Laparoscopic Surgery at UHD

Some surgeries that formerly required a large incision now can be done using a series of small cuts. Surgeons insert a thin tube with a camera (a laparoscope) into the body to help them see; small tools are then used to perform the surgery. This type of surgery is called laparoscopic surgery. For patients, this means a quicker recovery and less scarring. At UHD, we perform several procedures laparoscopically.

Surgical Procedures at UHD include

  • Colonoscopy
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD)
  • Hemorrhoidectomy
  • Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
  • Laparoscopic Appendectomy
  • Laparoscopic assisted Colectomy
  • Laparoscopic Hernia repair
  • Open hernia repair
  • Port catheter placement
  • Biopsy/Lumpectomy breast surgery
  • Mastectomy

The surgical department is continually updating technology for its inpatient and outpatient procedures. Surgeries are scheduled through each individual surgeon’s office.
