Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure to create a hole by making an incision in the windpipe or trachea, through the neck. The trachea is the windpipe, 4 inches in length and it starts just below the voice box, known as larynx. Tracheostomy is done when the normal airway or breathing route through the nose or mouth is obstructed. Tracheostomy is helpful in proper breathing till the patient is on a long-term ventilator or in accident cases, where the airway gets suddenly blocked after a traumatic injury to neck or face. This procedure involves the use of a tube (tracheostomy tube/Trach tube) which is put in the tracheal opening to keep the breathing undisturbed. The tracheostomy tube is placed below the vocal cords. A tracheostomy can be a permanent procedure or temporary. If a tracheostomy is not needed anymore, the hole is either closed surgically or allowed to heal.

Transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP) is a type of prostate surgery done to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by prostate enlargement, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

During TUIP, a combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The urethra is surrounded by prostate tissue. The doctor cuts one or two small grooves in the area where the prostate and the bladder are connected (bladder neck) in order to open up the urinary channel. This allows urine to pass through more easily.

TUIP is one of the options for treating urinary symptoms caused by BPH. To determine whether TUIP or another treatment is a good option for you, your doctor will consider how severe your symptoms are, what other health problems you have, and the size and shape of your prostate.

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a type of prostate surgery done to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

During TURP, a combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The urethra is surrounded by the prostate. Using the resectoscope, your doctor trims away excess prostate tissue that's blocking urine flow and increases the size of the channel that allows you to empty your bladder.

TURP is one of the most effective options for treating urinary symptoms caused by BPH. To determine whether TURP or another treatment is the right choice for you, your doctor will consider how severe your symptoms are, what other health problems you have, and the size and shape of your prostate.

Vaginal hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus through the vagina. During a vaginal hysterectomy, the surgeon detaches the uterus from the ovaries, fallopian tubes and upper vagina, as well as from the blood vessels and connective tissue that support it. The uterus is then removed through the vagina.

Vaginal hysterectomy involves a shorter time in the hospital, lower cost and faster recovery than an abdominal hysterectomy, which requires an incision in your lower abdomen. However, if your uterus is enlarged, vaginal hysterectomy may not be possible.

Hysterectomy often includes removal of the cervix as well as the uterus. When the surgeon also removes one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes, it's called a total hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy (sal-ping-go-o-of-uh-REK-tuh-me). Located in your pelvis, all these organs are part of your reproductive system.

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.
