Dr Florica specialises in a range of laparoscopic abdominal surgery such as gallbladder, bowel (colo-rectal), hernia and anti-reflux.
Based on our increasing experience with laparoscopic surgery we strongly believe that the advantages this method confers to both the surgical procedure and to patient outcomes make it a far superior preference to all but the minority of procedures.
Our best results based on our practice audit, are in laparoscopic gallbladder surgery where we achieved 99% of our procedures through keyhole surgery regardless of the severity of the disease or patient health status, with no surgical technical complications.
In our bariatric practice we have performed laparoscopic gastric banding system insertion with no major or minor technical complications and our results are consistent with best practice standards.
Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery
The advantage of laparoscopic hernia repair is in postoperative recovery:
less discomfort and full ambulation with minimal pain and discomfort and ability
to be back to work within one to two weeks as opposed to six to eight weeks
following other types of hernia surgery.
Laparoscopic repair is a major
advantage in the patient who has had previous hernia operations from the outside
with repeated recurrences, when the laparoscopic approach provides the ability
to repair the hernia from inside where the tissues have not been previously
operated on, making the surgery much easier and greatly diminishing the risk of
injury to vital structures which may not be identifiable in the scar tissue from
