The healthcare sector uses new innovative technologies to fight against acute diseases, which is even less expensive for the patients.
FREMONT, CA: In the last few years, surgical care science has advanced immensely due to advanced technologies. Complicated processes like neurosurgery (brain surgery), laparoscopic surgery, xenotransplants (organs transplanted from non-human animals), coronary artery bypass surgery, natural and artificial organ transplants, and laser surgery were rare but not entirely unknown. These processes are becoming more popular nowadays. Due to the excessive use of the internet, telemedicine has also become a probability because soon, the surgeons can operate on the patients remotely with live webcasts.
Nowadays, the surgeries have become less invasive due the patients do not have to stay in the hospital for long. Due to the system, the entire expense of the process has reduced drastically in terms of financial costs to the patients and the patients' recovery costs related to loss of wages, physical and emotional strain. Advancements in surgeries and medical technologies have helped several people live a healthy and longer life than ever before. With the help of technological advancement, it is possible to eliminate various chronic diseases like cancer, which can be fatal and cause death from the patient's body.
The popularity of laser surgery is also increasing among healthcare providers and patients. The surgeons use the laser to conduct various processes that also include laparoscopic surgeries. For example, presently, the laser is utilized to excise the cancerous tissues from the larynx, reshape the cornea of the eye so that the patient can have better visibility, and to resurface the skin of a patient's face by burning off the old layers of skin and allow new skin to grow. The increasing popularity of lasers as a surgical process is primarily because of its ability to destroy unwanted tissues without bleeding accurately.
Another advancement made in surgical techniques is combating cardiovascular diseases. Today's lifestyle or genetic issue in many people allows the fatty acids to build in the artery walls of a person's heart, ultimately blocking the artery from preventing any flow from it and resulting in cardiac arrest. The surgeons have created a new technique known as angioplasty, which will help them fight against cardiovascular disease.
