Open appendectomy treatment at Shubham Hospital

At Shubham Hospital, we provide open appendectomy surgery to remove the appendix in patients with appendicitis. Our team of experienced surgeons uses advanced techniques and technology to perform the procedure safely and effectively, with a focus on minimizing discomfort and promoting a quick recovery.

What is Open Appendectomy?

Open appendectomy is a surgical procedure that involves making an incision in the abdomen to remove the appendix. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes between one and two hours.

Why is Open Appendectomy Performed?

Open appendectomy is performed to treat appendicitis, which is a condition that occurs when the appendix becomes inflamed and infected. If left untreated, appendicitis can lead to a ruptured appendix and potentially life-threatening complications.

What to Expect During Open Appendectomy at Shubham Hospital?

At Shubham Hospital, our team of experienced surgeons will thoroughly explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so you will be asleep during the procedure.

During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision in the abdomen to access the appendix. The appendix is then carefully removed, and the incision is closed with stitches or staples. After the surgery, you will be taken to the recovery room where you will be monitored closely until you wake up.

Our Post-Operative Care for Open Appendectomy

After the surgery, you will need to stay in the hospital for a few days to recover. Our team of healthcare professionals will closely monitor your progress and provide pain medication as needed. You may experience some pain or discomfort in the abdomen, but this can usually be managed with pain medication.

You will be given instructions on how to care for the incision site, including keeping it clean and dry. You will also be advised on when you can resume normal activities, such as driving and work.

Our treatments

Medical Grade Chemical Peels use an enzymatic solution to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers. Doing so helps to reduce acne caused by blocked pores meanwhile smoothing the texture and therefore appearance of the skin. With varying strengths of peel, there is something for almost all skin types.

Spectra Peel is a highly effective laser acne treatment and virtually painless. Its action is two-pronged.

First, it works on your acne deep in that important layer of skin known as the dermis, promoting cell regeneration and reducing inflammation. Then it treats the active acne on the surface by gently eliminating dead skin cells, clearing plugged pores, shrinking oil-producing glands and stimulating new skin growth.

You will likely need to start with six Spectra Peel sessions and then visit us two or three times a year for maintenance sessions.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) skin treatment is a natural therapy utilising your body’s own blood to promote skin healing. The natural chemicals in PRP generated from your own blood are applied to the face and micro-needled into the skin during a short procedure. Using the healing effects of your body’s own plasma and the essential chemicals provided in the PRP formula allows accelerated promotion of skin rejuvenation, tightening and smoothing where you want it most.

Utilising state of the art gold plated microneedle technology, we are able to deliver heat into the surface of the skin in safe and short time frames. Shorter treatment time means more efficiency and less discomfort for you. By providing uniform heat under the skin dermis, collagen production is stimulated leading to renewed skin growth.

The best pre-treatment for severe cases of acne.

Medi-facials (based on chemical peels) and LED therapy combine to eliminate bacteria that trigger inflammation. This approach also reduces the size of your pores, stabilises oil production and stimulates the growth of healthy cells.

You will see visible results as your troublesome breakouts, congestion and blackheads will clear, improving your overall appearance.
