What is Surgery?

- Minor procedures
- Skin biopsy
- Local excisions
The Affinity Surgery Clinic
The Affinity Surgery Clinic provides surgeries and procedures, including the following:
Hernia Repair – The laparoscopic version of hernia repair is similar to traditional methods, but results in less tension on the hernia site and a remarkably shorter, more comfortable recovery period for you.
Gallbladder/Bile Duct Surgery – Today’s laparoscopic gallbladder surgery can mean a recovery period of only about two weeks with incisions so small, sometimes only surgical tape is needed to close them.
Gastric Bypass – This surgery to treat severe obesity employs laparoscopy to safely close off the lower portion of the stomach, helping you feel full longer.
Gastric Sleeve – Another type of surgery to treat obesity that employs laparoscopy to remove part of your stomach and creates a new, tube-shaped stomach or "sleeve". This surgery is irreversible.
Colon Surgery – Colectomies are performed to treat and prevent diseases and conditions that affect the colon. A Colectomy is a surgical procedure in which all or part of your large intestine is resected.
