TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES PROVIDED BY HELIOS EMIL VON BEHRING HOSPITAL • LUNGS AND COLORECTAL CANCERS Talking about the deadliest of all diseases, cancer is one of the topmost threats to human life. More specifically, lung cancer accounts for the major number of deaths caused by cancer worldwide while colorectal cancer ranks second in the cancer deaths ratio. The causes of cancer being still unknown, genetics and extended exposure to UV Radiation is still thought to be the major reason. Common lung cancer symptoms may include blood in coughing, shortness of breath, inability to suppress cough, and chest pain. While colorectal cancer symptoms are more related to stomach problems like diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, blood in fecal material, or anemia. For the treatment of cancers, the Helios Emil von Behring Hospital offers radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, ablation, and surgical treatment procedures. While palliative care is also given to reduce the symptoms. For colorectal cancer, targeted therapy and insertion of colostomy bags are done while for lung cancer, screening, targeted therapy, minimally invasive surgery, and VATS are used for treatment. • LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY Laparoscopic surgery involves abdominal procedures that are done without making any larger incisions inside the stomach or pelvis region. Due to the characteristic small incision, it is also called keyhole surgery. Some specific instruments are used in laparoscopic surgery that is available at the Helios Emil von Behring Hospital During this minimally invasive surgery, a laparoscope is used which consists of a small tube provided with a torch and a camera. This goes inside the body to capture images of the insides of the body that are portrayed on a monitor screen for studying. Laparoscopic surgery is a modern technology that helps to treat medical conditions without causing any extra damage to the body of the patient. It helps to reduce pain and scarring. The recovery is faster and patients lose less blood as compared to other open surgeries. • LIMB RECONSTRUCTION AND AESTHETIC HAND SURGERY Limb reconstruction is a way of treating different kinds of limb deformities using special orthopedic surgeries. It may be done to correct a genetic limb length or to treat a traumatic limb deformity. This surgery includes correction by internal frame fixation done by plating or nailing, and then external fixation done by using Ilizarov or Monotube frames. As for aesthetic hand surgeries, they're done for the sole purpose of beautification and correction to raise one's hand standards to the level of perfection. Patients who request Aesthetic Hand Surgery are briefed about the procedure in advance to avoid any confusion. Other reasons to perform limb reconstruction surgery can be osteomyelitis, bone tumors, and congenital deformities. The treatment process involves osteotomy done by special orthopedic surgeons at Helios Emil von Behring Hospital. The surgery consists of two phases, one for internal fixation and the second for external fixation. • CEREBRAL PALSY Cerebral palsy is a severe genetic deformity condition of the human body that involves involuntary muscle movement and lack of coordination. It is characterized by disturbed senses of vision, hearing, and improper interpretation of other sensations. The disorder results in motor disabilities in children when they're born. Cerebral Palsy is majorly caused by abnormal development of the central nervous system. A severe injury or trauma may also lead to cerebral palsy. Severe damage to the parts of the brain that are responsible for body movement, coordination, and posture can lead to permanent loss of senses. The treatment of cerebral palsy involves using assistive aids as an initial therapy that goes on to medications. If not managed, the patient is recommended to have surgery. Some anticonvulsant drugs and muscle relaxants are used to control symptoms. With the help of orthopedic surgery, pain is relieved and mobility can be achieved while Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) is used as a last resort to get rid of chronic pain by cutting down the causative nerve signaling.
