The Abdomen - General surgeons do a wide variety of abdominal procedures. We have the unique ability to treat many different problems and diseases.
Gallbladder - With the advent of laparoscopy we are able to perform your cholecystectomy with minimal pain and scarring. Many times we perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) where we are able to remove your gallbladder with only a 1 cm. incision. If you are having upper abdominal pain and have not had an utrasound of your gallbladder we are able to evaluate you and do the ultrasound here in our office.
Colon Surgery - Whether you have diverticular disease or a colon cancer we provide a wide range of surgery for all diseases of the Large Intestine. While many Colon operations require open and larger incisons, we are able to do most of our colon operations with minimally invasive techniques. We perform Laparoscopic Assisted Colostomies, Laparoscopic Assisted Low Anterior Resections, Laparoscopic Assisted Colostomy Reversals, and Laparoscopic Assisted Abdominal Perineal Resections. When indicated we are trained to use the da Vinci robot on some colon procedures.
Hemorrhoids and Anal Disease - While embarrassing hemorrhoids are a very common problem, issues can range from the acute pain of a Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid, to the chronic bleeding from Internal Hemorrhoids. We employ the newest and least painful approach for surgical hemorrhoid problems using a stapling technique (PPH Hemorrhoidectomy). Many times anorectal pain is not from hemorroids but other pathology like Anal Fissures, Anal Fistulas, or Perirectal Abcesses .We are happy to evaluate and treat all of your potential anorectal problems.
We are also fully trained in the latest THORACIC and GYNECOLOGICAL procedures.
