TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES OFFERED BY FORTIS HOSPITAL AND KIDNEY INSTITUTE, KOLKATA • GLOMERULONEPHRITIS • HYSTERECTOMY • TOTAL KNEE ARTHROPLASTY • GLOMERULONEPHRITIS Glomerulonephritis is a disease in which the tiny filters in the kidneys called glomeruli become inflamed. These filters help remove excess fluid, electrolytes, and waste from the blood and pass it into the urine. Glomerulonephritis can occur as a consequence of another disease, such as diabetes, viral infections, or lupus, and can damage your kidneys. If you develop glomerulonephritis, you may notice pink or cola-colored urine because of the red blood cells in your urine. You may also notice your urine becoming foamy because of excess proteins in your urine, high blood pressure, and swelling in your body because of fluid retention. If glomerulonephritis is not managed on time, it can lead to numerous complications, some of which include acute kidney failure, chronic kidney failure, high blood pressure, and nephrotic syndrome. If you develop any symptoms of glomerulonephritis, you should see a specialist at Fortis Hospital & Kidney Institute (FHKI), Rashbehari, Kolkata. The specialist will assess your condition and perform some tests, including urine tests, blood tests, imaging tests, and kidney biopsy. The specialist will then give your treatment depending on the type of glomerulonephritis and protect your kidneys from further damage. • HYSTERECTOMY Hysterectomy is a procedure that involves the surgical removal of the uterus. It can be used to treat various medical conditions. The doctor may suggest a hysterectomy if you complain of excessive vaginal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, or you are diagnosed with cancer of the cervix, uterus, or ovaries. Hysterectomy is also indicated if you have a noncancerous lump in the uterus called a fibroid or a serious infection of the reproductive organs called pelvic inflammatory disease. Your doctor might also suggest hysterectomy if you have uterine prolapse, a condition in which the uterus drops and protrudes out from the cervix. At Fortis Hospital & Kidney Institute (FHKI), Rashbehari, Kolkata, hysterectomy can be performed in different ways. Their doctors specialize in performing Partial Hysterectomy, Total Hysterectomy, and Hysterectomy with Salpingo-Oophorectomy. A partial hysterectomy is when a portion of the uterus is removed, whereas a total hysterectomy is when the whole uterus is removed. Hysterectomy and Salpingo-Oophorectomy are when the entire uterus is removed with one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Before the surgery, your surgeon will call you to the clinic at Fortis Hospital & Kidney Institute (FHKI), Rashbehari, Kolkata, where he or she will assess your health. The surgeon will then discuss the types and methods of hysterectomy and choose the best one for you. On the day of the surgery, a general anesthetic will be injected to make you numb and help you sleep during the procedure. The surgeon will then begin the procedure. If you choose an abdominal hysterectomy, the doctor will take out the uterus through a cut in the abdomen. If you choose a vaginal hysterectomy, your uterus will be removed from a small incision that is made inside the vagina. In a laparoscopic hysterectomy, the doctor will make tiny incisions in the abdomen through which a thin tube-like instrument called a laparoscope would be inserted. The surgeon will then visualize the uterus through the laparoscope and remove the uterus by cutting it into tiny pieces and removing them one by one. After the surgery, you are shifted to a room in the hospital for 3 to 4 days to monitor your condition. Once your condition is stable, the doctor discharges you from the hospital and books an appointment for follow-up. Your doctor at Fortis Hospital & Kidney Institute (FHKI), Rashbehari, Kolkata, continues to keep their patients under care even after surgery to make sure the patients do not develop any complications and live a healthy life they deserve. • TOTAL KNEE ARTHROPLASTY Total knee arthroplasty is a joint replacement surgery performed for severely damaged knees caused by arthritis or injury. It is indicated when the patient has difficulty performing simple daily activities of living because of pain or stiffness in the knees. Total knee arthroplasty is an efficacious procedure that relieves pain, corrects deformity, and helps patients resume their daily activities. Before the procedure, your orthopedic surgeon at Fortis Hospital & Kidney Institute (FHKI), Rashbehari, Kolkata, will evaluate you to make sure you are fit for the procedure. Your surgeon will ask your questions related to your general health, and extent of your knee pain, and your ability to function. He will then perform a knee examination and advise some lab and imaging tests. If total knee replacement is the best option to relieve your pain and improve your function, a date will be set for the procedure. On the day of the procedure, the anesthesia team will give you general anesthesia to help you sleep during the procedure. You may also be given spinal, epidural, or regional nerve block anesthesia. Once your body becomes numb, your orthopedic surgeon will start the procedure. The whole procedure can take around 1 to 2 hours. The surgeon removes the damaged bone and cartilage and replaces it with a new metal and plastic implant to restore the alignment and function of the knee. After the surgery, you will be moved to your room in the hospital. Once you have recovered, your doctor will discharge you from the hospital and follow up in the outpatient clinics to assess your activity with newly implanted knees.
