Spinal Tumor 2. Colostomy Closure 3. Lung Cancer 4. Urinary disorders 1. SPINAL TUMOR The specialty of spine surgery encompasses a complete range of spinal disorders and injuries. A spinal surgeon must be well-versed in the function and placement of all elements of the spine and the many surgical procedures used. The primary reasons for spinal surgery include the surgical treatment of disc prolapse, degenerative changes, traumas, or congenital spinal deformities. It is also suggested in bony spine abnormalities such as scoliosis. A spinal tumor is abnormal tissue growth inside or around the spinal cord and spinal column. These cells expand and replicate uncontrollably, unaffected by the systems that regulate normal cells. Spinal tumors can be benign or malignant. Primary tumors develop in the spine or spinal cord, whereas metastatic or secondary tumors develop due to cancer spreading from another to the spine. Experts at Clinique Bois-Cerf have been educated to provide appropriate therapy based on the kind of tumors. Surgeons will give nonsurgical treatments like observation, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Regular MRIs can be used to evaluate and monitor silent or slightly symptomatic tumors that do not appear to be changing or advancing. If patients at the hospital have a resistant tumor, they are offered surgery. Surgeons can directly cure tumors formed in the spine, and they achieve this by skill and removing it altogether. Surgery is often recommended for patients with metastases who are likely to live 3 – 4 months or longer and whose tumor is resistant to radiation or chemotherapy. Intractable pain, spinal cord compression, and the need to stabilize pathological fractures are all indications for surgery. 2. COLOSTOMY CLOSURE Colostomy closure is performed under a general anesthetic. Thus, it is during sleep and is pain-free. It can be done by a significant surgical cut in the belly or using a tiny camera and multiple minor scratches. This new technique is used at the Clinique Bois-Cerf by trained surgeons. Bowel resection or repair is performed as needed. One end of the healthy colon is pulled out via an incision in the abdominal wall for the colostomy, commonly on the left side. The bowel's borders are sewn to the skin of the opening. A colostomy is closed three to four months after the repair. This way, the wound would have healed, and the gut would have started to function. The closure is offered to patients with temporary stomas, which means patients who suffer from infections, blockage, or inflammation. This hospital thrives in finding better and innovative ways to help patients. Thus, it is the leading name when it comes to Colostomy closure. Patients are not permitted to eat or drink anything until the intestine functions correctly following surgery. They usually begin passing gas and stool from the rectum within 24 to 48 hours, although it can take 72 hours. Patients are frequently released from the hospital on the third- or fourth-day following surgery. Sutures are used to close the stoma in the abdomen (stitches). Clinique Bois-Cerf uses sutures that remain beneath the skin and dissolve on their own when the wound heals. The doctor won't have to remove them, reducing patient aftercare and traveling. 3. LUNG CANCER Respiratory medicine focuses on the airways, from the lungs' form, function, and organs that transport air, such as the bronchi and trachea. A respiratory medicine expert can perform a variety of specialized examinations, such as utilizing endoscopes in the airways to determine the source of breathing issues or to collect tissue samples. They can examine the lungs and, if necessary, arrange for X-rays to be taken of them. If lung diseases necessitate surgery, the respiratory medicine expert will collaborate with the thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons. Lung cancer is when the tumor is no longer benign, and it is starting to infiltrate large parts of the lung and cause severe compromise. Constrictions caused by tumors can now be eliminated using laser surgery, and 'stents' can be inserted into the airways to keep them open. The respiratory experts at Clinique Bois-Cerf are well-trained and exceedingly caring. They recognize how upsetting the news is and provide moral support to their patients. Specialists carry out several tests to obtain precise information. These tests enable them to stage the tumor and treat it appropriately. Among the tests performed are: • X-ray, MRI, and CT scan • Sputum examination • Biopsy Specialists use endoscopic procedures to do biopsies, allowing for improved imaging and repair of the problematic region. Early cancers may be removed entirely and cured, and Late-stage cancers may only respond to chemotherapy or radiation. The Oncology department collaborates with the respiratory department to ensure the best interest of the patients. 4. URINARY DISORDERS Urology is the study of the urinary organs and male sexual organs and their anatomy, function, and diseases. The urologist is aware of the illnesses that can affect these organs and problems in other body organs, such as prostate and bladder disorders and kidney stones. All the above issues can impact the sexual or urinary organs. Plus, Urological problems are diagnosed using a range of specialized procedures. These tests include urine analysis, ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI scan. The Clinique Bois-Cerf ensures to have all diagnostic tests available under one roof. A range of medicines is open to the urologist for therapy. If required, Urologists will perform surgery to dissolve kidney stones or remove an enlarged prostate through the urinary tract. Kidney stones can cause pain in the back, side, lower abdomen, groin, and blood in the urine. These complaints are especially true if the stone has a greater than 5 mm diameter. To identify kidney stones, specialists utilize medical history, a physical exam, and testing. A health care expert may treat your kidney stones by removing the rock or breaking it up into little pieces. This is called lithotripsy, and some of Geneva's greatest urologists perform it. Furthermore, patients with an enlarged prostate have a wide range of symptoms. Experts are trained to understand these symptoms and treat them accordingly. The treatment varies from medication to help reduce the enlargement to surgery. Surgery can be minimally invasive, a small incision surgery or using natural orifices of the body, and complicated cases may need open surgery. All urologists are trained at Clinique Bois-Cerf to deal with complex situations.
