Triangle
Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

This minimally invasive technique uses a thin, lighted tube with a camera called a laparoscope. Placed through small incisions, the surgeon uses the laparoscope to perform many different procedures, such as gallbladder removal, hernia repair, or abdominal surgery.

Areas of expertise include mastectomy, lumpectomy, surgical biopsy, and lymph node dissection.

Gallbladder Removal

Gallbladder Removal

Your gallbladder is the organ located on the upper right side of your abdomen, just behind your liver. Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder wall, which is usually caused by a gallstone. A cholecystectomy is the procedure to remove your gallbladder. The procedure requires laparoscopic surgery, meaning you will have 4 small incisions in which special surgical tools and a camera are inserted. By using a minimally invasive technique, you will recover faster and easier.

Hernia Repair

Hernia Repair

A hernia occurs when the inner layers of the abdominal wall become weakened, causing tissue to protrude through the abdomen. Hernia repair requires surgery, either by hand (open surgery) or a minimally invasive technique using the da Vinci Surgical System. Our surgeons have earned the Surgical Review Corporation Center of Excellence Hernia Surgery (COEHS). DHR Health is the only accredited COEHS center in the State of Texas.

Hidden Scar Breast Surgery

Hidden Scar Breast Surgery

Breast cancer can be surgically removed with a mastectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove all of your breast tissue) or a lumpectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove only part of your breast tissue). With a Hidden Scar approach, your surgeon will place your incision in a location that is hard to see, so that the scar is not visible when your incision heals. As a result, you have little to no visible reminder of the surgery or your cancer.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Our surgeons use the da Vinci Si Surgical System to perform minimally invasive surgery. This system allows our surgeons to operate with even more precision, efficiency, and control, which means you can recover and get back to your life faster.
