All of the surgeons are pioneers in minimally invasive procedures and continue to bring new, cutting-edge techniques to the communities they serve. With smaller incisions and less trauma to surrounding tissue, minimally invasive surgery typically results in better outcomes, faster recovery, less scarring, less risk of infection, less blood loss, shorter recovery periods and hospital stays, and better clinical outcomes than traditional open surgery.
Offering a vast array of leading-edge surgical services, Surgical Associates of Mansfield’s expertise spans a wide array of procedures including those listed below.
The ground breaking da Vinci Surgical System helps surgeons overcome many of the potential challenges associated with traditional open and laparoscopic surgery. The da Vinci System changes surgery for patients and physicians alike. Surgeons trained on the da Vinci System operate robotic arms equipped with tiny instruments, through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, it enables a trained surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. In addition to the benefits of traditional minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery previously mentioned, the da Vinci System can offer a more delicate approach to procedures, and less movement and handling of body tissues.
Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery
Obesity is a silent killer that touches the lives of thousands of North Texans and affects more than one-third of adults in the U.S. Obesity has been linked to an increased risk for certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, joint pain, cardiovascular disease, infertility and problems with pregnancy, poorer mental health, and more. It also impacts one’s self-esteem, relationships, and overall quality of life. When nonsurgical measures such as diet and exercise haven’t worked, surgical weight-loss offers many people new hope for a better, healthier life.
The surgeons at Surgical Associates of Mansfield have performed hundreds of successful bariatric surgeries, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, and gastric balloon weight loss system. They also perform revision surgery, including removal of gastric bands and/or conversion to a different bariatric surgery, giving patients a second chance at permanent weight loss.
They conduct a thorough surgical, medical, psychological, and nutritional evaluation of each weight loss surgery candidate using a multi-disciplinary approach, then educate them about options so they can make an informed decision. This, along with postoperative follow up, can improve the chances of a successful outcome and helps ensure the patient is mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for life after surgery.
Emergency Surgery and Trauma
Whether the unexpected happens and an accident or injury occurs, or a surgical emergency arises due to disease or illness, it’s imperative you have a surgeon that is highly qualified and available as quickly as possible. The surgeons at Surgical Associates of Mansfield are ready, responding swiftly when unplanned, unscheduled emergency surgery is required. And although they perform what are often life-saving surgeries, they use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. At the same time, deeply caring and compassionate, surgeons with Surgical Associates of Mansfield strive to spend time with the patient’s loved ones to explain the situation and answer questions.
Hernia Repair Surgery
More than one million hernia repairs are performed in the U.S. each year. Approximately 800,000 are to repair inguinal (inner groin) hernias, the most common type of hernia, and the rest are for other types of hernias. In an inguinal hernia, the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. Other types include incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal hernia (upper stomach). The vast majority of these hernia repairs including complex cases are able to be approached robotically. Since not all patients are good candidates for robotic-assisted hernia surgery, the team also performs traditional laparoscopy as well as open surgery when required.
This surgical team is at the forefront of abdominal wall reconstruction and routinely uses da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery for hernia repair. In many cases, the da Vinci system provides a high-resolution 3D view of the hernia that a 2D view, available via traditional laparoscopy, doesn’t offer. Since not all patients are good candidat
es for robotic-assisted surgery, the team also performs traditional laparoscopic hernia repair as well an open surgery when required.
If gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD, acid reflux), symptoms are severe and cannot be eased with over-the-counter medications and lifestyle changes, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgical Associates of Mansfield has helped hundreds of patients suffering with GERD, heartburn, other types of reflux condition with minimally invasive surgical procedures, including robotic hiatal hernia repair, robotic fundoplication, endoscopic fundoplication (transoral incisionless fundoplication), and robotic LINX procedure.
