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.


A tumor is defined as a swelling or morbid enlargement. Although often used as a synonym for neoplasm, the word tumor is not synonymous with cancer; tumors may be benign (non-­cancerous), pre-­malignant or malignant (cancerous), or can signify a lesion with no cancerous potential. A tumor results from an overabundance of cell growth and division; normally cells grow and divide to produce new cells in a controlled and orderly manner. In malignant tumors (that is, cancerous tumors), cells are abnormal and divide uncontrollably and without order. Often these cells spread to and damage nearby tissue and may spread to other parts of the body (metastases). Tumors vary in type and size, and the type of tissue they occur in often signifies their shape and how they grow.
