Visit a Hernia Surgeon
Hernias occur when there is a defect in the fascia that surrounds the abdominal organs. The most prominent hernia symptom is a lump or bulge underneath the skin. The protrusions may or may not be associated with pain and are usually found near the groin or belly button. These defects do not always require surgery, but in many cases it is required to prevent organs from getting entrapped within the defect. Make sure to see a hernia surgeon as soon as possible to determine the best hernia repair method.
A cholecystectomy, or gallbladder removal, is often needed when gallstones form in the gallbladder or bile duct. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy reduces the risk of surgical infections and promotes a faster recovery time. The small incisions made to remove the gallbladder produce less pain and heal more seamlessly than a standard large incision.
Although lipomas are non-cancerous soft tissue growths, if they cause pain, irritation, or discharge, they may need to be removed. Dr. Kamrava provides swift lipoma removal as an outpatient procedure that does not require hospitalization.
