Conditions Treated

  • Gallbladder Disease;¬†such as gallstones, gallbladder polyps, and gallbladder dysfunction. Symptoms usually are nausea and right upper abdominal pain after eating, especially greasy or spicy foods. An ultrasound will be able to detect the presence of gallstones.
  • Inguinal Hernia; this condition presents as a bulge in the groin area, and can be unilateral or on both sides. A defect occurs in the fascia, which is the strong connective tissue layer. A hernia sac, which contains abdominal contents such as intra-abdominal fat or bowel, can then protrude through the defect causing discomfort or pain.
  • Ventral Hernia; this condition presents as a single bulge or multiple bulges in the middle of the abdomen. A defect occurs in the fascia, which is the strong connective tissue layer. A hernia sac, which contains abdominal contents such as intra-abdominal fat or bowel, can then protrude through the defect causing discomfort or pain. This condition usually occurs after a prior operation, but can sometimes occur primarily as well.
  • Umbilical Hernia; this condition presents as a bulge at the belly button.A defect occurs in the fascia, which is the strong connective tissue layer. A hernia sac, which contains abdominal contents such as intra-abdominal fat or bowel, can then protrude through the defect causing discomfort or pain. This causes the outpouching at the umbilicus.
  • Hiatal Hernia; essentially a portion of the stomach has migrated up in the chest through the diaphragm muscle. This can lead to heartburn and sometimes even chest pain.
  • GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: This is a digestive disorder that affects the stomach and lower esophagus, causing the return of stomach contents including acid to come back up into the esophagus. This is usually treated with medication, however when conservative therapy fails, a wrap of the stomach around itself may be indicated to help control the reflux and prevent acid from moving up the esophagus.
