Gall Bladder stones
Gall Bladder Stones are widely known as ‘Gall Stones’. They are solid materials that form in the gall bladder, a small organ under the liver. They are usually associated with obesity, pregnancy or sudden weight loss. Usually, women are more likely to be affected by gall stones. Gall bladder stones are usually removed by surgery, as it is best to remove the gall bladder along with the stones.
Hemorrhoids are the swelling of veins in the rectum or anus. It is usually caused by increased pressure in the veins, and also due to the strain caused while trying to have a bowel movement. Any individual, irrespective of their age, can suffer from hemorrhoids, but it mostly occurs during 30-40 years. Women often get hemorrhoids during pregnancy because of the weight of the baby inside the womb.
Hernia is the bulging of the inner layer of the abdominal sac. It weakens the abdominal muscle and usually occurs in the groin, navel or in the region of a previous operation. Hernia repair is the surgical process to fix this problem, with small incisions made in the area adjoining the hernia.
Diagnostic Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure where doctors use a laparoscope to view intra-abdominal organs to detect pathology. During this procedure, a small incision is made in the abdominal region, allowing the doctor to view the entire abdomen and pelvic organs such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and other organs on a monitor.
