Our surgeons have specialized in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedures since 1991 when the technology was first available. Since then, many new procedures and techniques have been incorporated into our daily practice.
Often, our expertise in laparoscopic surgery allows our patients to have procedures performed on an outpatient basis when the alternative could mean several days in the hospital followed by weeks of recovery at home. Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include less pain, a faster recovery, and better cosmetic results.
Even in the most experienced hands, not all procedures are possible or safe to perform laparoscopically. Our vast laparoscopic experience will help us determine the best treatment for any given surgical problem.
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Rex Surgical Specialists continues to lead our community in minimally invasive surgery with the introduction of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) and Hidden Scar Laparoscopy/Micro Laparoscopy (Micro). These advances provide you safe and effective laparoscopic surgery through smaller and often hidden incisions with the added benefits of improved cosmesis, fewer or no visible scars, and reduced post-operative pain.
Our minimally invasive surgeons offer SILS and Micro options for the following operations: gallbladder surgery, colon resection, gastric surgery, small bowel resection, appendectomy, and splenectomy.
