Treatment Opportunities In General Surgery

General surgery applications at NPİstanbul Brain Hospital

In NPİstanbul brain Hospital, laparoscopic (video endoscopic) and open surgical methods are performed in the operating rooms equipped with the latest technology.

It is decided after discussing with the patient about the most appropriate open or closed method that should be applied to the patient according to the type and degree of the patient's disease.

What is laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopy surgery, which is based on the principle of visualizing the abdominal organs by inserting a thin telescope through the belly button into the abdomen, is performed under general anesthesia. In laparoscopic surgery, which is also known as "closed", "knifeless" or "bloodless surgery" among the people, the opportunity to directly observe the disease or the problem is provided by illuminating the abdomen. In this method, if necessary, treatment is applied with auxiliary devices inserted through 3-5 mm holes opened to various points in the abdomen at the same time. By means of these devices, all of the abdominal organs can be enlarged and evaluated from a wider angle during surgery.


In what diseases is it applied?

Laparoscopy operations; obesity treatment, gallbladder, inguinal hernia, appendicitis, reflux, and stomach hernia, especially in many general surgical operations are successfully applied.

What are the advantages of laparoscopic surgery?


After surgery, the patient who feels a low level of pain that will not interfere with movement can get up in a short time. In this method, the patient's recovery and discharge time are shortened. A decrease in pain attracts attention as a very important comfort for the patient. It also has important advantages in terms of aesthetics. Problems such as surgical hernias that occur after large incisions also disappear.

In particular, the safest surgery for recurrent inguinal and abdominal hernias is performed laparoscopically. In internal repairs in terms of pressure loading, the pressure distribution is provided in the hernia region, by reducing the load. With this method, hernias that have previously recurred are repaired more safely.


What are the disadvantages of laparoscopic surgery?


Laparoscopic surgery should be performed depending on the factors of knowledge, skills, experience and use of technology. Missing these factors reduces the likelihood of success of the operation and can increase the victimization of the patient.


What is bariatric surgery?

All initiatives accepted in the world for obesity and diabetes surgery can be made by performing stomach reduction and intestine reduction operations that can be performed together.

These operations are not applied to every patient. In order for the operations to be successful, it is necessary to perform a detailed consultation before the operation.  A comprehensive diagnostic process is initiated based on the complaints of our patients with the surgical infrastructure facilities and multidisciplinary expert staff at Npistanbul brain Hospital. If our experts find it appropriate, the necessary surgical intervention is applied.


What types of patients can these operations be applied to?


These surgical interventions for the treatment of obesity and diabetes are applied to patients between the ages of 18 and 60. A detailed examination is carried out by a team consisting of Internal Medicine, a psychologist and a nutritionist before the operation. Body mass index (BMI), above 40, and less metabolic disease findings are the basis for evaluation.  These operations, which are not performed under the age of 18, can be performed according to the physical condition of the person in patients over the age of 60.


How is stomach reduction followed before surgery?

Operations performed in the treatment of obesity, such as stomach reduction, are necessarily performed in accordance with the personal characteristics and needs of the patient. After examining all aspects of the patient and determining whether he will benefit from the operations, the operation is performed. It is determined whether the patient will adapt after surgery. The patient is primarily taught about lifestyle after surgery and explains the differences he will experience within 1.5-2 years after surgery. After all these are reviewed and the patient is convinced, the operation is decided.


How long does it take to get results?

Fifty percent of excess weight is lost in the first 6 months after stomach reduction operations. 75% of excess weight is given in one year, including Fifty percent in the second 6 months. It is expected that the patient will reach the ideal weight after a year and a half.
