Laparoscopic Surgery - Murrieta Valley Surgical Associates
At Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates, our goal is to provide patients with a comfortable, positive surgical experience before, during, and following their procedure. Through laparoscopic surgery, our specialists are able to perform complex surgeries in a minimally invasive manner, leading to shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time.
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical procedure in which a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through small incisions. Using this thin telescopic camera, our specialists gain full insight without having to make large incisions to determine cause of medical problems.
While the procedure is used for diagnostic biopsies, our surgical specialists also utilize this technique to provide patients with a less invasive alternative to traditional open surgery. At Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates, laparoscopic procedures can be used for:
- Antireflux Surgery (Nissen fundoplication)
- Paraesophageal Hernia Repair
- Pancreatic Surgery
- Hernia Repair
- Colon Resection
- Peritoneal dialysis catheter placement
Laparoscopic surgery can also be used in conjunction with other surgical procedures offered by our multi-specialty practice. In particular, bariatric procedures are often conducted using a laparoscope. Not only does this technique ensure precise treatment, but it also helps patients enjoy greater comfort during post-operative recovery.
The Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
The prospect of undergoing major surgery can be overwhelming for many patients. Laparoscopic surgery helps alleviate these concerns by providing an option that maximizes comfort.
By creating smaller incisions to conduct surgery, laparoscopic surgery patients can expect treatments with a faster recovery time and minimal post-operative scarring. Smaller incisions also lead to minimal discomfort, with most patients able to return home from the hospital in just a few days. While our surgeons do recommend that patients take it easy following their surgical procedure, most enjoy an earlier return to normal activities than those who opt for traditional open surgery.
