Colectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all or part of the colon (also called the large intestine). It is performed in order to treat or prevent certain diseases and conditions such as uncontrollable bleeding in the colon, a bowel obstruction, colon cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and diverticulitis.
A hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat hemorrhoids which are painful and do not respond to other non-surgical treatments.
Some doctors may want to follow-up with the patient 2 - 3 weeks later, however patients should discuss if they need to fly sooner.
A dermatology consultation is a meeting with a dermatologist, to discuss a specific skin problem and explore treatment options. A dermatologist specializes in treating skin, hair, and nails. Common conditions which patients may consult with a dermatologist about are psoriasis, acne treatment, mole removal, and laser skin resurfacing treatment.
An appendectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the appendix. The appendix is located where the small and large intestine meet and its function is not known. The appendix is usually removed as an emergency procedure when the patient has appendicitis, which is the inflammation of the appendix.
This procedure treats a Bartholin's cyst through incision and drainage. A Bartholin's cyst is a small fluid filled sac just inside the vagina. The cyst forms on the Bartholin's gland which is a gland that produces fluid that lubriates the vagina, when the glands become blocked. The cyst ranges in size and generally varies between the size of a pea, to the size of marble. If the Bartholin's cyst becomes infected, it is usually referred to as a Bartholin's abscess and generally requires drainage.
It is usually safe to fly afterwards, but depending on the type of procedure, there may be a follow up visit required - e.g. to remove a drainage catheter.
Breast cancer treatment varies depending on the stage of the cancer and whether or not the cancer has spread. Cancer occurs when there is an abnormality in cell growth, which causes the cells to divide and grow quickly when the cell should die to make room for new cells.
The time spent abroad will depend on the treatment. If chemotherapy or radiotherapy are the methods of treatment, then multiple sessions are likely to be required which may mean a longer stay than with surgery.
Abdominoplasty, also referred to as a "tummy tuck", is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin that has lost its elasticity and to create a firmer and more defined abdomen. The procedure is most commonly performed on women who have excess skin from previous pregnancies, or on patients who have lost a lot of weight and want excess skin removed.

An arm lift, also referred to as a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to firm and reshape the upper arms. The surgeon may use liposuction to remove excess fat and skin and reposition the remaining skin to tighten it.

A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove the gallbladder. The gallbladder is an organ located below the liver, which serves the function of collecting and storing bile, which is the fluid produced by the liver, before breaking it down and releasing it into the small intestine.
