Services provided by BariOSS Centre in Nagercoil
Endoscopic surgery in Nagercoil
Dr. Christopher is highly proficient in endoscopic surgery in Nagercoil. An endoscopy is a procedure in which the doctor views and operates on the body's internal organs and vessels using a specialized instrument called an endoscope, a flexible tube with a camera attached. It helps him to see internal issues without having to make big incisions.
The surgeon inserts an endoscope through a small cut or an opening in the body, such as the mouth. Some of the endoscopic procedures performed by Dr. Christopher are colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, enteroscopy, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, etc.
Laser piles treatment in Nagercoil
At BariOSS, we offer advanced minimally-invasive laser piles treatment in Nagercoil that effectively delivers quick relief and eliminates painful symptoms. Mostly, it is an outpatient procedure.
Dr. Christopher will direct a beam of laser energy onto each hemorrhoid (pile). The laser cuts off hemorrhoids and removes them entirely. The benefit of using a laser rather than a scalpel is it closes the incision immediately and clots the blood, thus eliminating bleeding. We clean and sterilize the area after removing the hemorrhoids.
Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery in Nagercoil
Nowadays, people opt for laparoscopic hernia surgery in Nagercoil as it is less painful than open hernia surgery, and they can go home the same day after surgery.
During the procedure, Dr. Christopher makes tiny cuts below the navel and inflates the belly with air to see the organs in the belly. He then inserts a laparoscope and other tools through the small incisions to repair the hernia. He may place a mesh over the defect or stitch the healthy tissues' edges to reinforce the belly wall.
