General surgery is represented in Polyclinic Lege Artis, mostly, by minimally invasive quick procedures that are mostly done in local anesthesia.
They are performed using classical surgical techniques, or they are perhaps done with no sutures – completely non-traumatic – using radiofrequency and laser.
In that way, all skin changes and growths are removed – warts, moles, fibroma, atheroma, lipoma, spider angioma, telangiectasias.
This technique is mostly used in removing scars and tattoos, as well as in dealing with ingrown nails.
Surgery of the anterior abdominal wall is part of abdominal surgery that deals with problems of loose abdominal wall – hernia – inguinal, femoral and umbilical.
Colorectal surgery is a branch of surgery dealing with problems and diseases of the final part of the colon, rectum, and anus.
It encompasses hemorrhoids, anal thrombosis, anal fissure, pilonidal sinus and condyloma
Since almost 50% of the population is faced with some of these problems, it is necessary to provide the possibility of adequate and timely diagnosis and, of course, an appropriate and effective treatment.
In these diseases, surgical treatment is indicated, although patients are – often long – trying to avoid it, with resistance even to this type of examination. It is, probably, because of embarrassment and shame as the ending of the large intestine represents an intimate region. Likewise, there is also fear of pain in sensitive and inflamed areas. So often patients engage in ‘self-medication’ ointments, creams, suppositories, compresses, diet – which is, generally, quite inefficient and short-lived.
This fear and anxiety which the patients feel from unknown or unpleasant views are the reason why they delay going to the doctor; the consequence is that patients often see a doctor at an advanced stage of the disease or with the appearance of complications – which makes a treatment difficult and prolonged.
