Stomach Cancer Surgical OptionsIf you have been diagnosed with stomach cancer, you more than likely will have to have all or part of your stomach removed. This surgical procedure is called a gastrectomy. A gastrectomy is one of the most common treatments for stomach cancer. If you have been diagnosed and desire more information on this particular procedure as well as any alternative options you might have available to you, please contact Dr. Elijah Mobley today.
Stomach Acid Disease Surgical OptionsStomach acid disease is common in the general population. This disease ultimately causes the stomach to produce too much acid, and can ultimately lead to the formation of uncomfortable and painful ulcers in the stomach. Many patients are able to manage this condition through diet changes and prescription medications, but surgery is an option that patients can consider. Some surgical operations will cut the connection to the stomach nerve, which produces acid in the stomach. Partial stomach removal can also be a treatment for this disease. Another surgical option that patients can consider is the pyloric sphincter release, which removes the lower part of the stomach so food can pass more easily into the intestines.
Gastric Bypass SurgeryGastric bypass surgery also is known as bariatric surgery. This operation is increasing in popularity due to its effectiveness in helping obese patients lose a significant amount of weight. During this operation, a part of the stomach and a portion of the small intestine is removed to help patients better control the amount of food they eat and process each day.
Stomach Dumping Surgical OptionsPatients with this disorder will find that their stomach moves food too quickly into the intestinal track, causing patients to be uncomfortable. Surgical treatment for this condition usually involves rebuilding the pyloric sphincter muscle in order to provide better control for the patient. Previous stomach surgery patients may find that this condition is a side effect of their original operation and the first operation must be reversed.
If you have any of the symptoms associated with these conditions or you feel that you have stomach issues that need to be addressed, set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Elijah Mobley as soon as possible. Stomach issues can lead to serious complications, and you do not want to have to have more extensive or invasive surgical procedures down the line. Dr. Elijah Mobley is known for his caring bedside manner and calm demeanor, and he will help you identify the cause of your symptoms and create a plan to address them.
