Patients who are suffering from hormone-related diseases should consult an internist or endocrinologist such as Dr. Jeremy Jones Robles. This field of expertise covers human functions including sensory perception, reproduction, coordination of metabolism, respiration, and movement. During the consultation, your family and medical history will be carefully assessed. If any abnormalities are found, the doctor will use standard laboratory testing to investigate the condition. You will also be informed if you need any special treatment. You may request for an official report of your diagnosis and prescribed treatment if needed. If you need immediate medical care and hospitalization, your doctor will make the arrangements so you can be admitted at the soonest possible time. Consultations are helpful in detecting various health problems, especially those that show only mild symptoms.
Minor Surgical ProceduresContact Clinic
A minor surgical procedure is a surgery that usually requires only local anesthesia and involves small skin incisions. Some procedures are also less serious and therefore may require only sedation or numbing medicine. These surgical procedures are also followed by short recovery periods. The most common minor surgeries performed by endocrinologists like Dr. Jeremy Jones Robles include thyroid nodule biopsy and thyroid cyst aspiration. These surgeries can be performed in consultation rooms, clinics, and dedicated treatment rooms, depending on the availability of equipment.
Thyroid Cyst Aspiration
A thyroid cyst aspiration, as the name implies, is a procedure wherein a cyst or an abnormal growth in the thyroid gland is aspirated to determine if it’s benign or cancerous. The leading procedure in use today is an ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration where the cyst is aspirated through a very thin needle. The whole procedure takes only half an hour, although you may be asked to stay in the clinic or hospital for a few more hours for observation and monitoring. You will also be allowed to eat and drink normally as well as to return to your normal activities after the procedure, provided that they are not too strenuous.
Thyroid Nodule Biopsy
A thyroid nodule biopsy is a procedure wherein a small tissue sample is taken from a nodule in the thyroid. A nodule is an abnormal growth inside the thyroid gland, causing a lump. Majority of thyroid nodules are non-cancerous and benign, but to rule out any risk of thyroid cancer and detect cancer early, it is best to have thyroid nodules evaluated. A thyroid nodule biopsy is usually performed through an FNA or fine needle aspiration, a non-surgical method that can determine whether a nodule is benign or malignant. The procedure involves placing a needle into the nodule repeatedly and aspirating cells through a syringe. These cells are then sent to a laboratory for examination. The biopsy procedure is characterized by some pressure and mild discomfort in the neck. It is normal to feel some soreness and tenderness for a couple of days following the procedure.
Wound dressing is a procedure performed to manage wounds after initial treatment has been administered. It comes in different techniques and various dressing materials may be used, which are chosen depending on the size and severity of the wound, as well as its cause, such as whether it is a surgical wound or is caused by acute trauma. The main goals of wound dressing are to reduce pain, apply compression, immobilize the injured body part (if necessary), protect the wound and the surrounding tissue against infection, and promote faster healing. Wound dressing is the last step in wound management following wound assessment and investigation, wound cleansing, and wound closure.
