When you are having difficulty in swallowing food, chances are you might be having a medical condition called dysphagia. There can be multiple reasons why you might have dysphagia, but a rare cause is another underlying condition called Achalasia Cardia. If you have been affected by this health condition, the point of intersection between the lower end of the food pipe and the stomach does not adequately open whenever you try to swallow food. This causes the food to remain stagnant in the food pipe, which results in vomiting.
As a result, you may become malnourished and start losing weight. Moreover, the food pipe starts dilating because of delayed gastric emptying, medically termed gastric stasis or gastroparesis. Eventually, you may not get enough nutrients and vitamins and develop protein-energy malnutrition. This significantly impairs your quality of life, and if you do not go for the proper treatment, it can lead to some serious complications.
Laparoscopic Heller procedure and a laparoscopic partial fundoplication are thesurgery performed to treat patients affected by Achalasia Cardia. It is a very delicate surgery that involves splitting up of muscles at the bottom end of the oesophagus without having to open the lumen. If you want to end your GI-related misery in a hassle-free way, this is
probably the best laparoscopic procedure that will bring relief.
Dr. Sandeep Sabnis, the best laparoscopic surgeon in Nashik, has loads of experience under his name and is a specialist when it comes to carrying out these laparoscopic surgeries. The post-operative recovery is speedy, offering you amazingly instant relief.
Any form of cancer is understandably worrying, and if it is related to the upper GI tract, it can be agonizingly painful. Stomach cancer typically occurs from the cells forming the stomach’s inner lining (the mucosa) and is medically termed adenocarcinoma. This cancer type can either partially affect the stomach or the entire stomach. It has also been observed that this type of cancer can also cause harm the lower part of the food pipe.
Patients affected by gastric cancer can experience any one or more of the following symptoms:
• Feeling full after having a small meal
• Nausea and vomiting
• Sudden weight loss
• Persistent heartburn
If you are showing any of the above signs and symptoms, you should consult a doctor. Your doctor may recommend some tests like specificblood tests, endoscopy, and CT scan for an accurate diagnosis.
Dr. Sabnis offers different treatment options for stomach cancer, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy,surgery, and targeted therapy. The treatment provided varies depending on the stage of cancer and the condition of the patient.
If cancer has been detected in the early stages, it can be cured by surgery with or without therapeutic intervention. The surgery not just involvesthe removal of the tumour but also gets rid of the adjacent lymph nodes. This form of radical surgery removes all the possible cancer cells and can be performed laparoscopically in the experienced hands of a renowned laparoscopic surgeon in Nashik. This minimally invasive surgery is less painful andhelps you to recover much earlier than what it takes in general surgery.
It is a form of tumour that can occur at any part of your intestinal tract, usually affecting the small intestine and the stomach. Although these tumours can be either slightly or highly malignant, most of them can be laparoscopically removed. You may, however, require some additional therapy both before and after the surgery.
