General and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery
We are proud to have as a member of our team the first surgeon in Austin to perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery to remove the gallbladder, which is done through one small (less than an inch) incision. All of our surgeons have had extensive training in the very latest and highly specialized laparoscopic techniques to address problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (heartburn), removal of the gallbladder or colon and hernia repair. In addition to having less pain, you can expect smaller scars, less time in the hospital and a faster return to normal activities.

Our surgeons offer a variety of surgical treatments for thyroid and parathyroid conditions, as well as congenital and malignant diseases of the head and neck.
A hernia results when the abdominal wall is weakened, allowing the abdominal contents to protrude beyond the normal boundaries. Our surgeons can repair a variety of hernias, including groin hernias, incisional hernias and other abdominal wall hernias.
