Vascular Surgery

Vascular Surgery involves surgery on blood vessels throughout the body, except those within the heart and brain.

  • Arterio-venous shunt for dialysis
  • Balloon dilation
  • Carotid artery surgery

Advanced Laparoscopy

Advanced Laparoscopy involves placing a small tube with a light source into the abdomen or chest cavity to examine the internal organs. These procedures are often used to determine the diagnosis or extent of a disease, and for the performance of the actual surgery.

Some common procedures include:

  • Gall Bladder Surgery
  • Reflux Surgery (Heartburn Surgery)
  • Colon Surgery
  • Cancer Staging
  • Solid Organ Biopsy or Removal
  • Hernia Repair
  • Splenectomy

Surgical Oncology

Surgical Oncology involves general surgical procedures of many treatable cancers, and the management of all aspects of cancer therapy. This includes surgical intervention, coordination with the medical and radiation oncologist and involvement in national protocols for new treatment of cancer. Although general surgery training includes intensive training in cancers that are surgically treated, there are unusual cancers that require further training. Surgical Associates of Marquette provides this type of care and is active in support groups for patients with some types of cancer.
