Laparoscopic Surgery


Laparoscopic surgery is the newest innovation in the field of general surgery and has become the standard of care for many surgical procedures. The surgeon uses a tiny camera to operate inside the body through a small lighted telescope connected to a video monitor. Because incisions are very small, laparoscopic surgery usually means outpatient surgery and a faster patient recovery time.

Cholecystectomy:

Removal of the gallbladder is one of the most common procedures performed by our surgeons. Many people have gallstones and may ultimately suffer symptoms as a result of these gallstones. The gallbladder can be successfully removed with a laparoscope (camera) in the majority of cases. This is accomplished in the day surgery setting, with rapid return to normal activities.

Nissen Fundoplication:

This laparoscopic procedure is performed for people with intractable gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD).  Patients are often referred by their gastroenterologist for this operation.

Splenectomy:

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purura is the most common indication for removal of the spleen laparoscopically. This is achieved in the day surgery setting, with rapid return to normal activities.

Hernia Surgery

Inguinal hernia:

Both men and women can develop inguinal (groin) hernias. These can cause pain and a bulge in the groin. Repair is performed through a small incision. We use a dual-layer mesh system and a pain pump in the majority of our repairs. This allows for rapid recovery and less post-operative pain than in the past.

Incisional hernia:

These hernias develop as a result of previous surgery. Repair usually requires the use of mesh. This can be performed open or in selective cases, with a laparoscope.

Umbilical hernia:

Hernias involving the belly button can cause pain and a bulge in the umbilicus. These can be repaired in the day surgery setting, with or without mesh.  ·
