Hallo liebes Team der Helios Klinik, ich möchte mich ganz herzlich bei der Dialyse und der Stadion P 5 bedanken. Ein besonderen Dank gehen an Herrn Dr. Tuerk - leider nicht mehr in der Klinik, Frau Dr. Vorberger, Frau Dr. Schmidtchen, Frau Dr Lembcke,Herrn Dr. Wolkewitz, Schwester Antje, Schwester Carina. Ich sage 1000 Dank - ich wart Spitze - und ich glaube eine kleine Gehaltserhöhung - würde gut zu passen. Zwinka, zwinka. Es gibt natürlich auch die Schattenseite - sehr arrogant - die müssen aufpassen das die nicht über ihre eigenen Füße stolpern. Professor Dr. Nürnberg und Frau Dr. Haefner. Setzen - die Note 6 wird erteilt. Die Beiden müssen noch viele Seminare der Menschlichkeit und wie gehe ich mit Angehörigen von sehr schwer kranken Menschen um. Bleibt alle gesund. Vielen lieben Dank - B. Wendt

    What you need to know about Gastrostomy in Schwerin

    Gastrostomy Surgical Procedure

    Gastrostomy is a surgical procedure to insert a tube (called a “g-tube”) through the abdomen and into the stomach. It is performed to temporarily or permanently give nutritional support directly to the stomach for patients who are not able to take nutrition by mouth. The procedure can also be done for gastric decompression.

    What does a Gastrostomy Procedure Involve?

    Gastrostomy can be performed under general or local anesthetic, ensure to discuss with your surgeon the best option for your case. There are three different methods for carrying out this procedure: laparoscopic, open surgery, and percutaneous (through the skin) endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). The most common one is the PEG procedure, in which your surgeon inserts an endoscope through the mouth and into the stomach to help them position the G-tube.

    How Long Should I Stay in Schwerin for a Gastrostomy Procedure?

    You will have to stay in the hospital for one to two days, but you may want to stay in Schwerin for 7 days. During your stay, your G-tube will be monitored and the nurses may teach you how to use and care for the tube.

You may need to schedule follow-up appointments with your local doctor.

    Are there Alternatives to Gastrostomy Procedures in Schwerin?

    The alternatives to gastrostomy are nasogastric (NG) feeding tubes and a jejunal tube. Nasogastric feeding tubes are usually short-term; it involves passing a tube through your nose into the stomach. A jejunal tube is placed in the small bowel.

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    Before having a gastrostomy tube, you may not be able to swallow or eat enough food, which prevents your body from getting all of the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that it requires.
