Surgical Endoscopy Overview
The surgeons at University Surgeons Associates perform surgical procedures through endoscopic and combined laparoendoscopic techniques. This includes removal of tumors, foreign bodies and stones as well as treating sites of bleeding, obstruction and infection. These types of procedures can be the definitive treatment for some patients and therefore avoid a more invasive procedure. For others these procedures may be diagnostic or used in preparation for a later procedure. There are some situations where the patient may be so ill that such surgical interventions may be palliative or used to allow the patient to stabilize or gain strength before undergoing more invasive surgery. University Surgeons Associates are committed to developing and implementing the latest techniques and technologies as they become proven and available.
