What is Hernia?
A hernia is a medical condition in which an organ pushes through a weak spot in your muscle or tissue. Hernias are of several types including, inguinal hernias, femoral hernias, umbilical hernias and Hiatal hernias.
How to know you have Hernia?
According to hernia doctor in Kolkata, hernia symptoms include – a bulge in the groin or scrotum, pain at the bulge site, pain while lifting weights, an increase in the size of the bulge over time, a dull aching sensation and s sense of feeling full or signs of bowel obstruction.
What are the Treatments for Hernia?
Hernia Surgery is the only effective method for hernia treatment. There are mainly two types of surgery methods available for treating hernia, open operation and laparoscopic Hernia surgery.
The most common hiatal hernia and hydrocele surgery in Kolkata is laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic hernia surgery involves making a few small (5 to 10 millimetre) cuts in the belly. A surgeon then inserts a laparoscope tool with a light and a camera attached through these incisions. The camera relays pictures of the inside of the patient to a monitor to guide the surgeon’s movements and help them repair the hernia. The surgeon pulls the stomach back into the abdominal cavity and wraps the upper part of the stomach around the lower portion of the oesophagus, creating a tighter sphincter to avoid reflux of food and acid. This minimally invasive procedure poses less risk of infection and causes less pain and scarring. Recovery after laparoscopic surgery is also faster than traditional surgeries. One can go back to their regular activity in 2 weeks.
What is Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)?
According to Dr Purnendu Bhowmik, a GERD specialist doctor, GERD is a condition when stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus (a tube connecting the mouth and stomach). This acid reflux can irritate the oesophageal lining. Acid reflux is common; however, if you experience acid reflux more than twice a week for several weeks, you may have developed GERD.
Symptoms of GERD
Symptoms of GERD include – heartburn, regurgitation of food, coughing, chest pain, problem swallowing, vomiting, sore throat and hoarseness.
How to cure GERD?
If you experience GERD symptoms, consult Dr Purnendu Bhowmik to discuss your treatment options. Usually, GERD can be cured with lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medications. However, if the symptoms persist, surgery will be required. Untreated GERD can lead to severe complications like asthma, ulcer, Barrett’s oesophagus (pre-cancerous changes to the oesophagus) and many more.
