When do you need surgery?

When your doctors have run out of options to treat your disease, condition, or injury, surgery may be the only best option.

Quality of life is often the deciding factor, especially if it involves mobility, pain, and other such symptoms.

Let’s look at the types of surgery before we delve into the purpose.

Emergency Surgery
These are to be done right away when one’s condition has become critical and life-threatening. An emergency can be anything like acute appendicitis or physical trauma from an accident.
Required Surgery
Removal of kidney stones is the most widely known example. Medicines or other treatment may not work well, and surgery may be the only option. While it is required, the surgery doesn’t have to be performed as an emergency (unless critical due to complications).
Elective Surgery
You can decide to have a procedure as a treatment option, improve your quality of life, or enhance your physical appearance. Examples can range from a Knee cap replacement (with exceptions) to a wart or mole removal.

Purpose of any kind of surgery

Diagnostic or Investigative Action to Explore the Root of Your Health Problem

Biopsy of an Abnormal Tissue Mass or Lesion

Obstruction Removal

Diseased Tissue or Organ Removal

Bypass Surgeries Rechannelling or Redirecting Blood Vessels

Tissue or Organ Transplantation

Mechanical or Electronic Device Implantation

Cosmetic Surgery

Some of the less invasive procedures can be performed in an outpatient setup taking advantage of the advancement in anaesthesia technology.

Admission & Discharge Process

On the day of your surgery, you will be admitted to your allotted bed in the day care ward

The nurses will take your vitals and prep you for the treatment

Your vitals will be monitored round-the-clock

The nurse will administer your medicine and set up your IV-line as needed

The supervising physician on call will check on you from time to time

The surgeon will perform your scheduled surgery in our OT room

You will be discharged once your condition has stabilised and your doctor has signed you off with the prescription course to follow post-treatment

Pre-Surgery Lab and Diagnostics

Our surgeons and doctors may prescribe a few routine lab tests before you are admitted for your operation.
Why do you need these tests?
Routine tests help set a baseline of your health. Some specific tests are recommended as per condition, Diagnosis, and type of surgery.
Will some tests be repeated after surgery?
Your doctor will determine if there is a need.

Radiology and Lab Tests before Surgery

Common Lab Tests
HIV
Part of a routine infection screening.
HBSAG or Hepatitis B surface antigen
Part of a routine infection screening
COVID-19 RT-PCR/ Rapid Antigen Test
This is a mandatory test right now due to the ongoing pandemic threat.
CBC

Part of a routine infection screening.
Anaemia (from low red blood cells count) and infections can be detected from Complete Blood Count.

PT/PTT

How well does your blood clot? Coagulation Studies (Prothrombin Time & Partial Thromboplastin Time) help find that out. Disclose to your doctor/surgeon if you are on blood thinners (medicines like heparin, enoxaparin, warfarin, etc.) as those must be stopped before your procedure.

WBC

Are you on medication that can affect your White Blood Cells Count? WBC can find out any fever or infections you may have at that time.

Blood Chemistry Panel

The metabolic markers in your system can reveal a lot about your general health. Depending on which marker your doctor needs to know about, a blood sample will be sent for analysis

Arterial Blood Gas
How well are your lungs functioning? Will the use of respiratory interventions like ventilator, oxygen, etc., be effective on you?

This test is extremely necessary if your surgery involves general anaesthesia, and your doctor feels you may have breathing issues or lung disease.

Sodium / Potassium
These electrolytes help regulate your heart rhythm and your other system functions. Often a part of the blood chemistry panel, the test checks these essential substances’ levels in your body.
Glucose
Are you diabetic or pre-diabetic or have any other endocrine disorder? A glucose test can reveal the level of sugar in your blood. This test is done as a part of the blood chemistry panel.
Some Scans may be required for Diagnosis
ECG / EKG

How well is your heart functioning? An ECG is often the number one question your surgeon may have, judging your age, health, and surgery type.

An Electrocardiogram will record the electrical activity of your heart and how strong your heart muscles are. They also reveal murmurs, fluttering heartbeats, and look for reasons for chest pain.

Chest X-Rays
You will be advised Chest X-ray if you have shortness of breath, chest pain, cough, and certain fevers. Your doctor may also use an X-ray as a diagnostic method for heart and lung sounds.
MRI / CT Scan / X-rays

Pre-surgery Imaging is most commonly required in cases of muscular or tissue injury and inflammation.

Abdominal procedures and orthopaedic operations are common situations where a doctor needs to see the scan reports before a scheduled surgery to understand the problem’s latest status and location.

