Most people can manage the discomfort of GERD with lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications. But some people with GERD may need stronger medications or surgery to ease symptoms. Surgeries performed by Surgical Associates include:
- Laparoscopic repair of hiatal hernia
Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal
Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is the best method of treating gallstones that cause symptoms, unless there is a reason that the surgery should not be done.
Laparoscopic surgery is used most commonly when no factors are present that may complicate the surgery.
Lymph Node Biopsies
A lymph node biopsy is a test that checks for disease in your lymph nodes. This test will help your doctor look for signs of a chronic infection, an immune disorder, or cancer.
Vascular Surgery (Dialysis Access)
A surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.
Treatment of varicose veins and spider veins is not just for cosmetic reasons. Varicose vein disease can cause many health problems, such as blood clots, venous eczema, skin breakdown and ulceration, and, rarely, skin cancers.
A vasectomy is a form of birth control. It prevents sperm from being released during ejaculation. A vasectomy is one of the most effective methods of birth control. According to the American Urological Association, pregnancy will occur in fewer than 2 out of every 1,000 couples in which the man has had a vasectomy.
