General surgery specialists for Alaska
Alaska Surgical Group addresses all types of general surgery using the most advanced surgical options including:
- Minimally invasive general surgery that reduces the length of incision, lessens time in the hospital
- Laparoscopic surgery where the surgeon repairs and addresses internal problems through small one-inch-long incisions by using instruments the width of a ball point pen. These instruments have cameras in the tip and cutting tools.
- DaVinci Robotic Surgery: This new advance in surgery enables surgeons to perform operations through tiny small incisions. The Da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. The system magnified vision system gives surgeons a 3D high-definition view inside the patient’s body.
Alaska Surgical Group is based on the campus of Providence Health in Anchorage. It receives referrals from physicians across Alaska.
