Know about Hernia

April 13, 2015 0 81 1 minute, 47 seconds read

Hernia is a protrusion of body organ through a weak area or a natural orifice through which it does not pass ordinarily.

Usually the term hernia mean abdominal wall hernia. It occurs due to a weakness in abdominal wall. It may be congenital (by birth) or acquired.

Swelling or a bulge is noticed when patient strains or stands. Some hernias cause pain or some do not cause any pain. First sign may be a bulge. You may have discomfort or dragging pain.

What causes hernia?

The common causes are:

  • Straining while defecating as in chronic constipation
  • Excessive coughing
  • Over strenuous exercises
  • Smoking causes coughing and deficiency of collagen tissue which causes weakness of abdominal wall

Why is hernia surgery required?

Hernia causes pain and discomfort & can cause dangerous complication such as intestinal obstruction, strangulation (hampering of blood supply) and gangrene (tissue death) which are life threatening conditions. It never gets cured itself.

Hernia operation is essentially done to:

  • Replace the protruded organ back to the abdominal cavity.
  • Repair the weak area of abdominal wall through which protrusion occurs.

Usually the hernia operation is performed by either of the two following techniques

  • Open Tension-free Hernia Repair: A prosthesis such as polypropylene mesh is introduced from outside to cover the defect. Open operation may be done under local anaesthesia.
  • Laparoscopic Hernia Repair: A prosthesis such as polypropylene mesh is use to cover the defect through abdominal cavity. Laparoscopic hernia repair is under general anaesthesia. Nowadays local anaesthesia used is long acting, so the effect lasts for 4 to 6 hours. The patient walks out of operation theatre and is soon discharged.

If I do not go for hernia surgery, then can it cause any harm?

Usually hernia is a reducible bulge and goes back to abdomen on lying or on manipulation. Hernia can lead to the following complications:

  • Irreducibility- Hernia cannot be pushed back into the abdomen.
  • Obstruction – Intestine in hernia is blocked.
  • Incarceration – hernia is painful and not reducible.
  • Strangulation – pain, vomiting and inability to pass flatus and stool develops. Blood supply of the intestine is cut off.
  • The intestine loop dies. It is dangerous and life threatening condition

Advanced Laser Treatment for Piles, Fissures & Fistula

February 13, 2018 0 8945 1 minute, 58 seconds read

A Proctology Clinic with an emphasis on LASER based treatment for anorectal conditions has been started. The aim of the clinic is to help the patients get over the fear of surgery and find a solution for the problem.

Hemorrhoids also called as piles is a very common problem but not many people talk about it and continue to suffer without even seeking medical advice, trying alternative therapies as they are afraid of surgical procedures. At our centre more than 75% patients are treated without surgery with modern techniques. in an outpatient basis.

The New Outpatient Treatment Modalities

IRC - Infra Red Coagulation - THE OFFICE TREATMENT

The infrared coagulator is for outpatient treatment of internal first and second degree piles. It is the most effective non surgical treatment modality. They give very good results with no side effects. These procedures are painless. Do not need more than 30 minutes in the clinic. These procedures are called office treatment in the western world, meaning you come from your office during the break, get the treatment done and go back to your office.


Diode Laser 980nm / 1470nm 15W is used in proctology

It is a day care procedure performed under anesthesia in 30minutes post which the patient can be discharged. Laser energy is delivered by radial fiber directly in the sub mucosal hemorrhoidal nodes to shrink the nodes from inside. Moreover, laser energy is used to reduce the blood supply nourishing the abnormal growth. LASER surgery prevents the occurrence or recurrence of a prolapse.

Formal surgical intervention may sometimes be required called Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy (MIPH).

Even at the cost of being repetitive the advantages have to be stressed:

  • Low pain score
  • Can resume work immediately
  • Aesthetically the best procedures – helps as patient confidence builder.
  • The anal sphincter action is well preserved, so no chances of incontinence or fecal leak.
  • Less risk involved as minimal bleeding.
  • Time taken to complete procedure is only 10 to 15 minutes in outpatient department.
  • Can be performed as same day procedure.
  • Less post operative discomfort to patient
  • Faster recovery
  • Happy patient

At Max Multi Speciality Centre, Panchsheel Park you tap into our expertise and trust. We carefully choose the medical procedure and treatment required for you. Our top grade LASER devices are used by Expert LASER Surgeons to offer effective, minimally invasive, safer and least painful treatment to you.
