Though they specialize in general surgery, the physicians at Spring Hospital take a hands-on approach to your care. You can count on individualized attention beginning at your initial consultation and lasting throughout your post-operative care.
Considering general surgeons treat multiple body areas, you won’t be surprised to learn that they offer a long list of procedures. The surgeons at Spring Hospital frequently perform:
The general surgeons also treat some blood vessel problems, including performing peripheral vascular procedures and repairing abdominal aortic aneurysms.
The physicians at Spring Hospital routinely use minimally invasive surgery for their general surgery procedures. Minimally invasive surgery causes less trauma because it uses a small incision and narrow surgical instruments.
Laparoscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is named after an instrument called a laparoscope, which is a long, narrow tube used for surgery in the abdominal and pelvic regions.
The scope holds lighting and a high-definition video camera that transmits a magnified view from inside your body to a monitor. Your physician uses laparoscopic surgery to examine tissues and diagnose problems.
Then they can repair the problem by sending tools through the laparoscope or by creating another small incision for the instruments.
Spring Hospital features today’s most advanced robotic-assisted surgery using the da Vinci surgical system. When using the da Vinci, your physician sits at the surgeon’s console, where they control and perform your surgery.
The surgeon wears sensitive controls on their fingers, watches the video from inside your body, and moves their fingers as though they’re holding the instrument.
The controls translate their finger and hand actions into movements performed by the robotic arms. The robotic arms are smaller than a human hand. The robot also has fine movement and a range of motion that exceeds human abilities.
As a result, the robotic system produces more accurate results in small areas and can repair even the most delicate tissues.
