Services We Offer
Refers to any surgical operation on abdominal organs including the stomach, gallbladder, small intestine, large intestine, appendix, liver, pancreas, spleen, esophagus and appendix. The procedures may be performed for a variety of reasons including infection, obstruction, tumors or inflammatory bowel disease.
Surgery to remove the anus, the rectum and part of the sigmoid colon through an incision made in the abdomen. The end of the intestine is attached to an opening in the surface of the abdomen and body waste is collected in a disposable bag outside of the body.
Many times, appendectomy is an emergency procedure to remove an infected appendix before or after it ruptures. Appendicitis is a life-threatening condition that can occur only a day or two after the patient feels symptoms. Doctors may recommend surgical removal of the appendix when patients begin having symptoms to remove the organ before it ruptures.
Breast Cancer Surgery
This is the most common treatment for breast cancer. It seeks to remove cancer from the breast and anywhere else in the body it may have spread.
This is the surgical removal of the gallbladder and is sometimes recommended to patients with painful or serious conditions affecting the gallbladder. Surgical gallbladder removal eliminates symptoms of pain, nausea and stops the spread of disease. The gallbladder stores bile that is used for digestion, but the organ can be removed without affecting quality of life.
This is a surgical procedure used to treat colon cancer. The surgery involves removing a portion of the colon, or large intestine — usually about one-third to one-fourth of it. The surgeon will typically remove the portion of the colon that appears cancerous, as well as another small portion on either side of the cancerous part. The remaining parts of the colon are then attached to each other.
