In today’s medical landscape, surgeries are bit easily prescribed for a wide range of health conditions. While some surgeries are essential and life-saving, there are instances where surgeries may not be the best option or compulsion. This blog aims to shed light on the importance of avoiding surgeries whenever possible and explores the innovative PANMED therapy, which includes laser therapy, as an alternative viable approach for avoiding risk of surgery, anesthesia, & hospitalization while aiming to preserve great divine design of the body.
Understanding Essential Surgeries:
It is crucial to acknowledge that certain surgeries are indispensable and can save lives, organs, or provide excellent curative outcomes. These include surgeries such as removing foreign bodies from the trachea, creating an anus for babies born without one, repairing cleft palates, or relieving acute intestinal obstruction. Essential surgeries play a vital role in addressing specific acute or chronic problems, such as hernias or hydroceles, for which surgical intervention is the most effective solution.
Why Should Surgeries Be Avoided?
For the surgeries which are not must, or which do not provide long term better solution, there are several reasons to avoid them & consider other options:
Scientifically Unproven Surgeries: Surprisingly, many surgeries lack scientific evidence to support their effectiveness. Unlike new drugs that undergo rigorous double-blind trials and approval from regulatory authorities like the FDA, surgical procedures are often introduced without the same level of scrutiny. Even experienced surgeons may not know if the procedures they have been performing for years are scientifically proven or not.
Limited Scope of Complete Treatment: It is essential to understand that some surgeries offer only partial relief or temporary solutions. For example, gallstone or renal stone removal surgeries alleviate immediate symptoms but fail to address the underlying tendency to form stones. Similarly, spine surgeries executed for arteries of heart, or degenerative diseases of spine or prolapsed intervertebral discs may provide temporary relief, but they do not offer long-lasting cure.
Surgical Solutions to be reconsidered: In some cases, surgeries can be more challenging and terrifying than the initial problem, especially when surgeons overlook alternative approaches. For instance, amputations due to peripheral artery blockages or non-healing wounds may seem like drastic measures when innovative PANMED therapy can often save limbs. Complications from spine surgeries, such as paralysis or loss of bladder or anal control, can have severe consequences. Few knee replacement surgeries may even lead to leg amputations.
Surgeries Based on Incorrect Assumptions: Surgeries performed under incorrect assumptions can be easily avoided. There is amazing world of knowledge beyond any stream of medicine. Examples include total hip replacements for avascular necrosis (AVN), prostate removal for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), deviated nasal septum (DNS) surgeries for chronic nasal blockage, or appendectomies for appendicitis. It is crucial to explore alternative therapies and seek second opinion to avoid unnecessary surgeries.
Optional Surgeries: Many surgeries are not mandatory and can be considered as optional. With the advent of novel PANMED therapy, a majority of cases involving DNS, tonsils, appendix, varicose veins, slip discs, prostate issues, mastoids, hysterectomy for small fibroids, piles, fissures, hip replacements for AVN, knee replacements for moderate osteoarthritis, lung transplants for fibrosis, and more can often be managed without surgical intervention.
Ways to Avoid Surgery:
To ensure patients make well-informed decisions, it is imperative for surgeons to provide comprehensive information through a “surgery advice form.” This document should include:
- Explanation of the recommended surgery, its purpose, and reasons.
- Details of the specific procedure and anesthesia involved.
- Expected outcomes and the probability of achieving desired results.
- Alternative options to surgery, if available.
- Post-surgery care instructions (e.g., tobacco avoidance after angioplasty or stent procedures).
- Awareness of potential risks even in RARE cases
Innovative PANMED therapy, including laser therapy, presents a compelling alternative to surgeries in many cases. By understanding the limitations and potential risks associated with surgeries, patients can make informed decisions about their health. It is crucial to explore non-invasive treatment options, seek second opinion, and consider therapies that offer long-lasting solutions rather than temporary relief. With PANMED therapy, patients can potentially avoid surgeries and experience safer, more effective, and noninvasive, OPD treatments for avoiding wide range of surgeries. Embracing this innovative approach can lead to improved outcomes, reduced healthcare costs, and a greater focus on safety. It is essential to consult with medical professionals experienced in Laser Medicine & PANMED therapy to explore the best treatment PANMED options tailored to individual needs and conditions. Together, let us embrace the possibilities of innovative therapies and move towards a future of medicine where surgeries are minimally required.
