Chemotherapy is a general term used to describe a wide range of anti-cancer drug treatments.
Traditionally, chemotherapy describes drugs which are given directly into a vein. Nowadays, your treatment can be given in a variety of different ways including as a tablet, an injection under the skin, an injection into a vein or into the spinal area.
BIMC Hospital Kuta offers a wide variety of drug treatments including:
The longer standing treatments of this kind are called cytotoxic chemotherapy. “Cyto” means cell, and “toxic” means poisonous. The aim of these drugs is to poison and destroy the cancerous cells in your body. They may also affect non-cancerous cells, causing unpleasant side effects.
As well as the longstanding chemotherapy treatments, BIMC Hospital Kuta also uses newer drugs. These work in a more targeted way to kill cancer cells while reducing the impact on non-cancer cells in the body. These newer drugs are sometimes referred to as monoclonal antibodies, immunotherapy, and biological agents.
Each type of chemotherapy drug can be given alone but commonly cancer is treated with a combination of different drugs. Combining treatments enable more cancer cells to be killed and increase the chance of a good outcome of your treatment.
Kind of cancer treatment that BIMC Hospital Kuta prescribes for you will depend on a number of factors including:
BIMC Hospital Kuta tailors your treatment, taking all these factors into account. Before you start chemotherapy, your treatment team will discuss your treatment plan with you face to face, explaining exactly what will be done. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
As your treatment progresses, you will always be able to ask your team whatever you need to know.
The majority of chemotherapy is given as a day treatment. This means that you come in for your treatment and can go home on the same day. We also have clinics in some GP surgeries enabling you to have treatment closer to home.
In some cases, eg where a longer treatment is required or because of the nature of particular cancer, patients need to be admitted to hospital as an inpatient for chemotherapy.
Dialysis refers to a treatment that performs some of the same things done by healthy kidneys. It is needed when your own kidneys can no longer take care of your body's needs. You need dialysis when you develop end stage kidney failure --usually by the time you lose about 85 to 90 percent of your kidney function. Like healthy kidneys, dialysis keeps your body in balance. Dialysis does the following:
In chronic or end stage kidney failure, your kidneys do not get better and you will need dialysis for the rest of your life. If your doctor says you are a candidate, you may choose to be placed on a waiting list for a new kidney.
There are two types of dialysis --hemodialysis (renal dialysis) and peritoneal dialysis. In hemodialysis, an artificial kidney (hemodialyzer) is used to remove waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood. To get your blood into the artificial kidney, the doctor needs to make an access (entrance) into your blood vessels. This is done by minor surgery to your arm or leg.
Sometimes, an access is made by joining an artery to a vein under your skin to make a bigger blood vessel called a fistula. However, if your blood vessels are not adequate for a fistula, the doctor may use a soft plastic tube to join an artery and a vein under your skin. This is called a graft.
Occasionally, an access is made by means of a narrow plastic tube, called a catheter, which is inserted into a large vein in your neck. This type of access may be temporary, but is sometimes used for long-term treatment.
Usually, each hemodialysis treatment lasts about four hours and is done three times per week. A type of hemodialysis called high-flux dialysis may take less time. You can speak to your doctor to see if this is an appropriate treatment for you.
In peritoneal dialysis, your blood is cleaned inside your body. The doctor will do surgery to place a plastic tube called a catheter into your abdomen (belly) to make an access. During the treatment, your abdominal area (called the peritoneal cavity) is slowly filled with dialysate through the catheter. The blood stays in the arteries and veins that line your peritoneal cavity. Extra fluid and waste products are drawn out of your blood and into the dialysate. There are two major kinds of peritoneal dialysis.
There are several kinds of peritoneal dialysis but two major ones are: Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Continuous Cycling Peritoneal Dialysis (CCPD).
Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) is the only type of peritoneal dialysis that is done without machines. You do this yourself, usually four or five times a day at home and/or at work. You put a bag of dialysate (about two quarts) into your peritoneal cavity through the catheter. The dialysate stays there for about four or five hours before it is drained back into the bag and thrown away. This is called an exchange. You use a new bag of dialysate each time you do an exchange. While the dialysate is in your peritoneal cavity, you can go about your usual activities at work, at school or at home.
