A myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove fibroids from the uterus. Uterine fibroids are growths which are non-cancerous that form on the uterus. Fibroids are removed as they can cause vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, lower back pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and constipation.
Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.
Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.
Glaucoma treatment aims to relieve symptoms of glaucoma and prevent further damage, deterioration, and loss of vision. Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes damage to the optic nerve, which creates problems with vision and if left untreated, can lead to loss of vision.
Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK) is a type of laser eye surgery used to correct eyesight. LASEK laser eye surgery combines the techniques of LASIK eye surgery and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) surgery. Like other laser eye surgeries, LASEK can correct short-sighted and long-sighted vision, as well as correcting astigmatism. There is a reduced chance of getting dry eyes after LASEK eye surgery, in comparison to LASIK eye surgery.
LASEK eye surgery is recommended for patients with thin corneas as the surgery does not involve creating a flap on the cornea which is part of LASIK eye surgery. In LASEK eye surgery, a blade is used to create and incision in the cornea, rather than creating a flap, and the outer layer of the cornea is then lifted, and the laser is applied to reshape the cornea.
Patients can usually fly soon after LASEK, but should take precautions to avoid dryness of the eye.
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 knee replacement is a surgical procedure in which damaged surfaces in the knee joint, or else the whole knee joint, are replaced with metal and plastic components. There are 2 types of knee replacement surgeries: total knee replacement (TKR) and partial knee replacement (PKR).
