General & Vascular Surgery 

Moreland Surgery Center offers a variety of general and vascular surgery procedures to help maintain and promote patient health. Moreland Surgery Center provides our surgeons with high definition video camera equipment to perform the latest minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedures to facilitate faster patient recovery time.
Here is a brief overview of some of our more common procedures:

Hernia Repair

A hernia is a general term referring to a protrusion of tissue through the wall of the cavity in which it is normally contained. Most areas of the body are separated by tissue walls that are made up of muscle, fascia (a thick band of fibrous tissue), or other structures. Occasionally, a weakness will develop in a tissue wall allowing the contents to push outward or sometimes to push completely through the wall. These weak points tend to develop in similar areas for most people and therefore are usually well understood and easily recognized by a physician. Hernia repair (or Herniorrhaphy) is surgery to correct a hernia and is carried out using a variety of techniques depending on the location and size of the protrusion. Most hernia repairs can be done using either the conventional open surgery or laparoscopic.

Hemorrhoid Surgery

Hemorrhoid surgery (also called hemorrhoidectomy) is the surgical removal of hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen or enlarged veins located inside (internal) and outside (external) the anus. They are usually caused by straining when constipated or during pregnancy. The surgery can remove large internal hemorrhoids that do not respond to non-surgical treatment and large external hemorrhoids.

Gallbladder Removal

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal (also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy) is the procedure where the gallbladder is removed using instruments inserted through small incisions in the abdomen. The procedure is performed in an operating room with the patient under general anesthesia. The gallbladder is an organ that stores bile used in food digestion. The gallbladder is located under the liver. Sometimes gallstones that block the normal flow of bile to the small intestine can form in the gall bladder and cause pancreatitis, a dangerous condition. When pancreatitis occurs or gallbladder cancer is suspected, the gallbladder is removed.

Breast Lumpectomy

Lumpectomy, also called partial mastectomy, is the removal of part of the breast and sometimes nearby lymph nodes to remove suspected cancerous cells. It is the most common type of breast cancer surgery. Lumpectomy is followed by radiation therapy for approximately six weeks to destroy any cancer cells that may still be in the breast tissue.

Central Venous Access Device Insertion

In medicine, a "central venous access device" or “port”is a small medical appliance that is installed beneath the skin. A connects the port to a vein. Under the skin, the port has aseptum through which drugs can be injected and blood samples can be drawn many times, usually with less discomfort for the patient than a more typical "needle stick". Ports are used mostly to treat hematology and oncology patients, but recently ports have been adapted also for hemodialysis patients. The port is usually inserted in the upper chest, just below the clavicle or collar bone, leaving the patient's hands free. There are several different brand names for these ports such as: Port-a-Cath, Microport, Bardport, PowerPort (power injectable), Passport, Infuse-a-Port, Medi-Port, and Lifesite (for hemodialysis patients). The term totally implantable venous access system (TIVAS) is also used.

Lesion Excision

Patients ask to have skin lesions or moles removed for a variety of reasons.  For some, the mole has changed and the patient is concerned about the possibility of skin caner.  For others, the mole is symptomatic (pain, bleed, itch…) or they just don’t like how it looks.  Generally, skin lesion excision is a very quick and relatively painless procedure that takes only about 10 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
