Laparoscopic Surgery

In minimally invasive surgery, we operate with less injury to the body than with open surgery. In general, it is safer than open surgery and allows you to recover faster and heal with less pain and scarring. Minimally invasive surgery requires only a short hospital stay.

Laparoscopy — surgery done through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and tiny video cameras and surgical instruments.

Below of a list of the most common laparoscopic surgeries that we perform:

Endoscopy is a procedure used to examine the digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color monitor.
During an upper endoscopy, an endoscope is easily passed through the mouth and throat and into the esophagus, allowing the doctor to view the tube from mouth to stomach, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine.

Similarly, endoscopes can be passed into the large intestine (colon) through the rectum to examine this area of the intestine. This procedure is called sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy depending on how far up the colon is examined.
