Procedures we routinely perform include:
- Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
- Colectomy (partial colon removal for cancer or diverticulitis)
- Appendectomy (appendix removal)

Our team was the first group in the area to offer single incision gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) using the daVinci® robot. Benefits of this procedure include: Less pain, faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, quicker return to normal activity, less scaring, and sometimes no scarring at all.
Our surgeons perform almost all hernia surgery laparoscopically and utilize the daVinci® robot whenever possible. Depending on the location of the hernia, the repair will be performed using sterile plastic mesh, which helps to reduce hernia recurrence.
Types of hernias we repair:
- Inguinal hernias
- Ventral and Incisional hernias
- Femoral hernias
- Obturator hernias
- Hiatal hernias
Melanoma & Skin Cancer Surgery
Skin lesions can include warts, moles, cysts or suspicious masses. Removal is indicated in circumstances where the lesion is causing pain, has had suspicious changes over time, is restricting movement or is unsightly. Usually removal can be performed in the office or in an outpatient surgery center where you will go home the same day. The specimen excised will undergo pathologic review and further treatment will be determined post-operatively.
In cases of skin cancer (melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, etc.), surgery is the most common form of treatment. Doctors at Memorial Advanced Surgery are trained to excise these cancers and perform lymph node dissections when indicated. We work closely with a multidisciplinary team to develop individual treatment plans for optimal patient outcomes.
