At Sky Lakes General Surgery Clinic, we accept all patients and all insurances. There is no significant wait time and referrals can usually be seen early, as to give prompt patient care.
I am currently providing a full breadth of complex, and basic, laparoscopic surgeries including:
- anti-reflux surgery
- gastrectomy (cancer and benign disorders)
- colorectal resections (cancer and benign disorders)
- paraesophageal/diaphragmatic hernia repair
- abdominal hernia repair
- inguinal hernia repair (standard/SILS)
- distal pancreatectomy
- gallbladder removal (standard/SILS)
- diagnostic laparoscopy
- lysis of adhesions
- feeding tube placement
Additionally, I provide surgery for malignant and benign diseases of the thyroid, parathyroids, and breast, among other endocrine disorders (i.e. adrenal), and in office thyroid and breast biopsies. I also perform tracheostomy tube placement both open and percutaneous.
I am readily available to perform screening colonoscopies, and both diagnostic and therapeutic upper and lower endoscopies (i.e. Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy).
A limited array of vascular/endovascular surgery is also offered (IVC filters, carotid endarterectomy, peripheral bypass, abdominal aneurysm repair, and peripheral stenting), including infusion catheter placement.
