What are the Various Surgical Procedures for GI at Vishesh Hospital?
Minimally Invasive GI Surgical Procedures
Our GI surgeries department offers minimally invasive surgery, or laparoscopic surgery, to operate with small incisions. With minimally invasive surgery, patients usually have less blood loss, lower risk of infection, less pain, and smaller scars.
Listed below are some forms of laparoscopic procedures that are done to treat GI conditions:
- Adrenalectomy - This method removes growth in the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are located on top of the kidneys and produce hormones required to properly support the bodywork.
- Appendectomy - This method is used to remove the appendix.
- Bariatric Surgery - This method helps in making the stomach smaller, which aids in weight loss.
- Cholecystectomy - This method treats gallstones by eliminating the gallbladder. It has few risks to it, and recovery time is generally short.
- Colon and Rectal Surgery - This type of surgery treats conditions of the large intestine (comprising the rectum, colon, and anus).
- Foregut Surgery - This is regularly adopted to treat conditions of the upper GI tract. It includes the esophagus, stomach, or upper segment of the small intestines.

A hiatal hernia is an opening in the diaphragm that might make the stomach or other abdominal organs move up into the chest. It can lead to heartburn, discomfort with eating, chest or abdominal pain, or shortness of breath.
- Nissen - This surgery is utilized to treat patients with severe gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD), also called gastric reflux. People who suffer from chronic acid reflux often describe feeling a burning sensation in their throats, chests, or mouths.
- Nephrectomy - This method can be used to eliminate a diseased or cancerous kidney.
- Pancreatic Surgery - Depending on the circumstances, this procedure can sometimes be implemented in treating different pancreatic conditions.

- Appendectomy - This is a routine emergency surgery to extract the appendix.
- Nissen fundoplication - This operation strengthens the muscle in between the stomach and esophagus tube. It is adapted to operate on patients with intense acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
