The latest advances made by doctor Delgado focus on the importance of food intake in order to correctly diagnose and treat digestive system problems
With more than 30 years of experience, doctor Victoria Delgado Díaz is a proctology specialist currently active and is a team leader at the Quirón Ruber San Camilo Hospital in Madrid.
Doctor in Medicine and Surgery from the Autonomous University of Madrid and specialist in General Surgery and Digestive Diseases at the Hospital 12 de Octubre in Madrid, Delgado has an extensive experience in the treatment of the digestive system and general surgery. She is a specialist in thyroid gland surgery and little invasive laparoscopic surgery, that has high benefits in the treatment and recovery of the patient.
Laparoscopic surgery is a technique of approaching the inside of the abdomen with minimal incisions, offering great advantages for both doctors and patients. This technique allows the surgeon to operate with better vision and safety, resulting in less pain and better recovery for the patient. Laparoscopy is especially indicated for gallbladder, reflux, colon and rectum surgery
Alongside the new technics that the doctor puts into practice, following the line of little invasive techniques, the doctor also uses diode laser hemorrhoidectomy, an effective and complete technique that can be performed by sedation with local infiltration or regional anesthesia. This type of surgery is used in patients whose dietary measures or other medical treatments have not worked. Delgado Díaz emphasizes the importance of seeking the best advice and visiting a proctology expert with knowledge of intestinal dysbiosis, in order to receive the best diagnosis associated with the best treatment.
Doctor’s latest studies focus on the analysis of food intolerances and their influence on the development of digestive diseases or lesions in the rectal canal. Provided that, the expert highlights in her blog that "patients are usually misdiagnosed with problems such as irritable bowel, hiatus hernia, gastritis caused by a bacteria, fibromyalgia, candidiasis, stress headaches". In these cases, patients undergo treatments that do not solve their problems, and even get worse, because it treats the symptom or complication and does not look for the real cause of the problem.
These patients have very common symptoms, such as gas, bloating and abdominal noises, burning, constipation and diarrhea, which hide conditions that are often hereditary and, in many cases, associated with autoimmune diseases, such as hypothyroidism. The diagnosis of the foods that cause malabsorption or intolerance, with the analysis of fermentation and imbalance in the intestinal flora, allows the appropriate treatment to be indicated with excellent results, in many cases achieving the healing and avoiding rectal surgery. Even in patients who will inevitably go through the operating room, food control helps the immediate and long-term results be excellent.
Apart from the medical experience that doctor Delgado Díaz has, she adds her contribution to teaching, and her work as a surgeon in the jungle of Guatemala, health education programs in surgery, gynecology and obstetrics in the Mayan population.
