Laparoscopic Surgery in Shelbyville, IN
Minimally Invasive Surgery for Gall Bladder Removal
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm), as opposed to the larger incisions necessary in traditional surgery. In the past, laparoscopic surgery was used primarily for gynecological and gall bladder surgeries but has since expanded to encompass intestinal surgery, as well. This less-invasive approach results in less pain, less scarring, and a quicker recovery time for patients.
The surgeons at Advanced Surgical Associates in Indiana are specially trained in this minimally invasive procedure for a number of intestinal conditions, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, cancer, rectal prolapse, severe constipation, and more.
Common Laparoscopic Surgical Procedures:
- Gastric bypass

- Hernia repair
- Intestinal surgery
- Anti-reflux (GERD) surgery (Lap Nissen)
