Minimally Invasive Surgery Program

The Minimally Invasive Surgery Program within the Division of General Surgery at UCLA has performed hundreds of advanced laparoscopic procedures over the past five years. Advanced procedures available are:

  • minimally invasive techniques for gastroesophageal reflux disease,
  • motility disorders of the esophagus,
  • benign and malignant diseases of the stomach and intestines,
  • disorders of the spleen and adrenal glands,
  • abdominal pain and
  • staging or biopsy techniques.

In addition, routine laparoscopic procedures including gallbladder removal, appendectomy, and hernia repair are performed regularly.

Minimally invasive techniques usually result in shorter hospital stays, less pain, and better cosmetic results.
