"LAPAROSCOPY"

and
LAPAROSCOPIC GALLBLADDER SURGERY and ENDOSCOPY

The Surgeons of THE NORTH PENN SURGICAL ASSOCIATES an affiliate of The North Penn Hernia Institute, have developed, achieved and maintained both contemporary knowledge and technical skill in the new and ever advancing field of mini-invasive LAPAROSCOPIC and ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY

These superior "mini-invasive" procedures are significantly better tolerated by the patient, with much less post-operative discomfort and complications, a much more rapid and smoother recovery, and fewer restrictions.

Numerous Laparoscopic procedures are available
INCLUDING:

  • LAPAROSCOPIC GALLBLADDER SURGERY
  • LAPAROSCOPIC HIATAL HERNIA REPAIR
  • DIAGNOSTIC LAPAROSCOPY
  • LAPAROSCOPIC LIVER BIOPSY
  • LAPAROSCOPIC LYMPH NODE and TISSUE BIOPSY
  • LAPAROSCOPIC ADHESION REMOVAL for PAIN
  • LAPAROSCOPIC APPENDECTOMY
  • ENDOSCOPIC CHEST/LUNG SURGERY or "THORACOSCOPY"
  • LAPAROSCOPIC DRAINAGE of ABSCESSES
  • INTESTINAL ENDOSCOPY (Upper Endoscopy, and Colonoscopy)
  • LAPAROSCOPIC HERNIA REPAIR**
We rarely recommend Laparoscopic Hernia repair, feeling the advanced open methods are far safer (fewer complications), and more effective(lower recurrence of the hernia)!!!
**Only When Appropriate. We firmly believe that in most cases, a mini-incision, open TENSION FREE approach to hernia repair is far superior. We have abandoned Laparoscopy for most hernia repairs in strong favor of an open technique.

Our Surgeons and staff provide many of these surgical services on an out-patient, same-day basis at:
