Frequently Asked Questions
How does Liver Failure occur? Does it need a transplant?
Liver failure happens when large parts of the liver become damaged beyond repair and the liver can't work anymore. Treatment options include medication, dietary changes, or possibly a liver transplant which is a surgery that removes a liver that no longer functions properly (liver failure) and replaces it with a healthy liver from a deceased donor or a portion of a healthy liver from a living donor.
What is a GI Biopsy?
A gastric tissue biopsy and culture are laboratory tests that examine stomach tissue. These tests are typically carried out to determine the cause of a stomach ulcer or other troublesome stomach symptoms. “Gastric tissue biopsy” is the term used for the examination of tissue removed from the stomach.
What is an Endoscopy?
It is a procedure in which an instrument known as an endoscope is introduced into the body to give a view of its internal parts. an endoscopy is used to collect tissue samples (biopsy) to test for diseases and conditions, such as anaemia, bleeding, inflammation, diarrhea or cancers of the digestive system.
What is Colonoscopy?
Colonoscopy or coloscopy is the endoscopic examination of the large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel with a CCD camera or a fibre optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus.
What is minimally invasive hernia surgery?
The minimally invasive surgical technique helps eliminate unnecessary swelling and pain. Our surgeons use a specially designed type of surgical mesh, which they place safely and securely beneath the hernia itself. The mesh may also help keep the hernia from recurring.
