Minimally Invasive Surgery

Spring Ridge Surgical Specialists’ dedication to providing premier patient care includes endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgical procedures. Your surgeon will utilize the surgical type best suited for your individual needs.

Compared to open surgery, the benefits of minimally invasive surgery can include:

  • Less post-operative pain due to smaller incisions
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter recovery period
  • Faster return to work

Endoscopic Surgery

Endoscopic procedures diagnose upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract issues. During an endoscopy, a long, narrow and flexible tube containing a strong light and video camera is used so the tract can be viewed on a video screen, aiding in diagnosis.

Our physicians perform the following types of endoscopic surgery:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD)

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is typically used to treat issues of the abdomen. Small, keyhole incisions result in much less tissue trauma and post-operative pain.

Our physicians perform the following types of laparoscopic surgery:

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is used to treat many common intra-abdominal issues. Computer-assisted surgical precision creates small keyhole incisions minimizing tissue trauma and speed recovery time.

Our physicians perform the following type of robotic surgery:

  • Colon
  • Gallbladder
  • Hiatal Hernia
  • Anti-Reflux
