The Essure Procedure is a permanent contraception option for women that can be performed in the office with NO incisions or general anesthesia. With much less surgical risk than laparoscopic tubal ligation, the Essure offers women a quick recovery and higher rate of effectiveness at preventing pregnancy.

The surgeons at Associated Urologists of Orange County include Dr. Garo Tertzakian, Dr. Matthew Greenberger, Dr. William Pearce and Dr.
Prior surgical implants make robotic surgery more challenging. Theoretically, infection risks are higher. We show that the neocapsule around an inflatable reservoir can be preserved while performing a robotic prostatectomy.
Robotic technology allows the tubal reversal procedure (re-anastomosis) to be performed via minimally invasive approach eliminating the need for open surgery with large scars.
Ben Sorensen, Director of Product Management at NDS Surgical Imaging, demonstrates the ConductOR™ video integration system live at Digestive Disease Week 2011 in Chicago. ConductOR is a customizable, modular solution enabling routing of virtually any imaging source to the surgeon's field of view, delivering all the functionality of a typical a/v rack in one compact appliance.
Three to five years after gastric bypass surgery, some patients start to regain weight because the size of their stoma (the opening at the bottom of the stomach pouch) or their stomach pouch itself has increased. This can keep you from feeling full after small meals. To resolve this problem, our surgeons use new surgical tools to create and suture folds into the pouch, reducing its volume and at the stoma to decrease its diameter.
Rotator cuff is the group of tendons in the shoulder joint providing support and enabling wider range of motion. Major injury to these tendons may result in tear of these tendons and the condition is called as rotator cuff tear.
ACL reconstruction surgery with partial meniscal tear performed by Dr. Troy Layton with SportsMED Orthopaedic Surgery and Spine Center in Huntsville Alabama.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports the story of a woman who turned down open heart surgery and instead opted for the ‘heart attack proof’ diet.
