Surgical Solutions

Many of the listed surgical procedures can be performed with very small incisions. We specialize in the use of laparoscopic surgery techniques including the 3mm mini laparoscope for many of the surgeries that we perform.

This affords our patients a faster recovery, decreased pain and earlier return to normal activity. Please inquire regarding whether your particular surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques.


An intussusception is a medical condition in which a part of the intestine has invaginated into another section of intestine, similar to the way in which the parts of a collapsible telescope slide into one another. Intussusception This can often result in an obstruction. The part that prolapses into the other is called the intussusceptum, and the part that receives it is called the intussuscipiens.

What causes intussusception? The exact cause of most cases of intussusception in children is not known. Intussusception It may happen after your child has infections of the nose, throat or bowel that are caused by a virus. Sometimes, an overgrowth of tissues in the intestines may become the place where the intussusception starts. These overgrowths may include a Meckel diverticulum, lymphoma, or an intestinal polyp. Diseases, such as Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) and cystic fibrosis, may affect the bowel wall and increase risk of intussusception. Intussusception may also occur after your child has abdominal (belly) surgery
