Hysterectomy Removal of Uterus, Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes Surgery
Your doctor has recommended that you have a hysterectomy with the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. But what does that actually mean Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus the organ that holds and protects the fetus during pregnancy. Hysterectomy often also involves the removal of other parts of the reproductive system, including the ovaries where eggs are produced the fallopian tubes which carry the eggs to the uterus and the cervix or neck of the uterus. There are many different reasons why a doctor may recommend this kind of surgery.
Patient Education In many cases, disease or the growth of abnormal tissue will lead a doctor to recommend the removal of the uterus, the ovaries and fallopian tubes. In some cases, unusually heavy menstrual flow and the accompanying discomfort may make hysterectomy an important treatment option for patient and physician to consider. But no matter what the reason behind it, you should be aware that the removal of the uterus and other reproductive organs is a serious step and it can mean significant changes in your life. Patient Education After having a hysterectomy, you will not be able to have children and if because your.
Ovaries are removed as part of the procedure, you may even need to take medication to replace hormones that your body once produced on its own. So make sure that you ask your doctor to carefully explain the reasons behind this recommendation. After allowing a few minutes for the anesthetic to take affect your doctor will decide whether to make a vertical or horizontal incision. An incision is made cutting through the skin and muscle of the abdomen. Next, the surgeon will inspect the general condition of the abdominal organs. Once the ovaries are exposed the uterus can then be separated from the bladder.
All arteries, veins and ligaments connected to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes are tied off and cut. Now the uterus can be pulled upward. This stretches the vagina allowing the surgeon to cut the uterus free at the cervix. The surgeon closes the top of the vagina with stitches, and provides added support by attaching the ligaments that once held the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes in place. The incision is then closed and a drainage tube may be left inserted at the site. Finally, a sterile bandage is applied.
Dr. Paul MacKoul MD Makes Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal Possible Helenes Story
I have been suffering from fibroids and endometriosis for over 20 years, and I had very intense pain, back problems, lower stomach problems, headaches from being so anemic. And it controlled my life. I think my first procedure was probably '95. And so since '95, I've been going through different procedures with different doctors, and nothing worked. I would do the surgery, and I would be fine for a month or two. And then I would say the longest I've ever been OK was for three months, and then bam here it comes again.
One of the doctors that I went into, he told me that the best advice that he could give me was to just go ahead and have a hysterectomy. And then he started laughing and said that that was his best advice for the day. And then I told him, thanks, but no thanks. And I walked out. I had a cyst rupture on my right ovary. And I ended up in the emergency room where I had to do surgeries to remove my appendix, because it kind of fused my appendix and my fallopian tube together.
After I got out of that surgery, my GYN at the time, she told me, I want you to go and see Dr. MacKoul. She said, this is the only doctor the only doctor that I want you to see. I went in to see Dr. MacKoul. He was pleasant, and he took the time out to explain to me what was going on and do all his little drawings. Dr. MacKoul recommended a LAAM myomectomy, because I wanted to retain my uterus. He told me if I had any questions just to call him,.
And he would explain anything that I didn't quite understand. Then he actually came and sat with me before I actually was taken in for the surgery. And he went over again what we're going to be doing, and then he told my family to just trust him. I was in good hands. I did not come across a specialist until I actually met Dr. MacKoul. Not only did he tell me what my problem was, not only did he tell me what mistakes had been done with my surgeries prior.
That caused my endometriosis to get worse but he fixed the problem. I haven't had any pain no back problems, no stomach problems, no headaches. I finally decided it was time for me to do what I wanted to do. Three months later, my dad had asked me, would I go with him to Africa. And I told him, sure, and so we went to Africa for a month. This was something that I would not have done prior to having the surgery. The energy that I didn't feel I had before to be able to do.
My master's, now I'm working on my master's. I have the energy where I'm doing my master's, working, and also helping my niece with her homework, and now having to travel with her to go to her different events. I wish I had met Dr. MacKoul before. I wish I had heard about him before I went through all those other procedures. But looking back, with everything that I went through, I'm always telling other people about Dr. MacKoul. He is a true specialist. He is the only specialist I would recommend.
