Laparoscopic Surgery


Laparoscopic surgery is also known as “minimally invasive” surgery due to the extremely small incisions used to enter the body and perform surgery. It gets its name from the specialised camera, called a laparoscope, which is used to give surgeons a view of the affected area. Patients experience far less pain during and after laparoscopic surgery, recover far quicker and have minimal scarring to show for it.

Health Care Guidance & Advice

Air pollution can hurt your heart health and lungs too. About making restaurants, bars, and public areas smoke free for a better.

Diabetes on the rise

the most common form of diabetes, and for developing heart disease and stroke. Ask your health care provider about testing for pre-diabetes or diabetes if you have the following risk factors: a family history of diabetes; if you are overweight; have an inactive lifestyle (exercise less than three times a week).

Save A Life

Taking a CPR and first-aid class could help you save a life or the life of your child. The basic principles of CPR are respiratory arrest, choking, Heimlich maneuver, heart attack, stroke, cardiac arrest, breathing difficulties, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

Kidney Disease

Ten to twenty-one percent of all people with diabetes develop kidney disease, but it affects certain ethnic groups more than others. Blacks are over 5 times more likely to develop kidney disease. Kidneys are amazing organs. They filter wastes out of the blood and, at the same time, allow useful things, such as protein and red blood cells, to stay in the blood where they belong. Unfortunately, this filtering system can break down or fail completely. People who have diabetes for a long time may develop kidney disease. Factors such as genetics, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels all play a role. Generally, the first symptom is fluid buildup. Other symptoms include sleep loss, tiredness, poor appetite, upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, and difficulty concentrating. Sometimes people may not know they are having kidney problems. The best way to protect yourself against this complication of diabetes is to keep your blood sugar in your target range and see your doctor regularly. Your doctor will test your blood pressure and urine to measure how well your kidneys are working and catch problems before they become serious.