Ultrasound
Common in cases of biopsy or laparoscopic surgeries where the doctor needs your soft tissues’ visibility (e.g., abdomen, uterus, etc.). Ultrasounds can be done before surgery or during one, depending on the procedure.

Some tests may be advised in specific situations based on medical need.

  • Pregnancy test
  • Liver function panel
Are all these tests necessary for any surgery?

Your doctors will determine that

  1. based on your current health,
  2. to further diagnose your condition
  3. the kind of procedure you need or planned to have
  4. what risk markers they need to check

If you have any doubts about prescribed tests, please speak with your medical team before getting on with them

Will all prescribed lab tests be available at RxDx, or do I have to go somewhere else?

Yes, of course. Both Whitefield and Malleswaram branches have skilled technicians who work with the latest laboratory and diagnostic tools.

Getting Ready for a Surgery

On the day of your surgery, the Surgical Care team comprising surgeon, anaesthesiologists, nurses, attendants, and others will attend to your case – before, during, and after the procedure. They will explain to you what you wish to know details. Do ask questions to clear any doubts.
Prep for the Procedure

This part goes according to the type of operation you are going to have

  • Change into a gown if needed or stay in your clothes, as your doctor suggests
  • Some form of identification may be assigned to you
  • You may have an IV line fitted to your forearm for medication or anaesthesia administration
  • A stretcher may be used to take you to the OT room, or you can walk in, depending on the surgery
This is how our operating room looks.
  • The temperature inside the OT may be cold as a measure to prevent bacterial growth
  • The surgical table is flexible enough that its height, length, and tilt can be adjusted
  • The OT lamps provide ample light without shadows during the operation
  • Monitors connected to you will track your vitals like heart rate and BP
  • Depending on your anaesthesia method, a ventilator or breathing support will be on standby
  • Instruments used within an OT are sterile
  • The OT is also equipped with machines to control any bleeding
  • Any other device needed during surgery is close at hand

Well before your procedure, if you have any concern or query on your mind, do reach out to your Surgical Care Team.

Questions to ask Before a Procedure

We have prepared a list of questions that you may field to your treating doctor or surgeon and others in the Surgical Care Department.
What is the operation you are undergoing?
Is the estimated cost going to cover everything? What are the exclusions? Should you prepare for a buffer?
Find out if your insurance is going to cover enough. Some miscellaneous or non-surgical items are not covered by insurance.
Do you need a delay in the schedule to arrange the funds?
If you face problems arranging funds on your own, you can either ask your physician to direct you to our Insurance Team or directly seek them out. The team can help you understand the fee structure and even help you find insurance or finance.
Is your doctor aware of your medical history?
Make sure you mention all your concurrent medications, addictions, habits, etc., to your doctor. Making a list helps. Ask, if not already instructed, which medicines you need to stop before your surgery. Stop smoking and consuming alcohol as they can stand in your way of recovery.
Can any medicine or device cause you allergies?
If you have had some allergic symptoms to any medication, please do disclose at the time of consultation
How is your recovery process going to be?
What kind and level of discomfort you can expect?
How much risk is involved, and how does it weigh against the benefit you seek?
Do you have anybody to take care of you?

If you need post-operative care at home or rehab from injury etc., you may seek the services of RxDx Home Healthcare.

r

Do not wear jewellery to the Surgical Care Department

If you are not clear with the information received from your medical team, please ask again. You can ask for websites or articles, or materials related to the condition you are being treated for or ask your physician to explain further.

Recovering from Surgery

Listen carefully when your nurses and doctors explain the care methods and critical points to watch for complications. If you are not sure you understood or captured everything, ask again. While in the Day Care Ward under observation, your medical team will monitor you for signs of concern. Your vitals will be taken at intervals to track your progress. Your IV infusions and other medical aspects will be checked. Your incisions will be checked and dressed.

Please adhere to the guidelines your doctor explains to you for hygienic and safe post-operative care. At the first sign of discomfort, talk to your medical point of contact. Seek help on time.

Post-Operative Care

By now, you would have set up your support system. No matter how small a process, mole removal or an appendectomy, the first few days need some hand-holding. A family member, relative, a friend, or a nurse hired for home healthcare will be mighty helpful.

We can help you with Post-Surgical Management at Home and Deliver Medicines to your Doorstep.

Check on the area of your body where you underwent your operation. Maintain a clean, dry, safe spot there.

For any medical queries and assistance, reach out to our Surgical Care team.
