Tests & Treatments

  • Appendectomy
    Our physicians are pioneers in using minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic appendectomy, which is less painful and reduces scarring as compared with open surgery.

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.
