General Surgery Information and Risks
General surgery is an expansive field that covers many different types of procedures, including the removal of cancerous tumors, removal of benign growths, gallbladder removal, hernia repairs, and more. Some of the risks of general surgery include bad reactions to anesthesia, bleeding, postsurgical infections, wound infections, and blood clots. Specific types of procedures may carry additional risks for patients. Your surgeon will explain the risks associated with a procedure in advance.
What is minimally-invasive surgery?
Minimally-invasive surgical procedures use smaller incisions than traditional open procedures. This reduces the size of the scar, the trauma to the patient’s body, and the risk of complications. Minimally-invasive surgeries also require shorter hospital stays, and they tend to cost less than traditional surgeries.
Robotic General Surgery
Robotic surgery is a method of surgery that utilizes a computerized system to perform surgical procedures. This system usually consists of mechanical arms that control surgical instruments, as well as a camera arm the surgeon can use to view the treatment area. The surgeon controls these arms using a computer. This method improves precision considerably.
In many cases, we will use robotic surgery in combination with minimally-invasive surgical techniques. By using these two techniques together, we can minimize the trauma to the patient and ensure the best outcome.
Dr. Long Nguyen saved my life. The surgery was very complicated and he is my hero. The second surgery was excellent. I recommend North Texas Surgical Specialists to all of my friends and family.
The staff was very kind and helpful. Dr. Halbouni was very patient-oriented and took the time to explain everything with drawings and answered all of my questions in ways I could understand.
I love Dr. Jay Patel. He has a very good bedside manner, very professional & nice. I absolutely would recommend him to everyone. I love him & I thank him for everything & giving me my life back. I will forever be in his debt. He is so awesome! Thank you!
Dr Jay Patel performed two surgeries on me the first surgery was a fundoplication and a second surgery was a hiatal hernia repair. I am able to actually drink water now and not get heartburn and not have it come up through my nose. You listened to what I had to say about what my problem was and able to fix with no other doctor would do they just kept overlooking everything so once again I want to tell you thank you so very much this is a big change in my life after going through this for so many years.
