Gall bladder surgery – Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

The gall bladder is a pear-shaped organ, about the size of a golf ball, that lies just beneath the right side of the liver. Its main function is to act as a reservoir to collect and concentrate bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver. Bile, which is a clear golden yellow liquid, is needed for digesting fats in the food we eat. After eating, bile is released from the gall bladder and travels down tubular channels (bile ducts) into the small intestines for fatty food digestion.

Piles (Haemorrhoids)

The lining of the anus contains three clumps (cushions) of soft and spongy paddings that help to act as an extra seal to keep the anus closed to prevent leakage of mucus . The mucus lubricates the faeces so that it can be passed out easily. These spongy pads (piles) are supported in the anus by connecting tissues and contain tiny blood vessels. Piles become problematic when connecting structures no longer hold the piles in place and the piles begin to slip down the anal canal.

Stomach (Gastric) Cancer

The stomach lies in the upper part of the abdomen, just below the ribs. It has an important role in food digestion. The food that we eat passes down the oesophagus (gullet) and into the stomach. The stomach produces acid and enzymes to help digest the food. Once broken down, the food then passes into the small intestine for further digestion. Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, develops when the cells lining the stomach wall become abnormal and grow uncontrollably.

Colorectal cancer is the cancer of the colon and rectum. It is also known as bowel cancer or cancer of the large intestine. Colorectal cancer is the most common cancer in Singapore and the second most common cause of death after heart disease. Colorectal cancer usually begins as polyps that develop as a result of errors in the way cell grow and repair in the lining of the colon or rectum. Majority of polyps are benign but some have the potential to become cancerous.
