Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)

Bariatric Surgery

Surgical Endoscopy

Tulane University School of Medicine is a leading Minimally Invasive Gastrointestinal Surgery referral center for the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coast region.  As an academic medical center Tulane offers a wide variety of surgical services that are not commonly performed in community hospitals and is a resource for patients that have been turned down for surgery at other facilities. Tulane surgeons are also available as a resource for patients that are seeking a second opinion.

Tulane surgeons are experts in all minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopic, robotic-assisted surgery, bariatric surgery and peri-oral endoscopic surgery. Tulane is also a center for teaching minimally invasive surgical and advanced endoscopic techniques.   Minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery is advantageous for patients because of the reduced risk of infection, shorter hospital stays, reduced post-operative pain, improved recovery times, and a quicker return to everyday activities.

Please feel free to schedule an appointment with one of our advanced gastrointestinal surgeons or meet with our Minimally Invasive Surgical team to see your surgical options in regard to laparoscopic, robotic or endoscopic intervention. We are also available for a second opinion consultation. Please contact our Advanced GI & MIS Surgery Clinic at (504) 988-5110 or by e-mailing us at surgery@tulane.edu. We look forward to serving you.
