If you are feeling a constant twinge in your side, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our world-renowned surgeons, who use the most advanced surgical techniques and technologies to treat your appendicitis.
Appendicitis is very common and occurs when the appendix becomes infected and inflamed. Your appendix is a small sack that extends from the first part of the large intestine.
Symptoms often start with a dull ache around the lower part of your belly, but the pain can quickly become sharp. It usually moves toward the lower right part of the abdomen and stays in this area.
Appendicitis is often misdiagnosed, as the symptoms are shared with many other medical abdominal conditions. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to consult an experienced physician who can accurately diagnose your condition and swiftly treat it to avoid life-threatening complications.
The recommended treatment for appendicitis is almost always surgery, which is usually scheduled within 24 hours of the onset of appendicitis. Without surgery, the appendix can rupture and spread infection throughout your body.
Our surgeons are highly experienced in the treatment of appendicitis, through minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical technology and techniques that seamlessly remove the appendix – known as an appendectomy. Recovery is usually quick and uncomplicated, with the majority of patients leaving the hospital the next day.
More importantly, our team of world-renowned surgeons have saved countless lives, and have enabled countless more to live healthy, happy lives.
