TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES PROVIDED AT HELIOS HOSPITAL KREFELD Like many European clinics, Helios Hospital Krefeld is well furnished with high technology medical instruments and error-free conduction of medical surgeries. Their staff and the doctors are competitive and highly trained as they believe in providing complete consideration for their patients. This clinic believes in conducting surgeries with the help of thorough research and background study of patients for the progress of the medical care provided. A few of the specialties conducted by this hospital are briefly explained as follows: • LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY Laparoscopic surgery is done to minimize the side effects of open surgery. It is also called a minimally invasive surgical procedure. In this surgery, the recovery of the patients is quick and can leave the hospital soon. Background study of the patients' health is important before recommendation of this surgery by doctors. In this surgery, a small camera, also known as a laparoscope, is inserted into the body by causing small incisions in the area. It involves fewer chances of side effects such as sepsis and infection as compared to open surgery. In open surgery, a patient has to suffer a 6-12 inch around the affected area for the doctors to reach the concerned surface. However, the surgeon has to make only small cuts in laparoscopic surgery, generally of half-inch length. This kind of surgery is also called Keyhole Surgery. Doctors insert a tube through each opening, and the camera and a surgical instrument go through the opening for the conduction of a surgical operation. This surgery has many advantages as it involves small cuts, smaller scars, less pain, quick healing of scars, fewer chances of internal scarring, and a patient can get back to normal activities sooner. Helios Hospital Krefeld has appointed specialized surgeons to conduct Laparoscopic surgeries. It requires the precision and acute attention of doctors. Most of the surgeries conducted in this clinic are Laparoscopic surgeries as the medical equipment in this hospital is contemporary. • GYNECOLOGICAL SURGERY Gynecologic surgery is performed on a female reproductive system that includes the cervix, uterus, vagina, fallopian tubes, ovaries, urinary tract, and bladder. The purpose and advantages of this type of surgery can be achieved after careful examination of the purpose of the surgery. Mostly, gynecological surgery is done to remove cancerous cells from the affected area to halt the growth of cancerous cells. Additionally, it is also done to relieve patients from pain or incontinence. Close study of bladder and urinary tract also requires this type of surgery to diagnose a disorder. Each gynecologic surgery is different. Most of the gynecologic surgeries are executed as laparoscopic surgeries. In this case, the doctor inserts the laparoscopic instrument inside the body, and the doctor examines it without opening the body. Due to this laparoscopic type of surgery, the cuts are smaller on the female's body, and the healing is quicker, providing less risk of a potential rise of infection. Women undergo gynecology surgery for several reasons. It is done to counter disorders such as fibroids (benign tumors), pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, cancer, chronic pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, and usually permanent birth control. Helios Hospital Krefeld has experienced surgeons and oncologists who have successfully treated patients suffering from mild to severe stages of cancer and other disorders of pelvic regions in females. The caretakers actively provide care after surgery to ensure the success of the surgery. • AORTIC VALVE DISEASE Aortic valve disease is a medical disorder in which the valve between the main pumping chamber of a heart (left ventricle) and the main artery to a body (aorta) stops functioning accurately. The condition of Aortic valve disease might be present at birth, known as congenital heart disease, or it may arise from other causes such as age-related changes to the heart, infections, high blood pressure or injury to the heart. A heart has four valves that ensure the blood flows in the right manner. The valves of a heart include the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve and aortic valve. Each of these valves has flaps known as cusps or leaflets and opens and closes once during each heartbeat. At times, these valves do not open or close properly, resulting in a heart's blood flow, potentially damaging the capability to pump blood to a body. The aortic valve between the lower-left ventricle and the main artery that delivers blood from the heart to the body (aorta) is impaired to function properly in aortic valve disease. It may result in not closing properly, which causes the blood to go backward toward (regurgitate) the left ventricle, or the valve may be narrowed (stenosis). Heart-related surgeries are generally complicated; however, Helios Hospital Krefeld has accomplished doctors and surgeons that diagnose the issue on time and provide a customized world-class medical treatment to its patients.
