Adrenalectomy - An operation in which one or both adrenal glands are removed.
Appendectomy - The only treatment for appendicitis is surgery to remove the appendix (appendectomy). The goal is to remove the appendix before it ruptures and spreads infection to the abdomen (peritonitis).
Cholecystectomy (Gall Bladder) - Surgery to remove the gall bladder (cholecystectomy) is the treatment of choice for gallstones that cause moderate to severe pain or other symptoms.
Hernia Repair - A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia.
Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair - The intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. About 80% of all hernias are inguinal, and most occur in men because of a natural weakness in this area.
Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair - When a ventral hernia occurs, it usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical incision was made. In there area the abdominal muscles have weakened; this results in a bulge or a tear.
Splenectomy - A splenectomy is surgery to remove the entire spleen, a delicate, fist-sized organ that sits under the left rib cage near the stomach.
Colon Resection - A technique known as minimally invasive laparoscopic colon surgery allows surgeons to perform many common colon procedures through small incisions.
da Vinci (Robotic Surgery) - The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Nissen Fundoplication - During fundoplication surgery, the upper curve of the stomach (the fundus) is wrapped around the esophagus and sewn into place so that the lower portion of the esophagus passes through a small tunnel of stomach muscle. This surgery strengthens the valve between the esophagus and stomach, which stops acid from backing up into the esophagus as easily. This allows the esophagus to heal.
