Other Procedures Performed

Dr. Edelman is a pioneer in single access laparoscopic surgery and performs a variety of other surgical procedures at the Laparoscopic Surgery Center of Miami. The operations are performed using a general (complete) anesthesia. A small, 1/2 inch, lighted telescope is placed in the umbilicus and a TV camera shows the inside of the belly on a TV screen. A few extra puncture sites are placed into the belly for other special instruments to sew and cut the inside organs. Most patients spend 1-3 days in the hospital depending on the type of LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY that is done. Pain is minimal and easily controlled with pain medication. Any questions should be asked of Dr. Edelman, he will be happy to explain them to you.

HERNIA REPAIR: The laparoscopic treatment of inguinal and incisional hernias has been met with tremendous acceptance. Dr. Edelman has performed thousands of successful procedures. The pain is much less than the conventional open repairs. The complications are few and the success rate is high. Failure of the laparoscopic procedure to fix the hernia is extremely low, less that 1%. Patients are given an anesthesic to sedate them and are then put completely asleep under general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is placed into the incision(s). The incisions are less than an inch in size. A special lighted telescope and instruments are placed in through hollow tubes behind the hernia, pulling the hernia back inside. A screen patch or mesh is placed over the hernia and tacked in place with tiny "Titanium" or absorable tacks. The operation is completed in under an hour. The patient is usually discharge in 4 hours. People return to work in a week or two and are seen at the Center for a post operative evaluation at that time. Dr Edelman specializes in Sport's Hernias, as well.

GALLBLADDER removal (LAPAROSCOPIC CHOLECYSTECTOMY) was introduced in Miami by Dr. Edelman in 1989 and he has successfully performed thousands of these procedures. Patients are kept overnight and discharged home the following morning after surgery. Single Access Technique is now done through the belly button.

COLON removal for diverticulosis, cancer and similar problems has been performed at the center since 1991 in hundreds of patients. A 3-4 day hospital stay is usually required.

HIATAL HERNIA REPAIR for heartburn is offered at the Center with excellent results. Hundreds of patients have had their reflux symptoms controlled, allowing them to discontinue their routine medications. A 1-2 day hospital stay is usually required after this surgery.
