Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery
Over the years advanced robotic systems have transformed the way doctors perform a wide range of surgeries, providing them with more control and precision. Here at Surgical Associates of Mansfield we proudly offer minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to treat numerous conditions, including:
- GI Conditions
- Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
- Gallbladder Disease
- Reflux Disease
- Rectal Prolapse
This is just a brief overview of some of the conditions we are able to treat using laparoscopic surgery. It is our goal to provide patients with the care and attention they need. If surgery is necessary, we believe in providing people with the least invasive option possible. Laparoscopic surgery is a highly specialized technique that our surgeons have worked hard to master. In the last 10 years this type of surgery has become widely recognized as the go-to and has expanded into intestinal surgery.
Contrary to traditional open surgery, laparoscopic uses several .5-1cm incisions, otherwise referred to as ports. At each port a trochar is inserted, which is a tubular instrument designed to get into the area of concern. Once this tube is inserted a special camera - known as a laparoscope - is passed through the trochars, giving our surgeons complete control and precision. The laparoscope then transmits what it is seeing to high-resolution video monitors. As you can imagine, this is an extremely effective technique for treating common conditions that gives our surgeons complete control.
