At General Surgery Associates, our surgeons specialize in performing gastric procedures that help with both symptomatology as well as anatomical abnormalities. One of the most common gastric procedures our surgeons specialize in is a hiatal hernia repair. A hiatal hernia typically presents symptoms of nausea, vomiting, acid reflux and difficulty swallowing and is diagnosed on imaging or upper endoscopy.
At General Surgery Associates, this procedure is performed utilizing a minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic approach. Another procedure performed by our surgeons is a gastrectomy. This is more commonly performed due to structural or anatomical abnormalities such as an ulcer or a tumor. Other procedures of the stomach performed by our practice include:
- Bypass surgery
- Gastrostomy tube insertion
