Foregut Surgery

Minimally Invasive SurgeryMinimally invasive foregut surgery can treat conditions of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract which encompasses the esophagus, stomach, and upper small intestines, including the duodenum and jejunum. The minimally invasive approach to foregut surgery uses smaller incisions and often provides better outcomes than traditional open surgery in less time and with less discomfort for patients.

Minimally invasive surgical techniques have exploded in popularity in recent years and have now advanced well beyond conventional open surgery. Many illnesses of the foregut can be effectively treated with minimally invasive based techniques including:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Hiatal hernia
  • Achalasia and swallowing disorders
  • Gastroparesis
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Premalignant cancer

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Foregut Surgery

Minimally invasive surgical techniques involve smaller incisions and utilize the most cutting-edge technology to achieve results (often superior) to what was in the past only possible through more invasive and disruptive means.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Decreased pain
  • Reduced scarring
  • Low risk of infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Short hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to daily activities

The diseases affecting the upper GI tract differ significantly from conditions that impact the rest of the GI tract (such as the large intestine and rectum). The diagnosis, treatment, and management of these illnesses are complex given the spectrum of patient complaints can range from minor nuisance to chronic debilitating conditions.

Numerous studies have shown that surgeons who specialize in particular procedures attain the best results. Dr. Patel specializes in minimally invasive and laparoscopic treatment for diseases of the esophagus and stomach and is often referred some of the most challenging and complex cases by his medical colleagues throughout central Florida.

Dr. Patel is board certified in general surgery and has additional fellowship-trained in advanced gastrointestinal, minimally invasive, and bariatric surgery, including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery. He strives to provide his patients with state-of-the-art, personalized care in a comfortable, convenient, and community setting.

The Orlando Minimally Invasive Surgery team is proud to offer our patients superior treatment and outcomes using small incisions and the most advanced techniques available in surgical care today without compromising patient safety.
