Digestive System Surgery
The Digestive System Surgery Department at WOX clinic is made up of specialists in the surgical treatment of gastrointestinal, endocrine and abdominal wall diseases.
It is a Centre of reference in the treatment of certain procedures, such as the different types of gastrointestinal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, morbid obesity, the complex pathology of gastroesophageal reflux, pathology of and advanced laparoscopic surgery (obesity, colon, adrenal glands, gallstones, spleen and gastroesophageal reflux).
Colon and inflammatory bowel surgery:
The Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery specializes in surgical and multimodal treatments for lower digestive tract diseases such as colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
Colorectal surgery is used to treat certain conditions of the colon, anus and rectum that have not responded to other, more conservative measures such as medications or lifestyle changes.
At WOX CLINIC, the procedure that we perform most often is the colectomy, The colectomy is a procedure that resects (or removes) some part of the large intestine, also called the colon.
Colectomies are indicated for certain forms of colon cancer as well as severe cases of other diseases such as diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and injury to the large intestine. Oftentimes, when the procedure is not an emergency, a patient will have time to speak to their surgeon about their options, as there are considerations that should be discussed.
In the days leading up to the colectomy, the doctor will suggest that the patient stops taking certain medications.
Fasting before surgery is also required and drinking a solution such as a laxative that clears your bowels. In some cases, a doctor may prescribe antibiotics to prevent any infection from occurring.
Gastric bypass surgery or Sleeve gastrectomy?
Gastric bypass surgery : is considered the world’s leading method for effectively treating morbid obesity.
Functions of the gastric bypass surgery are Decreases the amount of food, you can intake during a meal and changes the gut hormones, Absorption of nourishment will be much slower, you will consume considerably fewer calories.
Sleeve gastrectomy :is the most commonly performed bariatric surgery worldwide.
In sleeve gastrectomy, part of the stomach is removed, reducing its capacity by approximately two-thirds.
Reducing the size of the stomach limits intake of food. Additionally, removing the part of the stomach that secretes hormones causes hunger to decrease.
There are several things to consider when trying to decide between gastric bypass surgery and gastric sleeve surgery. Unlike the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (Lap Band), these two operations are both permanent, reduce hunger, and lead to the highest percentage of weight loss. To properly compare gastric sleeve surgery to gastric bypass surgery we will examine the following data :
Time of surgery.
Expected weight loss.
Speed of weight loss.
Gastric sleeve benefits over bypass
Risk of complications.
Surgeon skill and preference.
An experienced surgeon should review your medical information as well as your lifestyle.
It often takes a third party to notice habits that you may not be aware you’ve created. Certain habits, like severe binge or emotional eating are difficult to stop. Gastric bypass may be more appropriate for you. Your surgeon has seen many patients and has records of their success and failures. Because of these unique insights your surgeon’s opinion should not be discounted

What is an organ transplant?
An organ transplant involves removing a healthy organ from one person and surgically placing it in another person. The person who is giving the healthy organ is called the donor. The person who is receiving the healthy organ is called the recipient. Depending on the organ that’s being donated, the donor may be dead or alive.
Organ transplant is the last suggested procedure in cases of organ failure, and is undertaken only in critical cases and emergency medical situations. In such situations, at the critical end of organ failure, a healthy organ/organs for transplant from a person living or deceased is transplanted into the organ transplant recipient, offering them a new chance of survival.
Organ transplant donation helps people suffering from chronic illnesses to live a more fulfilled life and a healthier one up to a normal lifespan. Organ transplantation may be required in cases of genetic organ defects such as congenital heart defects or polycystic kidney disease, and in such cases, medication can fall short of making a difference in lifestyle or lifespan of the patient.
Organs for transplant include the lungs, heart, pancreas, kidneys, liver and intestine, and transplants for the face and body are also being undertaken more recently.
Humans have two kidneys, one on each side of the upper abdominal region of the body.
The right kidney is located slightly lower than the left one so that there is space to accommodate the liver, which is situated immediately above the right kidney.
They are each around 5-6 inches in length and approximately the size of a big fist.
Kidneys are an essential part of the human mechanism, helping to filter out toxins from the blood, and ensuring an electrolyte balance that allows the body to function normally, It also regulates blood pressure by producing hormones that maintain the pressure ..
When the kidneys do not do their job, toxic waste builds up in the body ..
Although humans have two kidneys, the body is capable of surviving with only one functioning kidney.
Kidney failure can be contained by either dialysis or kidney transplants ..
-When kidneys stop functioning, patients are put through the dialysis treatment. It is a process that filters waste from the blood mechanically, and performs the job that the kidneys are unable to.
-A kidney transplant is a surgery done to replace a diseased or dysfunctional kidney in a person with a healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor.
Kidney transplant, also called renal transplant, is performed to treat kidney failure in humans.
In cases where dialysis is ruled out for the patient due to the severity of the kidney failure or overall health conditions, an organ transplant surgery is suggested. Either one, or both kidneys may be replaced for such patients.
A single kidney transplant usually involves a living organ transplant donor and both of them are put on specialized diets and medication to reduce chances of organ transplantation complications such as rejection of the donor organ or blood infections.
Patients with cancer, hepatitis or cardiovascular disease are not chosen as candidates for most organ transplant processes, including kidney transplant.
Receiving a kidney from a living relative reduces the chance of rejection of the organ and is suggested as a better choice of organ transplant. This also enables the patient awaiting transfer to bypass the wait of many years to receive the organ transplant.
- A liver transplant surgery is recommended when the liver gets damaged, and it is beyond the body’s regenerative capacity to repair and heal.
- End-stage liver disease, especially cirrhosis of the liver due to alcohol abuse, is the most common reason for organ transplant surgery for the liver. Other causes may include chronic hepatitis B or chronic hepatitis C, autoimmune hepatitis, metabolic disorders and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, surgery vary depending on the age of the patient
- In cases of irreversible liver disease, a patient’s unhealthy liver is removed and replaced with either a portion of a liver from a living donor, such as a relative, or with a complete healthy liver from a deceased donor. the organ transplant success rate for liver transplants is relatively high.
Bone Marrow Transplant
- The Bone Marrow Transplant Program at “wox clinic” Health System has been at the forefront of the field in treating hematological malignancies with bone marrow transplants , Hematologic malignancies are cancers that affect a patient’s blood or lymph system.
- Bone Marrow Transplant can successfully treat a variety of cancers and other conditions that are resistant to other forms of care.
- Bone Marrow Transplant is a standard option for the treatment of certain types of diseases. Additionally, the program’s doctors and researchers continue to research and conduct clinical trials to find ways to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
there are three Types of Bone Marrow Transplant:
- Autologous transplant: An autologous transplant uses the patient’s own stem cells.
- Allogeneic transplant: An allogeneic transplant uses stem cells collected from another adult. The donor may be a sibling of the patient or an unrelated person identified through a donor registry.
- Cord transplant: Another source of stem cells is the umbilical cord blood of a related or unrelated birth of a child.
Your doctor will determine if a bone marrow transplant will benefit you, and if so, which type of BMT will be most effective in treating your condition.
