Minimally invasive “laparoscopic” techniques.
Laparoscopic General Surgery
The philosophy of our surgeons is that virtually all abdominal surgical procedures can be performed using minimally invasive or “laparoscopic” techniques. Laparoscopic surgeries use comparatively small incisions, small tools and a flexible camera called a laparoscope attached to a video monitor. The laparoscope allows surgeons to see into the area upon which their operating without needing a large incision.
Open surgeries require a comparatively large incision so the surgeon can see the area directly. Compared to open surgery, laparoscopic surgery generally offers the following advantages:
- Less pain
- Lower rate of complication
- Shorter hospital stay
- Shorter recovery time
For a list of laparoscopic operations performed by our surgeons in Paramus, New Jersey, see below:
For additional information, all prospective patients are invited to attend a free educational seminar.
Seminars are a great source of information about the procedure you are considering, and they allow you to meet the surgeons as well as ask any questions you may have. You may also have the opportunity to meet some post-operative patients.
