It is interesting to note that while a list, quite a long list of surgical procedures has been presented to the public, the list is still flexible, perhaps taking into unique conditions not previously or rarely treated. The mount pleasant endoscopy program covers abdominal surgery, breast biopsies, lumpectomies and mastectomies. The program also covers cancer related surgical procedures. Colonoscopies, colostomies and colectomies are also on the list.
The endoscopy surgeons are doing surgeries to the gallbladder and the hernia, common procedures nowadays to aged men and women. They remove hamorrhoids too. Lymph node biopsies are also being carried out. And after a thyroid biopsy; who knows, thyroid surgery. Surgical wound care and skin grafts are critical procedures for those who have incurred injuries as a result of accident. On the day procedures, however, should never be treated lightly and not be treated any less seriously.
On the day procedures include abscess drainage and management, cryotherapies, skin biopsies, lesion removals, wart removals, and even the removal of ingrown toenails. That’s it. That’s it for now. As was said earlier in this note, the list, the surgical list, can be quite long. There may also be procedures that currently do not appear on the list. This does not necessarily suggest that all is lost for the patient.
Perhaps it just means that the entire procedure, from the diagnosis to the final stitching (do they even do stitching these days?) is carried out a lot more carefully. But given all the new procedures available, that’s thanks to advancements made in science and medicine, whatever surgical procedure is prescribed or invented, the results are fast approaching a near-one hundred percent success rate.
Early diagnosis and early action remains critical. The success rate is higher.
