Cholecystectomy (koh-luh-sis-TEK-tuh-me) is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder — a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile — a digestive fluid produced in your liver.

Cholecystectomy may be necessary if you experience pain from gallstones that block the flow of bile. Cholecystectomy is a common surgery, and it carries only a small risk of complications. In most cases, you can go home the same day of your cholecystectomy.

Cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call this laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In some cases, one large incision may be used to remove the gallbladder. This is called an open cholecystectomy.

The surgical removal of leiomyomas (fibroids present in the uterus) is known as myomectomy. These fibroids are non-cancerous in nature and are most commonly seen in the uterus. These usually occur in the childbearing years, however, may also occur at any other age as well. The main purpose of the myomectomy procedure is to remove the fibroid from the patient’s body and then restore the uterus. There is another procedure known as hysterectomy which involves the removal of the whole uterus, but in myomectomy, only the fibroids are removed and the uterus remains intact. After the myomectomy procedure, the patients is relieved from the pain, uterine pressure, frequent urination, and heavy bleeding during the menstrual cycle.

A needle biopsy is a procedure to obtain a sample of cells from your body for laboratory testing. Common needle biopsy procedures include fine-needle aspiration and core needle biopsy. Needle biopsy may be used to take tissue or fluid samples from muscles, bones and organs, such as the liver or lungs.

Rectal prolapse surgery is a procedure to repair rectal prolapse. Rectal prolapse occurs when the last several inches of the large intestine (the rectum) becomes abnormally stretched and protrudes from the anus. Rectal prolapse surgery moves the rectum back to its proper place.

There are a number of ways to do rectal prolapse surgery. Your surgeon will suggest the appropriate one for you based on your condition and your overall health. Rectal prolapse surgery requires anesthesia and a hospital stay of one to several days.

Thyroidectomy is the removal of all or part of your thyroid gland. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck. It produces hormones that regulate every aspect of your metabolism, from your heart rate to how quickly you burn calories.

Thyroidectomy is used to treat thyroid disorders, such as cancer, noncancerous enlargement of the thyroid (goiter) and overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).

How much of your thyroid gland is removed during thyroidectomy depends on the reason for surgery. If only a portion is removed (partial thyroidectomy), your thyroid may be able to function normally after surgery. If your entire thyroid is removed (total thyroidectomy), you need daily treatment with thyroid hormone to replace your thyroid's natural function.

Vasectomy is a procedure that is performed for male birth control. This procedure is also known as ‘male sterilization’ or the “snip”. In this procedure, the supply of sperm to men’s semen is cut by cutting and sealing the tubes that carry sperm from the testes. Vasectomy is a very low risk procedure and can be performed in outpatient department with local anesthesia. This procedure is the better birth control option over other options for men. This process is simpler than female sterilization and is very cost effective.

Before getting into the procedure, the patients must be informed that he cannot become a father of a child in the future. After the procedure, it takes about three months for a man to produce sperm-free semen which means couples need to either abstain or use condom post vasectomy for 3months . It is estimated that around 15 out of 10,000 couples have a child after vasectomy.

Vasectomy is not meant to protect from any sexually transmitted diseases, and hence, a person should use condom to avoid such kind of diseases.

Nowadays, an advanced form of anesthetic process is used, during the Vasectomy procedure, wherein the scrotum is made numb and the patient feels less discomfort during the process.
