Laparoscopic Surgery

Using minimally invasive techniques, our specially trained surgeons operate through multiple small incisions rather than a single larger one. The smaller incisions require tools specifically designed for minimally invasive surgeries, including cameras that allow the surgeon to see inside the body.

Excela Health offers minimally invasive options for many procedures such as hernia repair, breast procedures, gallbladder and appendix removal, colon and intestinal resection, tissue biopsies and cancer surgeries, hysterectomies and gynecological procedures. We also may use minimally invasive techniques for varicose veins and some back procedures.

Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS), using one incision as an entry point into the navel for surgery, has been utilized at Excela for particular procedures. The patient realizes just a very small, two centimeter scar inside the navel and less risk
