Open Surgical Procedure



Cyst Excision

When a cyst is intact, an excision is typically the best removal procedure. In these cases, it's important to remove the sack around the contents. We make an incision around the cyst to take out the entire cyst wall and contents. We stitch it up and let it heal.





Circumcision

Circumcision is a procedure that removes the foreskin from the human penis. In the most common form of the operation, the foreskin is extended with forceps, then a circumcision device may be placed, after which the foreskin is excised.



Lipoma Excision

The lipoma is dissected from the surrounding tissue using scissors or a scalpel. Once a portion of lipoma has been dissected from the surrounding tissue, hemostats or clamps can be attached to the tumor to provide traction for removal of the remainder of the growth.





Abscess drainage

Healing could take a week or two, depending on the size of the abscess. During this time, new skin will grow from the bottom of the abscess and from around the sides of the wound.




Open Hernia Repair(Mesh Hernioplasty)

Hernia repair surgery or herniorrhaphy involves returning the displaced tissues to their proper position. Hernioplasty is a type of hernia repair surgery where a mesh patch is sewn over the weakened region of tissue. Hernia repair surgery is one of the most common surgeries to be performed.





Umblical Hernia Repair

During umbilical hernia repair, the surgeon makes a small cut of about 2 to 3cm at the base of the belly button and pushes the fatty lump or loop of bowel back into the tummy. The muscle layers at the weak spot in the abdominal wall where the hernia came through are stitched together to strengthen them.



Incisional Hernia Repair

The lipoma is dissected from the surrounding tissue using scissors or a scalpel. Once a portion of lipoma has been dissected from the surrounding tissue, hemostats or clamps can be attached to the tumor to provide traction for removal of the remainder of the growth.





Open Appendectomy

With a laparoscopic surgery, a patient is often able to resume normal activities in one to three weeks. An open surgery may require about two to four weeks for recovery. With a ruptured appendix, it may take up to six weeks or more.
