Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins inside the rectum or around the anus. Internal hemorrhoids are swellings that lie inside the rectum and are usually painless, but bleeding usually occurs during bowel movement. On the other hand, external hemorrhoids are swelling that protrude from the anus, with overlaying skin that becomes irritated and sensitive, causing pain and discomfort. Though hemorrhoids are a common condition, our clinic provides specialized solutions to relieve symptoms to ensure a fast recovery.

Skin Lesions

Skin lesions are parts of the skin that are different from the areas around them. While these conditions are common and most result from damage to the skin, they may sometimes be signs of an underlying condition. In some cases, skin lesions may form from a serious infection that requires immediate medical attention. Ranging from blisters and rashes to skin cancer, our clinic provides treatments for all types of skin lesions to prevent the appearance of further complications.

Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy

Our clinic is perfectly equipped to carry out gastroscopies, also known as upper endoscopies, and colonoscopies. Aside from conducting diagnoses, these procedures allow our doctor to collect samples from the tissues for further testing, as well as remove tumors and other foreign objects if any are present.

Hernia

A hernia presents itself as a lump on your body, usually on the abdomen or the groin. This occurs when an organ pushes through a weak spot in your muscles. While it usually has very few symptoms, the organ may get trapped by the muscle walls and cause complications such as a blockage in your intestine or even tissue death. If a hernia is causing you discomfort, our dedicated team is waiting to serve you.

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy is a procedure to remove the gallbladder if you have gallstones, an inflammation or infection, or if your gallbladder is cancerous. Our clinic possesses cutting-edge technology and equipment, along with an experienced professional, to execute laparoscopic procedures smoothly so that patients may go through a swift recovery from the surgery.

Laparoscopic Appendicectomy

Laparoscopic appendicectomy is a minimally invasive surgical process that is needed to remove your appendix when you have appendicitis. Laparoscopy is a procedure performed through several small incisions instead of a big one, hence, with Dr. Sumithra as your surgeon, the surgery will result in less pain, less scarring, and a shorter recovery time.

Thyroid Disorders

The thyroid is a gland in your throat that regulates many important functions of your body, such as your metabolism, your mood, and your heart rate. Any problems involving the thyroid gland would result in serious complications if left untreated. Do not hesitate to visit our clinic for a proper diagnosis should you experience any symptoms such as fatigue, unexplained weight loss or weight gain, and mood swings.

Breast Cancer and Breast-Related Disorders

While anyone could suffer from breast disorders, they are most prevalent in women. Whether the disorders are cancerous or non-cancerous (inflammation, cysts, benign lumps), women must be cognizant of the condition of their breasts and the changes they undergo, if any. Early detection saves lives, and our clinic is dedicated to providing the needed treatment with the utmost professionalism before your condition could worsen.
