Frequently asked questions

Is there an age when surgery is prohibited?
No, it is always possible to operate if the patient passes the pre-operative tests.
Can hernias reappear after surgery?
The recurrence of a hernia depends on many factors: the consistency of the patient's tissues used for reconstruction, the surgical technique used, etc. Currently, with the use of prostheses made of resorbable synthetic materials, fewer than 1% are reproduced.
What are the causes of rectal bleeding?
The most common cause of bleeding from the anus is hemorrhoids, but it can also originate from fissures, rectitis and, in the most serious cases, polyps and/or tumors of the rectum and colon.
Is it necessary to operate when stones are detected in the gallbladder?
In general, when the existence of stones in the gallbladder is diagnosed, it is necessary to operate since, apart from the discomfort they cause, complications such as cholecystitis, pancreatitis, biliary colic, etc. can occur.
What kind of operations are performed on the thyroid gland?
When an operation is performed on the thyroid, it is always to remove it in whole or in part. The most frequent operations are the removal of one of the lobes and the isthmus (left or right hemithyroidectomy), of the entire gland (total thyroidectomy) or, on very rare occasions, almost all of it (subtotal thyroidectomy)
