Patrick Moore MD Inc, a medical practice in Murrieta, CA, headed by Patrick Moore, MD FACS, has revealed that he offers gallbladder surgery, hernia repair, breast cancer surgery, and more. Thus, when in need of gallbladder surgery Murrieta residents can go to Patrick Moore MD Inc where Dr. Moore can offer the latest robotic-assisted laparoscopic gallbladder surgery with Firefly technology. This is a minimally invasive surgery compared to the conventional method of removing the gallbladder through open surgery with a large incision.
Dr. Moore explains, “In the robotic-assisted laparoscopic gallbladder surgery with Firefly technology, a high definition 3-D camera provides the view inside a patient’s body. The daVinci system translates my movements precisely to the instruments to remove the gallbladder. The Firefly technology provides real-time data regarding the anatomy. The primary benefit of this minimally invasive approach is that patients generally go home the same day of surgery and usually are off of pain medications in a few days.”
The gallbladder is a small organ whose function is to store bile produced by the liver. It releases bile into the small intestine after every meal to help with digestion. However, the gallbladder can become inflamed or gallstones could form inside it, causing symptoms, such as bloating, nausea, or abdominal pain. If this happens, the doctor may find it necessary to remove the gallbladder.
Meanwhile, Dr. Moore can also perform hernia repair. A hernia is a bulge through a weak portion of the abdominal muscle and it usually contains a portion of the intestine. Hernia repair must be performed before it causes symptoms, such as obstruction or pain. When needing hernia repair Murrieta patients can depend on Dr. Moore to perform robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery. This minimally invasive procedure can be used to repair umbilical, groin, and abdominal wall hernias through three small incisions. Patients are able to go home the same day of surgery and they stop taking pain medications after a few days.
Another health issue that Dr. Moore can help with is breast cancer. This is the second most common cancer in women and increasing age is the most common risk factor. The majority of breast cancers occur randomly in women with no family history and 66 percent of breast cancers being diagnosed in women beyond the age of 55. Dr. Moore belongs to a multidisciplinary team that includes radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, and plastic surgeons specialized in the treatment of breast cancer. He has more than 20 years of experience in performing breast cancer surgery. Dr. Moore is a breast cancer surgeon who provides robotic-assisted surgery to residents of Murrieta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, Temecula, Hemet, Fallbrook, Wildomar, and Corona.
