ABDOMINAL Minimally Invasive Surgery

The team at Hudson Valley Surgical Group care about their patients' outcomes first and foremost. They are premiere diagnosticians in the area of unknown abdominal pain. Years ago, open abdominal surgery was performed by making large incisions that often led to lengthy recovery times and significant scarring. Now Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is used for many different abdominal procedures in less time, with far less complications.

Minimally Invasive Abdominal Surgery Advance Techniques

The best MIS surgeons in the area are at the Minimally Invasive Center of Hudson Valley Surgical Group.  They have redefined abdominal surgery with the advancement of MIS, robotic and laparoscopic technologies. With over 30+ years of traditional open surgery combined with the newest and best technical tool selection, they are able to proceed with custom surgical solutions that benefit their patients best. General abdominal surgery is now done through a series of small incisions to the abdominal wall (less than 1/2 inch long) instead of traditional open surgery which can require incisions 12-24 inches long. MIS, da Vinci robot and laparoscopic instruments allow the surgeons enhanced visibility and lighting to the abdominal area thus offering increased accuracy and effectiveness.

Generalized ABDOMINAL Patient Issues

As experts with access to a bevy of diagnostic tools including laparoscopes, this team is focused on developing a plan to uncover the underlying issues such as carcinoids, small bowel tumors and stomach tumors and rectify them. The most common abdominal MIS procedures include gallbladder, hernia, colon, stomach surgery, appendectomy. Our surgeons treat each patient with complete management of their individual care and which does not always include surgery.                  

Hudson Valley Surgical Group’s expertise also expands into more complex and less common surgeries.
