Some of our surgeons treat more specialized conditions, and some have training in emerging surgical techniques.

Laser Hemorrhoids surgery is a relatively new procedure for hemorrhoid treatment in which the hemorrhoidal blood flow is coagulated by the laser. Prior to procedure, patients need to be anesthetized by the anesthesiologist. Subsequently, the procedure will be conducted by the colorectal surgeon, the laser probe will be inserted into the hemorrhoids. Due to an intense amount of heat, the laser beam cauterizes and seals off the blood vessels, therefore the hemorrhoid will simply shrink while reducing the risk of excessive bleeding during and after the procedure. Since laser Hemorrhoids surgery is a precise procedure, it leaves no effect to the surrounding tissues as well as the anal sphincters.
Before the hemorrhoidectomy, the doctor will consider using anesthetic or local anesthetic injection into the spine’s bone marrow (Epidural) in order to reduce the pain sensation and awareness during the procedure. The patient who undergoes the hemorrhoidectomy will feel no pain during the surgery but after the surgery, the patient needs to stay in the hospital for around 5 -7 days. Thus, if you want to undergo the traditional hemorrhoidectomy, you may need to make your treatment plan in advance. Moreover, the patient who has underwent the traditional hemorrhoidectomy will have a surgical incision scar on the anus.
Although most anal fissures do not require surgery, chronic fissures are harder to treat and surgery may be the best option. The goal of surgery is to help the anal sphincter muscles relax which reduces pain and spasms, allowing the fissure to heal. Surgical options include Botulinum toxin injection into the anal sphincter or surgical division of an inner part of the anal sphincter (lateral internal sphincterotomy). Your colon and rectal surgeon will find the best treatment for you and discuss the risks of surgery. Both types of surgery are typically done as same-day outpatient procedures.
A hernia is usually treated with surgery. The three main types of hernia surgery are open repair, laparoscopic (minimally invasive) repair, and robotic repair.
A colectomy is an operation to remove part or all of your colon. It’s also called colon resection surgery. You may need a colectomy if part or all of your colon has stopped working, or if it has an incurable condition that endangers other parts. Common reasons include colon cancer and inflammatory bowel diseases.
Bariatric surgery procedures include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric band and duodenal switch. These operations have proven results in treating class III obesity. They also help normalize your metabolism, including blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a type of weight-loss surgery. Weight-loss surgery is also called bariatric surgery. This surgery also known as sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). Gastric sleeve surgery restricts your food intake, which leads to weight loss. You may lose from 50 to 90 pounds.
It’s done as a laparoscopic surgery, with small incisions in the upper abdomen. Most of the left part of the stomach is removed. The remaining stomach is then a narrow tube called a sleeve. Food empties out of the bottom of the stomach into the small intestine the same way that it did before surgery. The small intestine is not operated on or changed. After the surgery, less food will make you full when eating.
Gastric sleeve surgery is used to treat severe obesity. It’s advised for people who have tried other weight loss methods without long-term success. Your doctor may advise gastric sleeve surgery if you are obese with a body mass index (BMI) over 35 or 30 with health conditions. Your doctor may also advise it if you have a health condition such as sleep apnea, high blood pressure, heart disease, or type 2 diabetes.
Smart Capsule, similar to a pill but filled with water, is the latest method of losing weight and obesity. After being inflated inside the stomach, the capsule treatment is tied with a thin tube. After filling with the liquid, the smart capsule is swallowed as any other treatment capsule. Doctors removed the thin tube from patients during the procedure, and the capsule became swollen. The smart capsule procedure is the first and only authorized in the world, working on a loss of 15 to 20 kilograms of excess weight above the ideal weight. That’s only four months; this procedure is performed during your visit to the clinic doctor, without surgery, anesthesia, or pain.
The doctor will determine the BMI factor, and this is to know the percentage of excess weight. Your doctor offers you an innovative capsule.
- All you have to do is swallow the capsule and drink 1 ounce of water. This smart capsule is connected to a skinny tube.
- This tube is used to inflate the Smart capsule procedure into the stomach after stabilizing the stomach. The capsule is inflated when it occupies a large stomach area and is filled with a custom sterile liquid.
- After the smart capsule or programmed capsule is inflated, the tube is automatically separated from the capsule. And then, the doctor pulls the tube through the oral cavity. The capsule is fitted without surgery and pain.
