. It is a newer technique which just like laparoscopic surgery falls under the umbrella of minimally invasive surgery. Many procedures have been successfully performed with the help of surgical robots.
