Our experienced general surgeon provides a comprehensive range of general surgical services, covering everything from preventive screenings to essential diagnostic surgical procedures.
A procedure that uses a flexible tube with a camera to visually examine the inside of the body. Colonoscopy is used to inspect the large intestine for issues like polyps and cancer, while EGD examines the upper gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. These procedures help diagnose conditions such as gastrointestinal diseases, ulcers, and swallowing problems. They are minimally invasive and provide real-time insights for early disease detection and treatment guidance.
Laparoscopic hernia repair is a minimally invasive surgery for umbilical, ventral, and incisional hernias. It involves small incisions, the use of a laparoscope, and the insertion of mesh or sutures to reinforce the abdominal wall. This approach offers quicker recovery, less pain, and smaller scars compared to open surgery, making it a popular choice for hernia treatment. Most hernias can be repaired this way, make an appointment today to see if you are a good candidate for this type of procedure.
Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove the gallbladder. This surgery is commonly performed to treat gallstones, gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis), and other gallbladder-related conditions.
Gastroparesis is a condition where the stomach empties slowly, leading to symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Diagnosis involves medical history, physical exams, and tests. Treatment includes dietary adjustments, medications, and, in severe cases, procedures to improve stomach function, all tailored to the individual's needs for symptom relief and improved quality of life.
Thyroid surgery is performed to address thyroid nodules or cancer. It often starts with a biopsy to determine the nature of the nodules or tumors. Depending on the diagnosis and severity, surgery may involve removing part or all of the thyroid gland. We are excited to offer ultrasound guided thyroid biopsies in house.
Hemodialysis access is crucial for kidney failure patients. Two common methods are Hemodialysis Catheter (HD Cath) and Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF). HD Cath provides temporary access but has infection and clotting risks, while AVF is a long-term option with lower infection risk and better blood flow. Healthcare providers choose the method based on the patient's condition and treatment plan.
Breast cancer surgery offers two main options: lumpectomy and mastectomy.
The choice depends on factors like cancer stage, patient preference, and medical advice, with both options effectively treating breast cancer.
A bone marrow biopsy is a procedure to collect a small sample of bone marrow for diagnostic purposes. It helps identify blood-related conditions like cancer and leukemia by examining the bone marrow tissue under a microscope. This procedure assists in determining the cause of unexplained symptoms and guides treatment decisions.
Skin grafting is a surgical procedure where healthy skin is transplanted onto damaged or injured skin. It's used to promote healing, reduce pain, prevent infection, and improve scar appearance in conditions like burns, ulcers, and traumatic injuries. Skin grafting helps restore skin function and appearance, benefiting the patient's overall well-being.
In-clinic procedures include minor interventions like lipoma removal, abscess drainage, drain removal, and laceration sutures and removal of staples or stitches.