Dilation and Curettage D C Surgery PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Youtu.beJiaqOtVna1g Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a Dilation and Curettage, or D and C. But what does that actually mean The uterus is part of a woman's reproductive system. It's the organ that contains the growing fetus. The cervix forms the neck of the uterus, and the vagina is the canal through which conception and birth take place. The endometrium is a soft lining that protects the fetus during pregnancy. Reasons for having a D and C vary. Most D and C's are performed because the patient has complained of unusually heavy menstrual bleeding.
Other common problems include, uterine infection, bleeding after sexual intercourse, incomplete miscarriage or the presence of polyps small pieces of extra tissue growing on the inside of the uterine wall. Then the surgeon will use a gloved hand to conduct a vaginal examination and will check the size and location of the uterus by pressing on your lower abdomen. A metal or plastic vaginal speculum is used to gently expand the vagina and allow access to the cervix. Once the cervix is visible, a forcep is used to grasp the front lip of the cervix causing.
The uterus to open a little. Using a blunttipped probe, the surgeon carefully measures the length of the uterus and takes a small sample of tissue from the cervical canal. Next, the surgeon will dilate, or open the cervix, using a series of progressively larger metal rods called dilators. When the cervix has expanded sufficiently, the doctor will use a spoonshaped instrument called a curette to gently scrape out the lining of the uterus. In some cases, surge When the entire lining of the uterus has been removed, the instruments are withdrawn.

Revolutionary scalpelfree surgery
For Tony Lightfoot, just trying to enjoy a muffin and coffee is a major challenge. He's had essential tremor disorder for more than ten years. Quality of life has really taken a nosedive. And eating, my wife often has to feed me with a spoon, especially the last bit on the plate. But that could all change today, as Tony is the fifth patient at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre to undergo a groundbreaking new procedure. Doctors will be operating deep inside his brain without making any incisions. Dr. Michael Schwartz is leading the study on this new scalpelfree.
Surgery for patient with essential tremor, which is the most common movement disorder. The procedure that we do is MRguided focused ultrasound, and we direct the focus to the target that we would like to ablate. That means making a small hole in the brain to damage the brain in fact in one area to interupt a circuit that's bad for the patient and in this case is causing tremor. Before the treatment begins, doctors do a final tremor assessment, where Tony can't even hold a glass of water. He is also asked to copy the swirl on the left. This image shows his attempts on the right.
After his head is shaved, Tony is fitted with a frame, which is then placed inside a special helmetlike device. It was manufactured by Insightec, based on research of scientists at Sunnybrook and in Boston, and helps guide the surgical team with the help of MRI images. Tony stays awake so surgeons can test his progress between each ablation, or zap to the brain. You can visibly see how over the course of the procedure, his hand becomes progressively more stable. Doctors are only able to treat one side and focus ont he dominant hand to help improve.
Each patient's quality of life. So far, Dr. Schwartz says, every patient has shown improvement. We are very impressed with the efficacy of the procedure. So far it's been perfectly safe and we look forward to using it for other applications as well. That may include cancers and tumours of the breast, bone, head, neck and rectum, as well as facial pain. In addition to no incisions and no general anesthetic, patients go home within one day, and return to activities of daily living almost immediately. Frank Winnacott had the procedure in the fall and says, it's.
Made a world of difference. Being able to feel comfortable in company. I play bridge. I like to hold my cards I like to deal them properly. It's nice. After several hours, Tony is brought out for his postprocedure assessment, where the effect is crystal clear. When is the last time you did that More than ten years ago. I'm happy, he's happy. It was a good thing today. Studies on the MRguided focused ultrasound will be ongoing, but so far, this trial suggests that surgery without scalpels is a cut above. With Sunnyview, I'm Monica Matys.
