Thanks. But for some reason, i am not keen on this hospital chain. Is there any clinic/dentist specialized in root canal in and around Bannerghatta Road/JP Nagar, B'lore? Please advice.

Hi, I was looking for an opinion on surgery for Piles.

My grandfather (87 years old) is suffering from Piles. We have consulted two different doctors who have given us two very different options for the surgery.

Doctor 1 has said that a major surgery is absolutely necessary to remove the tissue(?) as it has grown very long. (it seems my grandfather had neglected or was not aware about the problem all these years)

Doctor 2 has told us that he will do 'cryo-surgery' to remove the tissue(?). He says that Cryosurgery is a very minor operation and the patient will be discharged within 2 hours of the operation and that the wound will be as minimal as possible.

Medical history of my grandfather:
Bypass surgery done in 1995
Highly diabetic. Takes insulin shots 3 times a day
Had broken the hip bone 3 years back and not strong enough to walk. So, he is always in the wheel chair.

My queries:
1. What is the difference between a normal surgery and Cryo surgery?
2. Is Cryo Surgery effective? Doctor 1 says that it is effective for smaller cases and since the tissue(?) has grown very long in this case, it has to be removed by (normal) surgery. Doctor 2 says there is no problem.
3. What are the advantages/disadvantages of either surgeries given his condition?
4. My concern is that my grandfather may not be able to cope up with a major surgery. Although his heart condition is stable, he is still has diabetes and he is 87 years old and that will definitely hamper healing of the wound. Currently, he has a wound in his foot which he sustained last year and still yet to heal.

I know it will be confusing when I take opinions of more than one person. I never knew about cryo surgery until and uncle of mine (who is a doctor) suggested to check it out. So, please let me know your opinions. Thanks

For piles surgery, the best in the business is Dr. K Lakshman. He would be available in the evenings at shanti polyclinic in jayanagar for general consultation.

Please help me with valuable advice

I had a root canal treatment for my molar teeth 5 years ago , Recently the tooth break by half and my dentist extracted the tooth. My dentist is suggesting a permanant fixation of the lost molar by bridging the adjacent teeth after healing the extraction wounds.I have following questions

1. Is it safe to have a permanant fix by bridging (I dont know the exact techinical term) ?
2. Is there any feasible detachable fix ?.
3. What will be the life expectancy of permamant fix ?
4. Do i need to change it periodically ?
5. Is there is any other method of permant fixing (other than grinding the adjacant teeth and bridging them)

Bridges are durable if planned and done properly. Your other options if you don't want the adjacent teeth touched, are either an implant (expensive) or removable partial dentures (low cost).

Go for a bridge, they are permanent and will last you a long time. But go for ceramic bridges. Implants again is a good option if you don't want to involve the adjacent teeth but are pretty expensive.

2. Is there any feasible detachable fix ?. Ofcourse there is REMOVABLE DENTURE - but i would never advice to get one unless you have lost all your teeth. It is the cheapest option available for replacement.
3. What will be the life expectancy of permamant fix ? Depends on the dentist who does it. If you get the supporting teeth root canal treated before taking support from them to form a 3 unit bridge, it should last you for 5 yrs minimum.
4. Do i need to change it periodically ? It is supposed to be a permanent solution if you pick metal or metal ceramic crowns
5. Is there is any other method of permant fixing (other than grinding the adjacant teeth and bridging them) Ofcourse there is, and its called DENTAL IMPLANTS. The best possible treatment i would advice considering you dont need to disturb the adjacent normal teeth.

Go to a specialist, an endodontist or prosthodontist if you want fixed/ Removable denture.
Go to a specialist, Oral surgeon if you want an implant.

Cost -

Removable Denture = Rx500 - Rs 3000
Fixed
Root canal treatment for 2 teeth Rs 1500 -3500 X 2 = 3000-7000
+
Metal bridge = Rs 3000-5000
Metal-Ceramic bridge = Rs 5000 - 15000

Dental implant
Rs20000 - 50000

My aunt is diabetic. She has been asked to take sartel along side her other diabetes tablets. On asking as to why sartel was included, the doc said it was for protecting kidneys.

Is she better off to take a second opinion ?

No need to take a second opinion.

Diabetic Nephropathy is a micro vascular complication, which arises out of diabetes.

Certain class of antihypertensives are prescribed to arrest the progression of Diabetic Nephropathy.

Whats her age and for how long has she been a diabetic. (Type 1 or Type 2.?)

Whats her protienurea levels.?
