Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery techniques allow surgical repairs to be made using several small incisions, rather than one large incision.  These types of procedures can reduce postoperative pain and allow a quicker recovery for many patients.  Our surgeons offer expertise in the following laparoscopic and minimally invasive procedures.

Gallbladder Removal (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy)

Removal of the gallbladder and gallstones.

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

Repair of incisional hernias and groin bulges with a prosthetic patch.

Reflux Disease (Laparoscopic Nissen)

Surgical treatment may offer relief from symptoms associated with reflux, such as heartburn, vomiting, regurgitation and hiatal hernia.

Removal of Spleen (Laparoscopic Splenectomy)

When the spleen is damaged or enlarged, surgical removal may be recommended.

Colon Disorders

Our surgeons offer several laparoscopic surgical options for treatment of colon disorders. Visit our Laparoscopic Colon Surgery page for details.

Adrenal Diseases (Adrenalectomy)

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy can be performed for functional and non-functional adrenal lesions with minimal morbidity and a very short hospital stay.

If you think you may have one of these types of problems, call 252-744-2393 for an appointment with one of our physicians.