Generations Fertility Care Dr. Dan Lebovic on robotic myomectomy
Gtgt Many patients of ours, one of the reasons why perhaps they could not conceive is because they have a fibroid in their uterus. It's sort of a growth of the muscle portion of the uterus, that is sort of ballshaped. And if it interferes with the lining of the uterus, that is thought to not be good for pregnancies. The pregnancy rate is lower. It's not impossible to conceive, but the pregnancy rate is certainly decreased. It has also been shown that removing these fibroids can help, especially the ones that are within the canal.
When you have a large fibroid on the outside of the uterus, conventionally used to operate these by making a large incision on the abdomen, which requires hospitalization afterward for about three days, and a longer postoperative recovery in terms of pain relief. A newer procedure is to use a robot that controls laparoscopic instruments at the bed side, so that the surgeon is actually away from the bed side, but controlling the ends of the instrument, as if their hands were inside of the abdomen of the woman. Therefore, making it a lot easier to control placing sutures and tying them very carefully.
So we have been using that here, the robot myomectomy technology for patients that get referred with these larger type fibroids, you know, between 3 cm and up to 10 cm can actually be accomplished just with small incisions, socalled keyhole surgery. It's sameday surgery. Sometimes they stay just overnight, but they leave the next morning. But they're able to recover a lot quicker. Aesthetically it looks quite nice in terms of larger incision. And most likely less pain from that as well. The magic of the robot is that really it is almost as if our hand is.
In that patient's abdomen, in the pelvis, working on the pathology of note, in this case fibroids. It was developed so that the ends of the instruments actually articulate much like the hand, and so to place sutures, if you didn't know any better, you would think it was someone's hand in there placing the sutures, at almost any angle. In fact, it almost makes it easier because the tremor is removed by the instrument. It's just built into the technology. And it's a lot easier if you're right handed t even place sutures.

General Biopsy Surgery PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a biopsy procedure or lumpectomy. But what does that actually mean Biopsy is a general term which simply means the removal of tissue for microscopic examination. Your doctor intends to remove tissue from your body, not because you're necessarily ill, but because biopsy is a very accurate method for analyzing unusual growths or other suspicious tissue. Because it provides such accurate diagnostic information, biopsy is an important diagnostic tool in the fight against cancer. In your case, you have a suspicious lump or other tissue which needs to be examined. It.
May have been felt by you or your doctor.. or spotted using other diagnostic tools such as xray. Let's take a moment to look at the reasons why lumps or growths form. The body is made of many different kinds of tissues and those tissues are all subject to change during the course of a normal lifetime. Usually, a thickening or lump turns out to be benign, or harmless, and often requires no treatment. In some cases, lumps are malignant tumors, caused by the growth of cancerous cells. These growths need to be treated as rapidly as possible.
In order to learn more about the nature of the suspicious tissue, your doctor would like to surgically remove it. Most likely, you're feeling some anxiety about this procedure, which is perfectly understandable. You should realize that it's natural to feel apprehensive about any kind of biopsy. But ignoring a suspicious growth won't make it go away. If you're feeling anxious, try to remember that the purpose of a biopsy is simply to find out what is going on in your body so that if you do have a problem, it can be diagnosed.
And treated as quickly as possible. If you should decide not to allow your doctor to perform the biopsy, you'll be leaving yourself at risk for medical problems. If the suspicious tissue in your breast is benign, most likely you'll suffer few if any complications. However, if it is cancerous, and it is allowed to grow unchecked you might be putting your own life at risk. The bottom line trust that your doctor is recommending this procedure for your benefit and above all don't be afraid to ask questions raised by this tutorial and to talk openly about.
Your concerns. After allowing a few minutes for the anesthetic to take effect, the surgeon will make a small incision. Once the incision has been made, your doctor will begin looking for the lump. You will feel some pressure or even slight tugging or pulling but you should not feel any sharp pain. Once the lump is removed, the doctor will close the skin over the incision as neatly and as cosmetically as they are able. Finally, a sterile dressing is applied. Your tissue specimen will be sent immediately to a lab for microscopic analysis. Your doctor.