Continuous Cycling Peritoneal Dialysis (CCPD) usually is done at home using a special machine called a cycler. This is similar to CAPD except that a number of cycles (exchanges) occur. Each cycle usually lasts 1-1/2 hours and exchanges are done throughout the night while you sleep.
Dialysis does some of the work of healthy kidneys, but it does not cure your kidney disease. You will need to have dialysis treatments for your whole life unless you are able to get a kidney transplant.
Plastic surgery is the branch of surgery specializing in repairing and reconstructing missing or damaged tissue and skin, usually because of surgery, illness, injury or an abnormality present from birth.
The main aim of plastic surgery is to restore the function of tissues and skin to as close to normal as possible. Improving the appearance of body parts is an important, but secondary, aim.
Plastic surgery is different to cosmetic surgery, which is surgery carried out solely to change a healthy person’s appearance to achieve what they feel is a more desirable look. There are separate pages on cosmetic surgery.
Plastic surgery can be used to repair:
Plastic surgery can also help a person recover their self-esteem and confidence following surgery.
Plastic surgery is performed by plastic surgeons with extensive training who belong to professional associations. Most people are referred to BIMC Hospital Kuta plastic surgeons by their GP or a specialist consultant they see about their condition.
Plastic surgery uses a wide range of reconstructive techniques, but the main ones are:
As well as these main techniques, plastic surgeons use a wide range of other methods, such as fat transfer or grafting (where fat is removed from one area and inserted in another area, usually to correct unevenness), vacuum closure (where suction is applied to a wound through a sterile piece of foam to draw out fluid and encourage healing), camouflage make-up or cream, and prosthetic devices, such as artificial limbs.
BIMC Hospital Kuta has a skilled and compassionate team of professionals who are dedicated to working together to provide you with the highest level of care.
The team includes medical professionals, nurses, allied health professionals such as pharmacists and physiotherapists, support staff, social workers, spiritual staff, palliative care specialists and volunteer services.
The Department of Nephrology provides comprehensive health care for patients with different types of renal (kidney) diseases. Acute and chronic renal diseases caused by diabetes mellitus, hypertension, stone disease, infections, hereditary illness and poisons are diagnosed and managed.
Highly qualified and experienced physicians look after patients with various types of kidney diseases. The physicians are ably supported by a committed team of nurses, physician assistants, medical social workers and a renal nutritionist.
Patients with a severe degree of kidney failure cannot lead a comfortable life with medications and dietary restrictions alone. They need a treatment modality known as dialysis, a procedure to purify the blood by removing toxic substances.
The term chronic renal failure denotes a permanent loss of kidney function. When a person has suffered an irreversible loss of more than 90% of kidney function, the patient is diagnosed as having end-stage renal disease. Patients with end-stage renal disease undergo lifelong maintenance dialysis or a kidney transplant.
The department offers two types of dialysis; hemodialysis, in which the patient's blood is filtered by an artificial kidney and peritoneal dialysis, wherein a soft tube called a catheter is used to fill the abdomen with a cleansing liquid called dialysis solution. Those with end- stage renal disease are given the option of either hemodialysis or Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD).
Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients who have end-stage renal disease, wherein they have permanently lost over 90% of their kidney function. The only two options available to such patients are kidney transplantation or life-long dialysis.
The Department of Nephrology coordinates the comprehensive kidney transplantation program. All essential departments and laboratory support are provided under one roof. A state-of-the-art hemodialysis unit prepares patients for the transplant surgery. The unit has the latest computerized dialysis machines and monitors to ensure patient safety. The most well-equipped and modern operation theatres provide a safe surgical procedure for patients where experienced and qualified anaesthesiology, urology and vascular surgery teams work together.
Well-planned protocol-based postoperative care helps in prompt recovery after surgery. Transplant recipients are followed up on a regular basis by the transplant team.
The well-equipped clinical laboratories and imaging services offer the necessary facilities for investigating patients with kidney diseases. A powerful MRI, high-speed Spiral CT Scanner, and Gamma Camera provide clear images and functional renal evaluation.
Kidney biopsy is a diagnostic procedure used to diagnose different types of kidney diseases. Ultrasonogram guided spring loaded thin needle kidney biopsy reduces the complications of the procedure considerably.
