The benefits of laparoscopic surgery are substantial:
● Minimal postoperative recovery time.
● Minimal scarring with good cosmetic results.
● Most laparoscopic procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.
This minimally invasive approach may be what you have been postponing your needed surgery for.
Since the 1990s, there have been exciting technical advances in laparoscopic surgery. The idea of minimally invasive surgery with laparoscopic techniques offers patients the added advantage of minimal pain with quick recovery. Our combined surgical experience of greater than 60 years of doing laparoscopic surgery places our group of surgeons in an elite group with levels of experience and expertise that is unparalleled in the surgical community. With greater than 40% of our elective surgical cases being done laparoscopically, this reflects our commitment and emphasis to minimally invasive surgery.
The techniques of laparoscopic surgery now allows us to offer many surgical procedures on an outpatient basis with as little as one week recovery period. The surgical services that we commonly offer as laparoscopic surgery are as follows:
● Gall Bladder surgery
● Appendix surgery
● Hernia surgery – including groin, abdominal wall, diaphragm including hiatal hernia.
● All facets of GYN surgery including hysterectomy, ovaries, and tubal ligation.
● Anti-reflux surgery (Nissen fundoplication) for severe and incapacitating heartburn problems.
● Bladder Suspension Surgery
● Gastric, small and large intestine surgery associated with cancer, infection, ulcer, or other inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract.
● Subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery (SEPS), minimally invasive surgery to treat chronic leg wounds that is secondary to venous disease.
The patient’s surgical condition and all associated medical factors are carefully weighed to determine if one is indeed a candidate for laparoscopic surgery.
