Our general surgeons are proficient in laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, utilizes a laparoscope which is a thin instrument that comprises of a specialized fiber-optic camera and light source. The laparoscope and small instruments are inserted through a very small incision (.05 to 1 cm) to perform the surgery. Images seen by the specialized camera can be projected onto a video monitor, giving the surgeon a clear view inside the surgical site.

Surgeries that are performed laparoscopically include:

  • Gallbladder surgery

  • Appendectomy

  • Hernia repair

  • Colon surgery

Smaller incisions, less pain, minimal scaring, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery time are just a few of the benefits of laparoscopic surgery.
