Several related conditions to gastrectomy are treated using Florida Hospital’s advanced minimally invasive surgical technique. The specific type of surgery recommended by surgeons will vary depending on the patient’s overall health, health goals and condition.
For qualified patients with these related conditions, doctors may recommend minimally invasive partial or total gastrectomy:
- Stomach cancer
- Blood in the vomit or the stool
- Life-threatening obesity (vertical sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgery)
- Non-cancerous tumors blocking the stomach
- Polyps found in the stomach
