Comprehensive Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

Some of the safest, most effective techniques in surgery.

The amazing laparoscope has proven itself extremely useful for treating many surgical problems. Why? There’s less scarring and less chance of infection. High-definition technology and visualization add greater precision. Recovery often happens in days or weeks instead of months. And postsurgical pain is dramatically reduced. That’s why laparoscopy is the procedure of choice for NORCAL Advanced Laparoscopy’s fellowship-trained specialists.

The practice started in 1992. With multiple fellowships in laparoscopic and bariatric surgery to their credit (including one of the first in the country), the doctors have built the most advanced laparoscopy center in the region by maintaining some of the lowest complication rates in the country.

The physicians are renowned for their skill and success with complex surgical challenges. Among the many things they can do or treat laparoscopically are:

  • Tumor resections (among the first centers in the world to do this!), including stromal tumors
  • Benign & malignant tumors of the bowel & intestines
  • Inguinal & femoral hernias
  • Complex hiatal hernia
  • Barrett’s esophagus & GERD/fundoplication
  • Swallowing disorders, including achalasia
  • Liver & gallbladder problems
  • Adrenal & spleen disorders
  • Weight loss surgery

Unlike conventional surgery, which may require a foot-long incision, laparoscopic procedures allow our physicians to operate through openings the size of small buttonholes and view the procedure on a computerized high-definition TV monitor.

In the right hands, laparoscopy is a very safe procedure. NORCAL Advanced Laparoscopy has maintained outcome data on all their patients since 2001. Their results are consistently among the best in California and in the United States. The physicians at NORCAL Advanced Laparoscopy are highly skilled, advanced laparoscopic surgeons – the most experienced in the Northern Valley.
