Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
One of the most common procedures we perform is laparoscopic inguinal and incisional hernia repair. A hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall that allows contents from inside your abdominal cavity such as intestine, to slip out and protrude through the opening.

Heartburn / Acid Reflux Surgery
Approximately 14 million Americans experience symptoms of GERD, including heartburn and esophageal inflammation, on a daily basis. Most manage their disease with medications such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Since pharmacological therapy does not treat the underlying causes of reflux the deterioration of the antireflux barrier, life-long medication therapy is required. Surgery is highly effective and can be performed laparoscopically.
Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery
Traditional thyroidectomy accesses the thyroid gland through a 4-6 inch horizontal incision in the neck. The majority of thyroid tumors removed are non-cancerous; however, for what turned out to be benign, most people are left with a permanent incision in their neck.
Endoscopic thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the thyroid gland with a high level of safety and without a permanent scar left in the neck area. Learn more about Endoscopic Thyroidectomy.
