COVID-19 Message

Dear Valued Patient,

Advanced Laparoscopic Associates has always been committed to putting your needs first and providing you with compassionate care. This challenging time is no different. We continue to monitor the situation closely to make necessary adjustments to ensure a safe environment for you.

Elective Surgeries

We have resumed elective surgeries as of May 26, per New Jersey state guidelines. If you had a surgery scheduled that was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will contact you to confirm a new appointment date and time. If you are interested in bariatric surgery or have another issue that may require general surgery and you previously delayed making an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Prior to your surgery appointment, patients will be tested for COVID-19. Patients must self-quarantine until the surgery appointment date to avoid contracting the virus. On the day of the procedure, patients will be screened for symptoms again. Any patient who tests positive or shows symptoms of COVID-19 will have the surgery rescheduled. 

Your Health and Safety Remain Our Highest Priority 

In order to continue to provide a safe environment for you to receive our care, the following precautions we implemented to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 remain in place:

  • Telemedicine appointments to provide care in the safety and comfort of your own home, eliminating all risk of disease transmission.
  • All staff and patients are required to wear a mask or cloth face covering while in any of our offices.
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting our offices.
  • Requiring staff and patients who are experiencing a fever or any viral symptoms to stay home and consult with a primary care physician.
