Minimally Invasive Services

You may remember back when surgery was called “going under the knife” and have visions of large scars from a surgery. But thanks to minimally invasive techniques like Laparoscopic Surgery, procedures can be performed with a less than one-inch incision — resulting in a more precise surgery and a quicker recovery for the patient.

  • Abdominoperineal Resection

  • 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.

  • Appendectomy

    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.
