Some of the more common procedures we perform:
Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery
Here at Precision Integrated Medical Specialists we offer Bariatric (also known as Metabolic or Obesity) Surgery as part of our integrated approach to your health.
As well as the weight reduction surgery, we also offer band adjustment, removal or replacement and sleevegastrectomy-related hiatus hernia repairs, and revisions procedures where previous operations have lost some effectiveness.
Colorectal Surgery – Surgery of the Colon and Rectum –
The team at Precision Integrated Medical Specialists provides compassionate and state-of-the-art treatment of a wide range of conditions affecting the large intestine (colon and rectum) and the anus.
Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio – Pancreatography (ERCP)
ERCP is a special technique used to study the gall bladder, bile ducts, and pancreatic duct and gallbladder.
During ERCP, your specialist will pass an gastroscope (a thin tube with an inbuilt video camera) through your mouth, oesophagus and stomach, and then into the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine).
Endoscopy: Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy
Endoscopic procedures involve the use of a special camera which is inserted into the gastrointestinal tract either via the mouth (gastroscopy) or anus (colonoscopy).
Gallbladder Surgery – Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Surgery to remove the gallbladder is known as a cholecystectomy. This is a common procedure that is most commonly used to treat gallstones or recurrent gallbladder infection (cholecystitis). This surgery is relatively safe, and is usually performed using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. That allows most patients to return home the same day or the next day. When this is done via laparoscopy (using several small incisions and specialised keyhole instruments) it is known as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Hernia surgery has evolved considerably over the past decade.
Traditional, or open, hernia surgery, is still indicated in certain situations, however surgical advances have created many more options for patients.
Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive keyhole procedure undertaken to diagnose and repair a number of injuries affecting the knee. These conditions and injuries include meniscal tears, osteoarthritis, and patellar dislocations. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, knee arthroscopy generally results in shorter recovery times and reduced the risk of surgical complications.
Knee Cartilage Injury Treatment
Surgery is usually not necessary when the cartilage defect is small and/or asymptomatic. Surgery to restore articular cartilage may be considered for patients with larger areas of damage, or where conservative treatment fails.
A knee replacement is the complete or partial replacement of the knee joint with an artificial know (also known as a prosthetic implant). It often provides long-term relief for patients with osteoarthritis or other chronic knee conditions.
