Surgical Specialists Help You Get Back on Your Feet

The thought of going under the knife might feel you with dread and make you worry constantly. When you select the right specialist, you can feel better and more confident about going through surgery. Surgery can help relieve the pain that you feel, reduce the problems associated with certain medical conditions and help you get back on your feet.

Types of Surgeries Available

Gallbladder surgery is one of the more common types of operations. The symptoms of a gallbladder attack may include an unexplained pain in your side, vomiting, nausea or pain when you use the bathroom. The doctor can use special tools to go in through your belly button and a few other incisions to remove your gallbladder quickly. You may find that you need surgery to remove a tumor on your rectum or on another part of your body. The doctor will ensure that you understand the surgery and what you need to do later.

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery, also known as Lap Band, is a type of surgery designed to help those who are overweight or obese lose weight safely. The doctor places a band around the stomach that reduces its size. This keeps the patient from eating more because the patient has less room in his or her stomach. Patients can lose 100 pounds or more after Lap Band. Bay Surgical Specialists and other local doctors and facilities can answer any questions that you might have before you schedule your surgery.
