We offer a variety of surgical treatment options for health issues. It is important to note that we will examine the patient’s health history and current condition in order to determine if surgery is the best option for treatment. It is understandable for patients to have fears about surgery and what can happen during the recovery. Fortunately, at General & Laparoscopic Surgeons of New York LLP, we have a team of specialist surgeons who can effectively treat a variety of health issues.
While any surgery can be complex, we specialize in general, laparoscopic, minimally invasive, colon, stomach, spleen, gallbladder, liver surgery and more. Between the skills, knowledge and experience of our surgeons, we can offer professional and specialized treatment in these surgical procedures that other medical practices cannot. Thus, we recommend that people seek our practice to treat these issues since we understand what we are treating and are familiar with the specific procedure.
Also known as minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgery involves performing the surgery through small incisions in the body usually no more than 1.5 cm in length. The reason this method is preferable to traditional surgery is the smaller surgical scar and the fact that many patients can return home the same day after the procedure.
However, if one does not seek a professional who specializes in laparoscopic surgery, then there is a high risk. Fortunately, our team specializes in laparoscopic treatment for a variety of health conditions. We will examine the patient and determine if laparoscopic surgery is the best option before moving forward.
One of the main reasons that we will need to remove the colon through surgery is due to colon cancer. By removing the cancer, we can attempt to prevent the cancer from spreading further and in some cases effectively eradicating it from the body.
However, since cancer can easily spread to other parts of the body, there will be other forms of treatment following the surgery to continue the treatment. Colon surgery requires expertise and we can provide the necessary expertise to perform this surgery without a hitch. Following the surgery, the patient will most likely be referred to a specialist to continue treatment.
Surgery on the stomach is done for a variety of reasons. The most common types of surgery General and Laparoscopic Surgeons of New York perform on patients is for masses found in the stomach. Sometimes these are benign processes, and sometimes they are malignant. Surgery to eradicate cancers and ulcer disease, although less common these days, is still done in the correct setting. Often, procedures can be done laparoscopically using Minimally Invasive techniques. In specific cases, Robotic Surgery can be employed.
The adrenal glands are above the kidneys and produce hormones that regulate metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, blood sugar and other bodily functions. When a tumor begins to grow on the adrenal gland, even if it is noncancerous, surgery to remove the gland will most likely be the best option.
We have an adrenalectomy surgeon who specializes in this procedure and can complete it with less risk. Fortunately, the body can function with only one adrenal gland without the need for medications or other procedures.
Connecting to the bile duct in the body, the gallbladder will store bile that the liver produces. However, if the gallbladder does not work properly, it will cause stones or sludge to form. We may need to remove the gallbladder through a laparoscopic procedure. We will most likely move forward with a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
During the laparoscopic cholecystectomy, we will place a camera scope on a tube and other instruments to remove the gallbladder. Before we remove the gallbladder, we will be sure to empty all of the bile out to avoid causing the body any other harm.
While the average person may assume that a liver is a fairly simple organ of the body, it is actually a complex system of ducts in the body that require specialist foreknowledge to effectively treat. Our team of specialists has the knowledge and expertise to perform liver surgery for any number of reasons.
We may need to remove the tumor or even a portion of the liver. We can do this procedure correctly so that the liver continues to function without issue. The patient will not remember or feel a thing during the procedure and will be under anesthetic. In some cases, removing metastatic tumors from the liver can aid in extending one’s life.
Spleen Removal Surgery
A spleen removal surgery will be the best treatment option for a ruptured or enlarged spleen, while also being necessary to remove tumors from the spleen. However, since an enlarged spleen can easily rupture, the surgery needs professionals at the ready. While removing the spleen, the surgeon must also be careful to watch the pancreas as the pancreas relies on the spleen.
We can ensure that a spleen removal surgery goes without a hitch. A patient who has an enlarged spleen will experience pain and a constant feeling of fullness without eating. An enlarged spleen can rupture and lead to internal bleeding without the proper treatment. Thus, seeking our surgical treatment options is crucial to wellbeing.
