Treatments, operations and tests

Acid reflux is caused by high acid levels in the stomach preventing the proper sealing of esophagus. The acid to travel upwards and burn the esophagus, irritating the lining and can cause a burning sensation. Surgical intervention is recommended when changes in lifestyle and diet have proved ineffective. Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasion procedure to reinforce the seal by wrapping part of the stomach around the lower esophagus.
Gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy) surgery is usually performed laparoscopically (keyhole), using a laparoscope. The surgeon removes your gall bladder with the aid of a small camera which is inserted into the abdomen via one of a number of small incisions in the abdomen. It is now a relatively common procedure which requires only a short time in hospital.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAGB) is purely restrictive weight loss surgery. Restrictive forms of weight loss surgery such as LAGB promote weight loss by limiting food intake and promoting a feeling of fullness (satiety) after meals. The LAGB surgery was developed for bariatric patients who wanted a safer, less complex alternative to gastric bypass surgery.During laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery, two medical devices are implanted into the body
Gastric bypass procedures (GBP) are any of a group of similar operations that first divides the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remnant" pouch and then re-arranges the small intestine to allow both pouches to stay connected to it. Surgeons have developed several different ways to reconnect the intestine, thus leading to several different GBP names. Any GBP leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach, accompanied by an altered physiological and physical response to food.
An epigastric hernia happens when a weakness in the abdominal muscle allows the tissues of the abdomen to protrude through the muscle. An epigastric hernia is usually present at birth, and may heal without treatment as the infant grows and the abdominal muscles strengthen. An epigastric hernia is similar to a umbilical hernia, except the umbilical hernia forms around the belly button and the epigastric hernia is usually between the belly button and the chest.
Femoral hernias occur just below the inguinal ligament, when abdominal contents pass through a naturally occurring weakness called the femoral canal. Femoral hernias are a relatively uncommon type, accounting for only 3% of all hernias. While femoral hernias can occur in both males and females, almost all of them develop in women because of the wider bone structure of the female pelvis. Femoral hernias are more common in adults than in children. Those that do occur in children are more likely to be associated with a connective tissue disorder or with conditions that increase intra-abdominal pressure.
A hernia is a weakness in the stomach or abdominal wall. There are various forms of treatment - open hernia surgery using a mesh to repair the weakness, and keyhole surgery which may enable you to return to normal activities sooner.
A hernia occurs when the abdominal muscle weakens, resulting in a bulge or tear through which tissue can be pressed and cause extreme pain. Laparoscopic techniques require a small incision and the insertion of a camera/tool to repair the hernia through surgical staples and patches. While the incision is minimal and generally performed as an outpatient procedure it requires a general anaesthetic.
The hernia pouch or sac is the lining of the inside of the tummy wall. It pushes through the weakness at the tummy button. The sac has a fatty covering and inside there may be bowel or fatty tissue called omentum. The sac steadily gets larger and can be painful. The bowel and omentum may get stuck in the sac. Their blood supply can be cut off and the bowel and omentum can strangulate and die. This causes vomiting, great pain and is very serious. Umbilical hernias are very common and easily treated, particularly when small. If treated when they are small, this will prevent strangulation and make the strongest repair.

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
