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.
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.
Adrenalectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove one or both of the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are located above each kidney and are part of the endocrine system, responsible for releasing hormones into the body, in order to regulate the immune system, metabolism, and blood sugar levels.
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.
Brain aneurysm repair is a surgical procedure performed to repair a brain aneurysm that has the potential to rupture, or has already ruptured.
Time spent abroad depends on the type of brain aneurysm being treated. Unruptured aneurysms tend to have a quicker recovery process than ruptured aneurysms.
Brain tumor surgery is performed by a neurosurgeon to remove all or part of a tumor from the brain.
This depends on the surgery performed, whether the patient needs rehabilitation, and on how well the patient recovers.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin which covers the glans penis (the tip of the penis). The procedure can be done by cutting around the foreskin with a scalpel, under either a local or general anesthetic. In young patients, there is also the option to use a compression ring, which is applied and causes the foreskin to fall off after several weeks.
Although patients can usually fly straight away, it may be uncomfortable sitting for a long flight.
Angiography, which may also be referred to as arteriography or angiogram, is a procedure performed to examine the inside of blood vessels, arteries, and veins through the use of images X-ray images.

Great experience, after four visits, it was possible to get the root canal done for my daughter. We needed this time to have the infection reduced in her teeth. Dr. Sajjad did a great job in handling the situation and in dealing with my daughter, she does not mind visiting the dentist again and again. Additionally, the doctor did his best in explaining to us the different parts of treatment and in providing support materials in understanding the teeth growth / teeth problems.
As well I would like to thank all the staff for the professional and nice work they did.
Started well as a hospital trying to capture customers especially in an area where there is a lot of hospitals.
Nowadays after a few years around, confidence built up and customer service went down to the lowest of its levels and going worse day by day, Knowing that myself, wife and two kids attend the hospital since its opening.
What's worse is that things are getting worse day by day and nothing is being done about it (i.e: ipads which were once used to capture customer feedback are not working since a long time, which is a very strong indicator of the take customers for granted mindset!)
Pharmacy gives the worst of experiences of all with very unprofessional and uncourteous or rather unprofessional and untrained staff (except exceptions).
Hysterectomy.This procedure ruined my life. Unless you have cancer, you do not agree to having your ovaries removed. We need them till the end. Go to as many doctors possible for other opinions. Looking back,I regret agreeing to having them removed without a proper tests done on them. I was not made aware of what I will be mostly go through after surgery. I was not given any after care advices. I went through a lot of infections and down moments in my life after surgery and my gynecologist Dr Usha Kiran only tell me every time: these are part of the healing process or it happens! My bones and joints started paining and producing sound, shortness of breath due to anxiety attacks and extreme pelvic pain, depression, all I was given were antibiotics. I felt Dr Usha let me down after surgery. After 4 months of continously being unwell post surgery I knew I needed more than antibiotics so I decided to seek help from other doctors.This time I was prescribed hormones and lots of supplements to help me cope with my sudden menopause due to removal of my ovaries but moreso to increase my immune system. I'm feeling better now but not fully recovered even months after. I still suffer from constant pain, can't run can't jump can't lift anything heavy.
Make sure you read blogs of people who've been through this procedure before you decide your fate. I regret the day I signed that consent form. My life changed dramatically.
This is my personal experience and opinion.

My Doctor is Dr. Usha I'm very satisfied with her, she makes me feel comfortable and explain everything that I need to know about the procedure that was done to me. I even recommended my friend to see her . She is a very good Doctor. Thank you Doc.
