Minimal Access (Laparoscopic) Surgery and Robotic Surgery

  • GALLBLADDER REMOVAL

    $1,000.00
    Dr. Edelman pioneered laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the South Miami area in 1989, and has successfully performed and taught this procedure thousands of times. In this surgery to remove a diseased gallbladder, between one (single access) and three tiny incisions are made in the patient’s abdomen, with the primary surgery done through the umbilicus (belly button), hence the name “belly button surgery”. This is outpatient surgery; patients arrive for their surgery, and upon the completion of the surgery are usually able to go home within 23 hours. The surgery itself takes Dr. Edelman an average of 1 hour to complete. Return to work with a minimally invasive procedure such as single port or traditional laparoscopy is typically 1 week, with complete return to all activities, including strenuous exercise, within 6 weeks.
  • INGUINAL HERNIA

    $1,000.00
    Dr. Edelman is a leading figure in the treatment of inguinal and incisional hernias by the laparoscopic method. He has performed thousands of these procedures, and finds the patients have much less pain with the laparoscopic technique than the more traditional open repair. Complications are few and the rate of success is high. With Dr. Edelman’s technique, the incisions are less than a quarter of an inch in size and the procedure generally takes less than an hour to complete. Less time under anesthesia is always better for the patient, and this may help explain why patients seem to do so well after these procedures.Dr. Edelman has frequently used Robotics to do a hernia repair, where it will be of help. The robot benefits the patient because it allows Dr. Edelman to make very small incisions and provides him with a highly magnified view, resulting in a finely meticulous Hernia Repair. Patients recover quickly from this procedure, and it is as outpatient surgery.
  • SPORTS HERNIA

    $1,000.00
    Over the past several years Dr. Edelman has perfected a method of treatment for Sports Hernias. He is well recognized among the sports community and area orthopedic surgeons as being the surgeon best able to diagnose and repair this condition in South Florida. Dr. Edelman has worked with the NBA’s Miami Heat since 1989. He has also treated many professional athletes from the Florida Panthers, Miami Marlins, Miami Dolphins, Miami FC (Strikers), college athletes including those from the FIU sports program, and many other college and high school athletes. Of course, he has also helped many “weekend warriors” as well. Most patients require general anesthesia, and are treated in an outpatient facility. The repair of the hernia takes under an hour, and patients typically go home within 4 hours of their surgery. Patients can return to work within 3 days, and vigorous physical activity within 1 month.
  • HYPERHIDROSIS, ETS Surgery

    $2,200.00
    Perspiration is the body's natural method of cooling itself down during active periods or exposure to warm conditions. Severe hand sweating with a feeling of embarrassment is usually caused by an increased activity in the sympathetic nervous system a system of nerves over which we have no control. Such excessive perspiration and/or blushing is not important for normal regulation and control of body temperature. These conditions can be cured by dividing or clamping the nerves which regulate sweating of the hands, armpit and face as well as facial blushing. The surgical cure for this affliction is known as ETS or Endoscopic Transthoracic Sympathectomy. Dr. Edelman will locate the specialized area of the nervous system inside the chest cavity. Using a miniature camera and instruments, the nerve supply to the sweat glands is cut or clamped, preventing excessive sweating.The effect of the operation is immediate. Compensatory sweating occurs in all patients but only severe in 2% of patients.
  • ROBOTIC SURGERY

    $1,500.00
    This technology allows Dr. Edelman to work with greater precision using the highest quality optics and hand instruments. The robot enhances Dr. Edelman's ability to remove the gallbladder, repair an inguinal or abdominal wall hernia with or without placing mesh as well as other General Surgical procedures. Dr. Edelman was one on the early adopters of this technology using Aesop and Hermes and now using the DaVinci Robotic system. He has published articles and written chapters in surgical texts on this topic relating to hernia repairs. His vast surgical experience and care for you, his patient, will be recognized and appreciated as many have come to find.
  • SINGLE SITE SURGERY

    $1,000.00
    Single Site Laparoscopic Surgery is a minimal access technique where only one small, 1.5 inch incision is made in the belly button (umbilicus) to perform a surgery like a gallbladder removal or a hernia repair. Since 2008, Dr. Edelman has performed thousands of these types of surgeries. He was granted a patent from the US Patent office for a single site device which allows him to gain safe access into a patient’s abdominal cavity to perform a necessary operation using standard laparoscopic instruments or by Robotics. Single Site Surgery allows one small incision which can allow patients to recover sooner and get back to work in less time with less pain and less pain medication requirements. Do not hesitate to ask Dr. Edelman or his staff about the availability of this technology.

Testimonials

I had hernia surgery with Dr. Edelman in March, and everything went absolutely perfect. Aside from being a fine surgeon, Dr. Edelman treats his patients with genuine care, explains the procedure in clear, simple terms, and does not try to force a decision on the patient. You can't help but trust this doctor and go into surgery with full confidence in a positive outcome. The office staff is wonderful--very helpful, knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions in a friendly manner. I could not be happier with my choice of surgeon and his office.
