At Dignity Health hospitals, our team of skilled surgeons specializes in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques, including da Vinci robotic surgery and advanced laparoscopic procedures. These procedures include:

  • adrenalectomy: the removal of one or both of the adrenal glands
  • colectomy: the removal of all or part of the colon
  • hernia repair: corrects the defect in the abdominal wall so the intestines do not bulge through
  • nissen fundoplication (gastroesophageal reflux surgery): tightens the muscles where the esophagus and the stomach meet to correct acid reflux
  • splenectomy: the removal of all or part of the spleen

Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery

Traditional open surgery involves making a large incision to treat a disease or condition. Recovery time is usually lengthy, and, as with any surgery, complications may arise, including infection that can stem from the large incision or internal bleeding.

Dignity Health specialists perform minimally invasive surgery through small incisions, using specialized instruments and techniques to repair and treat many of the same diseases and conditions as open surgery. These procedures offer patients a host of potential benefits, such as:

  • faster recovery
  • less blood loss, pain, and scarring
  • less risk of infection and post-operative complications
  • shorter hospital stay

Common Conditions We Treat

Dignity Health surgeons treat a variety of diseases and conditions through laparoscopic surgery, including abdominal and gynecologic disorders as well as gynecologic cancers. We treat:

  • gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

  • pancreatic cysts
