List of Treatments:


  • Liver transplant: A liver transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces your damaged or injured liver with a healthy liver from another person known as a donor.The surgeon removes your liver and inserts the donor liver into your body. The surgeon next attaches your blood vessels and bile ducts to the donated liver. Depending on your circumstances, surgery might take up to 12 hours.


  • Viral infection treatment: Viral infections are those which are caused by a virus. Treatment procedures include multiple antiviral medicines prescribed by the doctor.  


  • Transplant Hepatology: Transplant Hepatology is a subspecialty of gastroenterology that focuses on the treatment of advanced liver disease and all diagnostic procedures required to evaluate and manage potential liver transplant patients. Transplant hepatologists also handle transplant patients both before and after transplantation, thus they are knowledgeable about concerns including immunosuppression and transplant-associated infectious infections.


  • Bladder Cancer Surgery: Bladder cancer is one of the most common treatments for muscle invasive bladder cancer. The surgeon will generally remove your whole bladder (cystectomy) and replace it with a new mechanism for you to urinate.


  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome ( IBS ) Treatment: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a collection of symptoms that include abdominal discomfort and changes in bowel motions, which might be diarrhea, constipation, or both. Treatment includes Dicyclomine (Bentyl) and other medications prescribed by the doctor to ease uncomfortable bowel spasms.


  • Hemorrhoids Treatment: Hemorrhoids are bulging veins in the anus and lower rectum that resemble varicose veins. Internal hemorrhoids form inside the rectum while external hemorrhoids form under the skin around the anus. Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirin are all pain medicines that doctors prescribe for hemorrhoids.


  • Liver Disease Treatment: Some liver issues can be addressed with lifestyle changes, such as quitting drinking or decreasing weight, usually as part of a medical programme that involves continuous monitoring of liver function. Other liver issues may be addressed with drugs or surgically.

  • Gastritis Treatment: Gastritis occurs when the stomach lining becomes irritated. It can cause discomfort, indigestion, and nausea. Antacids, alginates, and antibiotics are among the treatments often prescribed by the doctor. 


  • Ulcerative Colitis Treatment: Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in which the immune system's aberrant responses create inflammation and ulcers on the inner lining of the large intestine. A proctocolectomy is the usual surgical treatment for treating ulcerative colitis. This procedure involves the removal of both your colon and your rectum.
