When you choose ECU Physicians surgeons, you’ll receive care from compassionate professionals using the newest techniques and technology. Our approaches include minimally invasive procedures which use smaller incisions and reduce recovery time. Patients can return to their normal routines sooner.
We also use robotic assistance in some procedures including gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy), removal of the spleen (splenectomy) or removal of one or both of the adrenal glands (adrenalectomy), which are located above the kidneys and produce hormones including adrenaline. We have pioneered the use of the da Vinci robotic assistant in surgery. This device improves the surgeon’s own skill by increasing accuracy and precision, reducing tremors.
If you suffer from a hernia, we offer laparoscopic and robotically assisted hernia repair. We have expert procedures to repair damage to the esophagus caused by reflux, including the Nissen Fundoplication.
Laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder, and removal of colon sections as treatment for polyps, tumors or diverticulii are also suitable for many patients.
Your physician will refer you for a consultation, or you may call our office for more information about scheduling a surgical consultation.
