Since the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the late 1980s, laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the course of modern surgery. As the applications of this burgeoning technology continue to expand, minimally invasive surgery has become a safe, attractive alternative to traditional open surgery.
While laparoscopy may be easier for patients than traditional surgery, where the abdomen is cut open, it may be very difficult for the inexperienced surgeon. It requires tremendous commitment and extensive training for surgeons who perform these procedures.
San Jacinto Methodist Hospital offers the expertise of surgeons who have years of specialized training and experience in minimally invasive procedures. Our laparoscopic services include therapeutic and diagnostic procedures.
If you have questions or wish to consult with one of our laparoscopic specialists, please call us at 281-420-8459.
All patients referred to San Jacinto Methodist Hospital for laparoscopic surgery will receive surgical follow-up while continuing under the care of their primary physician. Our staff works closely with referring physicians and insurance plans to ensure continuity of quality care, sharing all treatment plans, and follow-up reports with the referring physician on an ongoing basis.
