For some people with Crohn’s disease, anti-inflammatory drugs, nutrition therapy, immune system suppressors, and other non-invasive treatments allow them to manage this incurable condition and live full, productive lives. For approximately half of all people who suffer from Crohn’s disease, however, laparoscopic surgery represents their best chance of finding relief from excruciating abdominal pain, fatigue, diarrhea, and other nagging symptoms. While laparoscopic surgery cannot cure Crohn’s disease, it can give sufferers a chance to escape the pain and, usually in combination with drug therapies, prevent future recurrences from being as severe.

If you are interested in undergoing laparoscopic Crohn’s disease treatment, our Manhattan practice, Laparoscopic Surgical Center of New York, offers exceptional care provided by some of this nation’s most experienced and talented surgeons. We use the most advanced technologies and minimally invasive techniques to perform laparoscopic colon surgery so that patients experience minim downtime and risk of side effects and are able to resume their lives as quickly as possible.

At the Laparoscopic Surgical Center of New York, we provide patients throughout Manhattan with advanced surgery that is minimally invasive. This means providing state-of-the-art laparoscopic techniques for a variety of surgical procedures, limiting incision size and scarring while also improving healing times and patient recovery.

Many patients who undergo surgery at our facility are able to return home to recover on the same day as their minimally invasive surgery procedure. This is known as outpatient surgery, the benefits of which we'd like to go over right now.

Few people would disagree that a healthy diet and exercise regimen is the best way to get in shape. However, not everyone understands just how difficult this can be, especially those who have already settled into poor habits or have a particularly hard time shedding weight. For the obese, a more dramatic and immediate first step is often necessary to give someone the impetus to keep going, and to help the effects of the new lifestyle truly take shape.

Weight loss surgery may be a viable option for the right candidates, provided they are committed to taking their health and appearance into their own hands. At our Manhattan weight loss clinic, we offer several types of laparoscopic bariatric surgery, giving our patients the opportunity to choose a treatment that best suits their needs. If you are considering surgery as a way to start your weight loss transformation, take a moment to learn the differences between your treatment options.
