- Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Services
You may remember back when surgery was called “going under the knife.” With the developments in surgical techniques, however, that’s not so true anymore. In fact, thanks to minimally invasive surgery procedures like endoscopy, the scalpel is no longer the primary tool we use in surgical procedures.
As an alternative, your doctor may utilize endoscopy to examine, diagnose, and treat various areas inside your body. An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube fitted with a light and camera. Our surgeons employ a number of different endoscopic procedures, including:
- Arthroscopy helps us see inside your joints.
- Bronchoscopy examines your airways and lungs.
- Colonoscopy examines your large intestine and rectum.
- Enteroscopy studies your small intestine.
- Laparoscopy explores your abdomen or pelvis.
- Sigmoidoscopy assesses the lower part of your colon.
- Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (EGD) examines your esophagus, stomach, and first part of the small intestine, also known as the duodenum.
Types of Surgery We Offer
Surgery to remove the anus, the rectum and part of the sigmoid colon through an incision made in the abdomen
Anti-Reflux (GERD) Surgery
A Nissen fundoplication, or laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication when performed via laparoscopic surgery, is a surgical procedure to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatal hernia.
The surgical removal of the appendix
Breast Cancer Surgery
Surgical removal of cancer within the breast
A biopsy is a surgical procedure to remove a small piece of tissue or cells from the body and viewed under a microscope. Samples are taken from tissue that appears to have an altered structure, which could be a tumor.
Central Venous Catheter
also known as a central line, central venous line, or central venous access catheter, is a catheter placed into a large vein. It is used to administer medication or fluids that are unable to be taken by mouth or would harm a smaller peripheral vein, obtain blood tests (specifically the "central venous oxygen saturation"), and measure central venous pressure.
Conditions We Treat
- Appendicitis (Appendectomy)
- Breast Cancer and Other Malignancies
- Digestive Disorders
- Gallbladder Conditions (Cholecystectomy)
- Melanoma and Other Benign Skin Lesions
- Thyroid Disorders
