Dr. A. Enrique Whittwell and his experienced surgical staff in Miami, Florida are pleased to offer patients the most advanced surgical techniques, including laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgery that uses small incisions rather than the single large incision used during traditional open surgery.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
The benefits of laparoscopic surgery over traditional open surgery include: reduced pain, less scarring, and shorter recovery times. Using a laparoscope, a small tube with a camera on the end, the surgeon can see close-up images of the areas being operated on via a video monitor.
Dr. Whittwell specializes in the following types of laparoscopic surgery:
- Colon surgery
- Gallbladder surgery
- Hernia repair
- Hiatal hernia surgery
- Gastric band
- Gastric bypass
- Gastric sleeve
