Spleen Surgery

Splenic surgery, though not common, is another type of surgery performed by our surgeons. The spleen, which functions as a blood filtering organ, is removed for malignancies, pathologic enlargements, blood disorders and traumatic ruptures. In many circumstances, this type of procedure can be done with laparoscopic surgery through minimally invasive techniques.
