Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
Here are some of the procedures that Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe perform and conditions we treat using minimally invasive and traditional techniques:

Robotic Surgery
The latest frontier in surgery is Robotic Surgery. It’s usage for general surgery is evolving but certainly its usefulness and and advantages are becoming more evident. It does not replace laparoscopy but is a complementary technique and improves care. Three of our surgeons are part of the leading edge of practitioners that are credentialed in using robotic technology. Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe performs advanced robotic surgeries such as colon, pancreatic, gastric resections, repairing hernias and gallbladder utilizing robotic technology; as well as anti reflux procedures.

Laparoscopic surgery
By taking advantage of the latest developments being made in laparoscopic surgery, Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe can provide you with safer, less invasive procedures. Laparoscopic surgery is performed with a fiber-optic videoscope and other small instruments inserted through tiny incisions. This results in less pain and a faster recovery time.

Making Hernia Repair easier for you
Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe use a minimally invasive surgical procedure for hernia repair. That means less pain, less recovery time, less cost and less recurrence. We perform this leading-edge surgery on an outpatient basis, and it usually takes about an hour. You are able to go home after about two hours, and the recovery time is quicker. With certain types of hernias,Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe recommend a laparoscopic approach.

Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Albaran, Dr. Sullivan, and Dr. Kolbe have the state-of-the-art training and skill to treat the full spectrum of breast disease and cancer.
