Laparoscopic surgery also referred to as minimally invasive surgery describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments. During the surgical procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions. The camera and the instruments are then introduced through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient.
The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor. The surgeon is not able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes in laparoscopy surgery, since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure.
Benefits of minimally invasive or laparoscopic procedures are
The human hand performs many functions during surgery that are difficult to reproduce with laparoscopic instruments. The loss of the ability to place the hand into the abdomen during traditional laparoscopic surgery has limited the use of laparoscopy for complex abdominal surgery on the pancreas, liver and bile duct.
Hand-access devices are new laparoscopic devices that allows the surgeon to place a hand into the abdomen during laparoscopic surgery and perform many of the different functions with the hand that were previously possible only during open surgery. The physicians at RS JIH have utilized these new devices to develop a variety of laparoscopic pancreatic, liver and biliary procedures such as the Whipple operation, distal pancreatectomy and liver resection that were not possible previously by standard laparoscopic techniques.
Laparoscopic surgery for liver, pancreas and bile duct disease have had considerable success in the hands of experts. Patients with laparoscopic surgery have much shorter hospital stays, less pain, rapid recovery and early return to work compared to patients with open surgical procedures.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a 24-bed tertiary referral center for critically ill infants requiring complex medical and surgical care. It is an exciting innovative environment where highly specialized physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and support staff collaborate in the care of critically ill infants and their families. A multidisciplinary team provides technologically advanced therapies and family-centered care for infants from local, regional and international points of origin. The NICU works closely with the Advanced Fetal Care Center to coordinate both prenatal consultation and postnatal intensive care for infants with a wide range of prenatally diagnosed conditions. Neonatology attendings, pediatric surgical residents, and either neonatal nurse practitioners or pediatrician hospitalists are available on the unit 24 hours a day.
Cardiac catheterization (also called cardiac cath or coronary angiogram) is an invasive imaging procedure that allows your doctor to evaluate your heart function. Cardiac catheterization is used to:
During a cardiac catheterization, a long, narrow tube called a catheter is inserted through a plastic introducer sheath (a short, hollow tube that is inserted into a blood vessel in your leg or arm). The catheter is guided through the blood vessel to the coronary arteries with the aid of a special x-ray machine.
Contrast material is injected through the catheter and x-ray movies are created as the contrast material moves through the heart’s chambers, valves, and major vessels. This part of the procedure is called a coronary angiogram (or coronary angiography).
Coronary artery disease is the narrowing or blockage of the coronary (heart) arteries. After an interventional procedure, the coronary artery is opened, increasing blood flow to the heart.
The digital photographs of the contrast material are used to identify the site of the narrowing or blockage in the coronary artery.
Additional imaging procedures, called intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and fractional flow reserve (FFR), may be performed along with cardiac catheterization in some cases to obtain detailed images of the walls of the blood vessels. Both of these imaging procedures are currently only available in specialized hospitals and research centers.
With IVUS, a miniature sound probe (transducer) is positioned on the tip of a coronary catheter. The catheter is threaded through the coronary arteries and, using high-frequency sound waves, produces detailed images of the inside walls of the arteries. IVUS produces an accurate picture of the location and extent of plaque.
With FFR, a special wire is threaded through the artery and a vasodilator medication is given. This test is functionally performing a very high-quality stress test for a short segment of the artery.
An interventional procedure (also called angioplasty) is a non-surgical treatment used to open narrowed coronary arteries to improve blood flow to the heart. An interventional procedure can be performed during a diagnostic cardiac catheterization when a blockage is identified, or it may be scheduled after a catheterization has confirmed the presence of coronary artery disease.
Interventional procedures include balloon angioplasty, stent placement, rotablation or cutting balloon.
Overview list of the major groups of professional practitioners currently found in RS JIH can be seen below:
Neuroscience is a fascinating medical arena where physicians and scientists work to unlock the mysteries of the human brain and central nervous system. At Rumah Sakit JIH, the multidisciplinary neuroscience services combine medicine and clinical programs with scientific research, technology, leading-edge surgical techniques and education to improve the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease.
The physicians are pioneering breakthrough approaches for diagnosis and treatment, including computerized imaging systems, cutting edge surgical interventions and the latest generation of medication therapies.
At RS JIH, the patients receive comprehensive care from an interdisciplinary team that includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, pediatric neurologists, pediatric neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, vascular surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and specialists from other related fields.
