[01/06/15] Before surgery, it’s important that you tell your doctor about any other medical problems you may be experiencing, such as allergies or diabetes. These problems can affect your surgery and treatment and thus need to be addressed ahead of time.
[01/01/15] Many patients are released from the hospital shortly after surgical procedures. Making sure you have a family member or friend present to drive you home and a caregiver in place are essential pre-op planning tips.
[12/30/14] TV shows and the movies portray appendectomies as emergency procedures. In truth, your general surgeon will first try to treat the blockage and inflammation with antibiotics. Sometimes, that is all that's required. If not, don't be surprised if there is a delay, because the surgery is much easier to perform if the inflammation is under control.
[12/25/14] Did you know that melanoma is one of the few types of cancer that is more common in men than women? Statistics show that 1 out of 35 men as opposed to 1 out of 54 women will develop a melanoma at some point in their lives.
[12/23/14] Following your surgery, it’s important that you and your caretakers be vigilant in watching for signs of infection. These include fever and chills, as well as weakness, increased pain, swelling, redness, bleeding, and wound discharge.
[12/18/14] Many surgical procedures these days allow the patients to return home on the same day. This is known as "outpatient surgery." Having a family member or friend present to drive you home is very important.
[12/16/14] It’s important to remember that taking certain medicines together can cause major medical problems. It’s important that you tell your surgeon about any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal remedies.
[12/11/14] It’s important to speak with your surgeon about what you will experience before, during, and after your surgery. Being informed and mentally prepared will help you deal with the process on both a practical and an emotional level.
[12/09/14] While the tanning industry does not agree, the Cancer Society says indoor tanning salons are connected to skin cancer. A single tanning session can increase the chances of someone being diagnosed with a melanoma by approximately 20 percent.
[12/04/14] If you have had skin lesion surgery, you will want to keep the affected area dry for one week, or until the stitches have been removed. Avoiding too much activity and eating the right diet will help in the recovery process.
[12/02/14] Surgery has been performed around the world since historic times. Egypt had very specialized surgeons who only performed one kind of operation, and there are even individual case studies from ancient Egypt.
[11/27/14] You should always notify your surgeon if there is any change in your physical condition before your surgery, such as a cold, fever, or flu symptoms. Also, if there is a chance you could be pregnant, you should notify your surgeon immediately.
[11/25/14] Keep in mind that surgical patients who smoke are much more susceptible to infections. If you are going to be facing a surgical procedure, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor about how you can quit or at least cut down.
[11/20/14] After breast surgery, you should keep the cuts clean and dry for at least one week. Sponge baths are advised instead of showers to avoid getting the affected areas wet. Steri-tape should also be placed over the incision to protect it.
[11/18/14] If you are going to need to use crutches during your recovery from surgery, it’s a good idea to practice using them ahead of time when you are feeling good. This way, you will not be overwhelmed by the awkwardness when you are already feeling tired.
[11/13/14] Post-surgery is a time for relaxation, healing, eating a healthy diet, and regaining your strength. Having friends and family by your side to care for you is important. These details are best worked out before surgery.
[11/11/14] It was the curious mind of Scotsman Joseph Lister (1827-1919) that first made the connection between bacteria entering a wound and the beginning of an infection. Lister went on to develop a chemical method to destroy bacteria.
[11/06/14] In many cases, antibiotics are given within 60 minutes before the surgery and then stopped within 24 hours. When administered properly, antibiotics can be an important tool in lowering your chances of getting an infection.
[11/04/14] The type of surgery you are having determines the type of anesthesia that will be administered to you. While local anesthesia numbs a small part of the body, regional anesthesia numbs a larger area, and general anesthesia affects the entire body.
[10/30/14] Due to the advances in patient safety, the risks of anesthesia are very low. Over the past 25 years, anesthesia-related deaths have decreased drastically. It is important to remember that certain types of illnesses, such as heart disease or high blood pressure, can increase your risks.
[10/28/14] Did you know that, while modern surgery as we know it has only been around since the later part of the 19th century, the practice actually has ancient roots? In fact, skulls found in France from around 6,500 BC show signs of a rudimentary surgery in which a hole was made in the skull.
[10/23/14] Minimally invasive surgery means that the incision is kept small, and special instruments are used, including computers for remote operations. This is sometimes called "keyhole surgery," and it allows patients to have a quicker recovery time.
[10/21/14] A general surgeon is trained to handle procedures to remove skin cancers. According to the Cancer Society, more than 2 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year, making it the most common prevalent type of cancer in the U.S.
[10/16/14] If you need to have hair removed for a surgical procedure, your doctor or nurse will take care of this for you. Don’t use a razor to remove the hair before the surgery, as it can cause an infection if small cuts are left on the skin.
[10/14/14] If you are having symptoms that could indicate appendicitis, it's important to visit a general surgeon as soon as possible. Generally, the appendix will burst about 72 hours after becoming infected. A burst appendix can spread bacteria through the body, so removing the organ before that happens is crucial.
[10/09/14] When you are having a surgery performed, someone from the surgery center or hospital will call you to discuss pre-operative instructions. A typical instruction is to make sure you do not eat or drink anything, including water, after midnight the night before your surgery.
