TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES OFFERED BY PANTAI HOSPITAL PENANG 1. Total Knee Arthroplasty 2. Heart Valve Surgery 3. Head and Neck Cancer Surgery • TOTAL KNEE ARTHROPLASTY Total knee arthroplasty is a surgery performed for severely damaged knees by arthritis or injury. It is usually indicated when nonsurgical treatments like medications and walking support no longer help, and the patient has difficulty performing simple daily activities because of severe knee pain or stiffness. Joint replacement surgery is an effective and safe procedure performed to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and help you resume normal activities. Before the procedure, your orthopedic surgeon at Pantai Hospital Penang will evaluate if you are fit for the procedure. On the day of the procedure, the highly trained anesthesia team will evaluate you. The anesthesia team will discuss with you and then determine which type of anesthesia will be best for you. You can also be given spinal, epidural, or regional nerve block anesthesia where you are awake, but the body can not feel the pain below the waist. After anesthesia, your orthopedic surgeon will start the procedure. This surgical procedure usually takes around 1 to 2 hours. The surgeon will remove the damaged bone and cartilage and then put the new implants to restore the alignment and function of the knee. Once the surgery is finished, you will be moved to the recovery room, where you will stay for several hours until your anesthesia wears off. • HEAD AND NECK CANCER SURGERY Head and neck cancers include tumors that usually begin in the squamous cells that make the lining of the mucosal surfaces of the head and neck. This includes the lining of the inside of the nose, mouth, and throat. These cancers arising from the squamous cells are often called squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. A relatively uncommon kind of head and neck cancers include salivary gland cancers arising from the salivary glands. These glands contain different cell types that can become cancerous and cause different types of salivary gland cancers. Usually, cancers of the head and neck are categorized by the area of the head or neck in which cancer begins. The surgeons at Pantai Hospital Penang treat different forms of head and neck cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, laryngeal cancer, melanoma of the head and neck, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, oral cavity cancer, and many more. They will start by assessing your complaint thoroughly, advise laboratory and radiological tests, after which they will recommend a specific surgical treatment depending on the type and stage of your head and neck cancer. Some of the options may include flexible robotic surgery, laser surgery, laryngectomy, cordectomy, lymph node removal, and reconstructive microsurgery. • HEART VALVE SURGERY Heart valve surgery is used to repair or replace diseased heart valves. Heart valves are one-way valves that allow the blood to flow only in one direction in the heart. There are four valves in your heart including aortic valve, mitral valve, tricuspid valve, and pulmonic valve. If they don’t work properly, they will prevent the blood from flowing forward, and the blood will not flow normally from the heart. Before your surgery, the highly experienced heart surgeon at Pantai Hospital Penang will personally book an appointment with you and make sure that you are fit for the surgery. Usually, there are two options for the surgery. One is an open-heart surgery in which the surgeon makes a large surgical cut in your breastbone and reaches your heart. The other option is minimally invasive valve surgery that is performed using much smaller cuts than open surgery or through a catheter that is inserted through the skin. After performing the surgery, you are admitted to the hospital. Once you are stable, your surgeon will discharge you from the hospital and follow up with you on a regular basis.
