Minimally Invasive Surgical Treatments

When you or a loved one is in need of a general surgical procedure to treat a condition such as cancer or a hernia, our compassionate and skilled staff will provide the care needed. We perform surgical procedures for a wide range of conditions, including laparoscopic and robotically assisted surgeries.

Many surgeries are performed using the da Vinci® surgical system. This advanced technology is controlled by the surgeon, enabling them to make more precise movements through small incisions using high-definition 3D magnification.

With robotically assisted surgery, patients can experience:

  • Less post-operative pain and scarring
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Lower risk of infection

Surgical Specialties

Some of the surgeries we perform include:

Anti-Reflux Surgery

Acid reflux is a condition that is not only uncomfortable, but can also cause additional health complications if left untreated. Our highly trained surgical team performs anti-reflux surgery on patients experiencing conditions including severe inflammation of the esophagus, as well as Barrett’s esophagus, which is a change in the cells that occurs because of acid reflux.

Breast Surgery

Our experienced surgical team performs breast surgery in Modesto to treat breast cancer, breast masses, and cysts in the breast. Whether cancer has already been diagnosed and surgery is needed to remove it, or cancer is suspected and surgery is needed to remove and further assess an area of concern, our surgeons will provide skillful and compassionate care.

Colorectal Surgery

The surgeons at First California Physician Partners, Central Valley conduct minimally invasive colorectal surgical procedures to treat benign and malignant diseases of the colon and rectum. This includes removal of cancerous and non-cancerous polyps and tumors within the colorectal area.

Diverticulitis Surgery

Patients with diverticulitis that is severe or life-threatening are candidates for diverticulitis surgery in Modesto. A bowel resection will be performed, either with the infected portion of the colon removed and the healthy remaining ends attached, or with the infected portion of the colon removed and the bowel then connected to an opening in the abdomen. The latter option may be temporary or permanent, depending on recovery after surgery.

Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery

Endocrine surgery focuses on diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. An endocrine surgery procedure may be used to treat a wide range of diseases and disorders, including diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, Grave’s disease, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, parathyroid carcinoma, adrenal cancer, and thyroid cancer.

Gallbladder Surgery

Gallbladder surgery, or cholecystectomy, is a gallbladder removal surgery that is performed when the gallbladder stops working the way that it should. When the gallbladder stops working as it should, or bile levels become unbalanced, hard fragments known as gallstones begin to form. Gallstones do not go away on their own, and they can begin to cause pain or even other symptoms. When this occurs, removing the gallbladder is usually the course of action. A cholecystectomy is a very common procedure, and can often be done laparoscopically, leaving smaller incisions and requiring a shorter recovery period.

Hemorrhoid Surgery

Many hemorrhoids can be treated with lifestyle changes and non-prescription medications, but when hemorrhoids become a quality-of-life issue, surgery may become necessary. A hemorrhoidectomy can be performed to remove internal or external hemorrhoids to restore the patient’s comfort and quality of life.

Hernia and Groin Repair

Because hernias do not typically get better on their own, often grow bigger, and in some cases can lead to life-threatening complications, surgery is often recommended. A hernia operation repairs the hole in the tissue causing a lump or bulge. While not all hernias require surgery, your doctor will likely recommend it if the hernia is causing pain, limiting your daily activities, growing larger, or raising concern for other risks. Hernia risk includes tissue getting stuck and cutting off its blood supply, resulting in a surgical emergency.

Pancreatic Surgery

There are two main types of surgery that are performed to treat pancreatic cancer. Potentially curative surgery is used when the diagnosis shows that it may be possible to remove all of the cancer. Palliative surgery is performed when the cancer is too widespread for it to be removed completely, but it can relieve symptoms or prevent some complications like a blocked bile duct or intestine.

Paraesophageal Hernia Repair

A paraesophageal hernia repair restores the normal anatomy of the esophagus and stomach by closing a defect in the diaphragm. This surgery is often minimally invasive and can help to improve or eliminate heartburn and acid reflux.
