Commonly done procedures by Dr. Adarsh Chaudhary
Whipple’s Surgery - This is a complicated procedure done to eliminate the head of the pancreas, the first part of the small intestine, gallbladder, and bile duct. This surgery is done to treat tumors, disorders of pancreas, intestine and bile duct. After the surgery is performed, the surgeon re-establishes the connections of the remaining organs, for the patients to facilitate the digestion in a normal way.
Bariatric Surgery - All kinds of Gastric bypass and weight loss surgeries come under the category of bariatric surgery. These surgeries make changes in the digestive system, to help in weight loss. Such kinds of surgeries are only opted for, when diet improvement and exercise have stopped working leading to serious health disorders because of increased weight.
Cholecystectomy - This is a surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder, whose function is to collect and store bile. This is done by insertion of a tiny video camera and some special instruments by making small incisions on the abdomen. This is done in cases of gallstones in gallbladder, gallstones in the bile duct, gallbladder inflammation, large gallbladder polyps, and pancreas inflammation due to gallstones.
Laparoscopic surgeries - Dr. Adarsh is an expert in performing the laparoscopic surgeries in which the surgery is performed by inserting a short, narrow tube into the abdomen through a very small incision. Through these tubes, the surgeon inserts the instruments which are used to perform the procedure inside the abdomen. These types of surgeries have less recovery time and cause lesser pain and trauma post-operatively.
