Laparoscopic Surgical Clinic

Laparoscopic Surgical Clinic

Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized surgical care with minimally invasive incisions, minimal manipulation of the abdominal contents and minimal adhesions, resulting in quicker recovery time and return to work.

Industry partners have recognized the UVA Laparoscopic Surgery team as a Center of Excellence in surgical technique and care. Recently awarded a $750,000 grant, the team will be researching new techniques and streamlining surgical operations.

Our results-oriented surgical team has a wide range of expertise in the entire field of laparoscopy, offering new options not only in basic procedures but in complex operations like nephrectomy and liver resection. Our experienced surgeons routinely perform gastrointestinal-tract operations ranging from colon resection to gastric bypass for severe obesity. As technology improves, we are at the forefront of providing the latest surgical technical advances. For example, with the advent of radio-frequency interstitial thermal ablation (RITA) we have an additional technique for treating hepatic metastases. Our team has specialty expertise in several areas:

  • Biliary Hepatic
  • Bowel and Colon Resection
  • Pancreatic Resection
  • Bariatric (Weight Reduction)
