Surgeries are a very intrusive procedure used by surgeons to fix a problem in our body which is pathological. There are many different kinds of surgeries such as heart surgery, brain surgery and some surgeries performed for removal of tissues specimens known as biopsies. The level of complexity totally depends on the location of the surgery being performed and the mental and physical status of the patient. High level of care is taken to make sure the surgery room and equipment’s are sterilised because sometimes patients report post-surgery infections.
The first important procedure is to gain the consent of the patient in a written form and then prepare the patient for surgery. The location of the cut should be sterilised with alcohol or surgical spirit and if anaesthetics is required it must be administrated. For example if it is a gastric bypass surgery then the abdomen near to the opening of the anterior end of the stomach and the area near the jejunum must be cleaned.
A clean cut must be made to prevent blood loss and complications. This surgery is mainly preformed for people who want to lose weight and the mechanism is that the surgeons do not allow food to go into the stomach. Rather they let it pass through the intestines and because they are not broken down fewer nutrients can be absorbed so less fat and thereby allowing people to lose weight within no time. The payments for surgeries vary depending on the patient and doctor. Of course the patient could opt for his/her health insurance but sometimes even the insurance is not enough to cover the whole cost. So one could borrow some cash or even take a loan.
Gastric bypass cost could be high if the patient does the surgery in a private hospital and it is lower if done in a government hospital. The doctor’s charges can be reduced if the patient goes to a known doctor who maybe a close friend or relative but this reduction is quite rare. After any surgery is performed the patient has to come back to hospital now and then for a check-up. This is to make sure the surgery is effective and the there is no secondary infection during the surgery or even after. Sometimes the patient could even be prescribed a dose of antibiotics and pain killers. Make sure to get a list of dos and don’ts from the doctor so avoid unnecessary complications. Even a diet plan should be gotten depending on the surgery performed.
