Bowel & Abdominal Surgery in Phoenix, AZ
We perform surgical procedures involving the stomach, intestines, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, and appendix.
Removal of the appendix is used to treat appendicitis. The team at Surgical Professionals has successfully performed this common surgery for many patients over the past 20 years.
Left untreated, hernias do not go away on their own and may continue to grow. These abdominal wall protrusions sometimes cause pain and discomfort. A common procedure performed by our Phoenix team, hernia surgery can be done via laparoscopy, open surgery, or robotic-assisted surgery (DaVinci System).
When gallstones or growths cause distress to the gallbladder, a cholecystectomy is performed to remove the organ, typically through laparoscopic (minimally invasive) techniques. Gallstones affect millions of Americans, and in most cases, those who have laparoscopic gallbladder surgery can return home the same day.
Colostomy & Colectomy
A colectomy is performed to remove all or part of the colon. In some cases, a colostomy — an opening to the outside of the body that excretes stool into a bag — is needed after a colectomy. Considered a major surgery, a colectomy is performed under general anesthesia and can take from one to four hours to complete.
Typically performed to treat cancer of the stomach, a gastrectomy involves removal of part or all of the stomach. Depending on the extent of the surgery, our Phoenix team may opt for an open or laparoscopic procedure.
Surgery to remove the spleen is typically performed when the organ is injured, infected, enlarged, or has ruptured. Other conditions that result in spleen surgery include cancer and blood disorders. Surgical Professionals in Phoenix uses the most advanced surgical techniques that mitigate splenectomy surgery risk and improve outcomes.
A partial or distal pancreatectomy is a surgery to remove a tumor from the tail or body of the pancreas. There is usually enough of the pancreas left after surgery to make the hormones (insulin, glucagon) and enzymes that aid in digestion.
The breast surgeries performed by our Phoenix team are done using the latest techniques and technologies. Breast surgery, one of the most common procedures in the country, is performed to remove cancerous tissue, remove scar tissue, restore the shape of the breast, remove benign lesions, and drain breast abscesses. Other procedures include biopsies (lumpectomies) and portacath placement for chemotherapy medications.
The team at Surgical Professionals has performed countless thyroid procedures for Phoenix-area patients. A common operation, thyroid surgery treats conditions such as thyroid nodules or goiters, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), Graves disease, and an enlarged thyroid.
Surgical oncology focuses on using surgery to diagnose, stage, and treat cancer. Roughly one in five Americans develops skin cancer by the age of 70. Fortunately, early treatment, including surgery, is among our Phoenix team’s professional oncologic services.
