Gastric and general surgeries focus on abdominal organs, including esophagus, stomach, bowels, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and the thyroid gland. They also deal with hernias. Most gastric and general procedures can be done via laparoscopy. Our surgeons can use laparoscopic surgical techniques, involving smaller instruments connected to cameras through which they view the surgical site.  The procedures listed here do not represent the complete range of procedures available.  If the procedure or treatment you need is not outlined, please inquire about its availability and protocol.

Bariatric operations are major gastrointestinal procedures that alter the digestive system’s capacity or anatomy. This is achieved by modification of the gastrointestinal tract to reduce nutrient intake and/or absorption.  Bariatric surgeries can be restrictive - like Lap Band®, malabsorptive, like Biliopancreatic diversion and a combination of both such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.  The first type of surgical procedure simply reduces the size of the stomach, using staples and/or a band, resulting in a drastic reduction in the quantity of food it can ingest. The third reduces stomach capacity and bypasses the upper part of the small intestine, causing a reduction in the number of calories and nutrients which the body absorbs. Some bariatric procedures are performed via a midline abdominal incision. The term does not include procedures for surgical removal of body fat such as liposuction or abdominoplasty.

Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia surgery repairs a hernia of the abdominal wall. It usually occurs in the site of an old surgical incision. Laparoscopic repair results in a much less painful and shorter recovery. The results of the repair appear to be at least as good as repair with traditional surgery.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure in which the doctor removes your gallbladder with the aid of a laparoscope (small camera that can be inserted into the abdomen) and other surgical tools through four small incisions. This is the most common way to remove the gallbladder today, but you should always keep in mind that cholecystectomy cannot always be done laparoscopically and sometimes a larger incision is needed. This procedure is performed when you have stones or inflammation in your gallbladder, causing pain. There are no alternatives to surgically removing the gallbladder when it is causing pain.

Laparoscopic removal of a part of the colon for diverticulitis, colon cancer, rectal cancer, colorectal cancer, Crohn's Disease, Chronic Ulcerative Colitis, rectal prolapse, volvulus, sigmoid volvulus, cecal volvulus or constipation.

Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication is a minimally invasive procedure to correct gastroesophageal reflux disease. During the fundoplication surgery, the surgeon improves the natural barrier between the stomach and the esophagus by wrapping a part of the stomach known as the gastric fundus around the lower esophagus. This prevents the flow of acids from the stomach into the esophagus, and strengthens the valve between the esophagus and stomach, which stops acid from backing up into the esophagus as easily. This procedure is often done using a laparoscopic surgical technique. It can also be done as traditional (open) surgery.

Laparoscopic splenectomy is the surgical removal of the spleen. It differs from the traditional 'open' technique in that the procedure is performed through small incisions. This usually allows a much faster recovery and is significantly less painful

Parotidectomy is the removal of the parotid gland, a salivary gland near the ear. The parotid gland is the largest of the salivary glands. There are two parotid glands, one on each side of the face, just below and to the front of the ear. A duct through which saliva is secreted runs from each gland to the inside of the cheek. The main purpose of parotidectomy is to remove abnormal growths (neoplasms) that occur in the parotid gland. Parotid gland neoplasms may be benign (approximately 80%) or malignant. Tumors may spread from other areas of the body, entering the parotid gland by way of the lymphatic system.

Liver transplantation or hepatic transplantation is the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver allograft. The most commonly used technique is orthotopic transplantation, in which the native liver is removed and the donor organ is placed in the same anatomic location as the original liver. Liver transplantation nowadays is a well accepted treatment option for end-stage liver disease and acute liver failure.
