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.
Some patients will have dissolvable stitches, whereas others return after 7 days to have them removed. Patients who have open surgery will need a longer recovery time.
A colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine, the colon and rectum, using a small camera.
Patients should arrive at least 2 days before the colonoscopy, as the bowel needs to be cleared the day before the procedure. Patients who have interventional treatment during the colonoscopy, e.g. removal of a polyp, may need slightly longer to recover.

Gastric ballon treatment involves inserting a deflated ballon into the stomach and then inflating it, in order to help lose weight. The balloon serves the purpose of limiting food intake by taking up space in the stomach and thus creating a sense of fullness after eating small amounts of food.
Patients may experience some pain, nausea or discomfort in the first days after insertion, therefore may need to rest before traveling.
Gastric band surgery is a weight-loss surgery which uses an inflatable silicone band to create a small gastric pouch in the stomach, slowing down food consumption and limiting food intake. The surgery is performed to help patients with weight-loss after non-surgical methods such as change of diet and regular exercise, have failed to produce results.
The doctor should ensure that the patients condition is stable enough to travel.
Gastric sleeve surgery, which may also be referred to as sleeve gastrectomy, is a type of weight-loss surgery in which a large part of the stomach is removed. As a result, the remaining stomach is only around 25% of the size, meaning patients must eat smaller portions, and must modify their diet.
After gastric sleeve surgery, the patient will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
Myringoplasty, also referred to as tympanoplasty, is a surgical procedure to repair a perforated eardrum (the tympanic membrane) usually caused by infection or trauma.
The surgeon should ensure that eardrum has healed before the patient can fly, as changes in air pressure will affect the eardrum.
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 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.

Spinal discs are connected to the vertebrae in the spine, separating each of the vertebrae and acting as a cushion to absorb shock and protect the vertebrae and nerves. The discs have a soft interior filled with a gel-like fluid, which is covered with a harder exterior. A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc, occurs when the disc's exterior becomes damaged which enables the soft interior to push its way out of the disc. This applies pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, which can cause pain in the back, neck, legs, arms, or buttocks.

Verified Review This review was provided by a patient that booked using the MEDIGO platform. It was submitted through our internal review system and is 100% genuine
The reception staff were helpful and polite.
The consultation by Dr. Lukasz Ulatowski for otoplasty was professional. The doctor was very honest in discussing the risks, the benefits, and the risk of recurrence.
In my specific case, he advised me not to operate the soft tissue of the lobe. For this reason he reimbursed the deposit we had paid in advance.
Very, very correct.
Il personale della reception si è dimostrato disponibile e cortese.
La visita effettuata dal dottor Lukasz Ulatowski per otoplastica è stata professionale.
Il professore ha rimarcato bene il rischio beneficio dell'operazione e molto onestamente anche il rischio di recidiva.
Nel nostro caso specifico ci ha consigliato di non operare i tessuti molli del lobo e per questo motivo ci ha fatto rimborsare interamente la percella della visita che avevamo pagato anticipatamente.
Molto, molto corretto
