Minimally invasive surgery has become the standard treatment for many surgical conditions. It is often considered a better option than traditional, or open, surgery, which involves a longer incision. At Austin Surgeons, our board-certified general surgeons are experts in minimally invasive surgery, offering laparoscopic surgical techniques.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery allows patients faster recovery, less pain and scarring than traditional open procedures. Patients can also expect a shorter hospital stay, reduced blood loss and less risk for infection.
Minimally Invasive Surgery Techniques
We perform minimally invasive surgery through two techniques:
- Laparoscopy – Laparoscopy, or laparoscopic surgery, is performed on organs and structures of the abdominal cavity through small incisions. A camera, or scope, is inserted through one of these small incisions while slim instruments are placed through other small incisions to carry out the surgical procedure.
Our board-certified general surgeons evaluate each patients’ individual needs to determine if minimally invasive surgery is appropriate. There may be situations where laparoscopy surgery cannot be performed, and the surgery must be done with the traditional open technique.
We provide comprehensive surgical care for many conditions at KLASS including hernias, gallbladder disease, gastrointestinal conditions, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), hiatal hernias, endocrine disorders (thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal disorders, and soft tissue masses.
