Our Procedures

Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that allows your health care provider to see the inside lining of the middle part of the GI tract, including portions of the small intestine. This procedure is chosen over an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy because the entire small intestine cannot be visualized by those procedures.

Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among people over 55.  Cataract Surgery is an effective procedure that can help restore a person’s vision.

Colonoscopy

Our gastroenterologists ensure patients receive a quality colonoscopy at a low cost. Learn more about how we perform a colonoscopy procedure.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery can be used to treat a variety of sinus blockage problems. This procedure is used to treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain; and straighten a deviated septum, which can obstruct the sinuses.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.

Esophageal Dilation

Esophageal dilation provides relief from difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia, by carefully dilating or stretching the wall of the esophagus to allow food to pass.

Fecal Transplant

Fecal microbiotica transplantation (FMT) involves transferring of healthy bacteria from a donor’s stool to your intestine to restore the proper balance of bacteria in your intestine so your immune system can be restored.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Glaucoma Surgery

While glaucoma is often treated with medicated eye drops, sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), a procedure that uses a low-level energy laser to target specific cells in the trabecular meshwork, the eye’s drainage channels.

Intraocular Lens

An intraocular lens, or IOL, is a clear, plastic lens that becomes a permanent part of the eye and requires no care. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient.

iStent Glaucoma Surgery With Cataract Surgery

In 2012, the FDA approved a device called the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent System to treat symptoms of glaucoma. This is the first device that has been approved in conjunction with cataract surgery to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in adult patients with mild or moderate open-angle glaucoma and a cataract who are currently on IOP medication.

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is a fully customizable, precision care solution for restoring your clearest possible vision. This pre-planned outpatient procedure offers predictability and convenience.

Laser Trabeculoplasty

If you have open angle glaucoma and your eyesight is getting worse in spite of medication, your doctor may recommend laser trabeculoplasty as an initial surgical option. Laser trabeculoplasty uses a focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of your eye.

Oculoplastics & Reconstructive Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery refers to a wide variety of surgical procedures that treat the eyelids, tear ducts and the face.

Pain Stimulator Insertion (Spinal Cord Stimulation)

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system. 

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium is also known as surfer’s eye because of its common occurrence in surfers. Individuals with pterygium have a growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the white of the eye. If symptoms are mild, pterygium usually doesn’t require treatment. If pterygium worsens and causes redness or irritation, it can be treated with some form of eye drops. If the lesion causes discomfort or interferes with vision, it can be surgically removed in an outpatient procedure.

Revision Sinus Surgery

Revision sinus surgery is used to straighten a deviated septum; treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; and create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain.

Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is another way to treat patients with chronic sinusitis who have not responded well to medical therapies. This procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways. 

Trabeculectomy

Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove part of the trabeculum in the eye to reduce pressure caused by glaucoma. Trabeculectomy is used to treat open-angle glaucoma and chronic closed-angle glaucoma.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.

Vitrectomy

A vitrectomy is one of the procedures used to repair a detached retina. This procedure removes portions of the vitreous. This is sometimes necessary when the vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye, blocks the surgeon’s view of the detached retina.

YAG Laser Procedure

Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
