In addition to minimally invasive weight loss surgery, Evolve also specializes in abdominal surgery. Our abdominal experts use minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques to ensure quicker, easier recoveries. Evolve’s board certified surgeons are heavily experienced in several types of abdominal surgery. Below are some of the most common conditions we treat.
Every once in a while your tissues or muscles in your body may weaken. As a result, organs can push through this opening causing a hernia. While hernias are most common in the abdomen, they also appear in the upper thigh, belly button and groin areas. Hernias will not go away on their own and are therefore treated through Hernia Repair Surgery.
GERD (Acid Reflux Disease)
Think you have gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD)? You are not alone. Over 50 million adults in the US experience heartburn several times a week. Evolve specializes in a handful of minimally invasive procedures which can help resolve the annoying pains of hearburn and acid reflux.
Located in the upper right part of your abdomen, your gallbladder stores bile produced from the liver to help with digestion. Occasionally, abnormalities within this organ can occur leading to upper abdomen pain, indigestion and nausea/vomiting. Evolve treats both gallstones and other gallbladder abnormalities through minimally invasive techniques.
