Carpal tunnel surgery
No one ever realizes how much they use their hands in daily activities until one day they start to hurt and the pain quickly becomes unmanageable, preventing a person from doing their jobs or even simple tasks around the house. Every year, more than 500,000 Americans undergo surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. Crescent City Surgical Centre’s caring physicians will fix your carpal tunnel syndrome in the most effective, least invasive way possible.
Total Hip replacement
If your hip has been damaged through a fracture, arthritis, or other conditions, simple activities like walking or getting out of a chair or tying shoelaces can become extraordinarily difficult. Improvements in surgical techniques and technologies have made hip replacements more effective and long lasting, helping patients dramatically reduce their pain and dramatically increase their mobility.
Total Knee replacement
Knee pain, be it from injuries or arthritis, affects not only walking and activities like climbing stairs. Even sitting or lying down can cause great discomfort for people with serious knee issues. Since the first knee replacement in 1968, the procedure has become more effective and less invasive. Crescent City Surgical Centre’s highly skilled physicians and advanced techniques can get you back on your feet.
Arthroscopically aided surgical procedures
to include shoulder, hand, hip, knee, foot and ankle
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive way to examine and treat the damage to the interior of a joint without having to open up the joint fully. Crescent City Surgical Centre offers arthroscopic options for the shoulder, hand, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.
This surgery makes the stomach smaller, allowing food to bypass part of the small intestine. It makes patients feel fuller quicker. They eat less and absorb less calories after the surgery. It’s one of many bariatric surgery options at Crescent City Surgical Centre.
A gastric band is an inflatable device placed around the top of the stomach in a laparoscopic procedure, causing a patient to feel full sooner. No portion of the stomach is stapled or removed in this procedure, allowing for a shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery.
This is a laparoscopic procedure (meaning one small incision r incisions as opposed to a large one) that removes about 85% of the stomach, causing it to take the shape of a sleeve. Most people who have gastric sleeve surgery lose 50 to 80% of their excess body weight within a year of the procedure.
This procedure has two parts - a restrictive aspect that removes approximately 70% of the stomach and a malabsorptive aspect that reroutes a portion of the small intestine. This reduces the amount of time the body can capture calories from food and limits the absorption of fat. After the surgery, patients only absorb roughly 20% of the fat they consume.
While most bariatric procedures are successful, there is occasionally the need for a revision. For patients who suffer from minimal weight loss or weight gain after a procedure, revisional surgery is available to correct any issues and get the patients to lose the weight they desire.
POSE (Primary Obesity Surgery Endoscopic)
This is a new type of transoral weight loss surgery that mimics the effects of standard bariatric surgeries by restricting the amount of nutrients the stomach can absorb. However, POSE accesses the stomach via a tube through the mouth or nose instead of cutting into the stomach, allowing for minimal downtime for the patient and no abdominal scarring.
Tonsil and adenoid
Some adults and children are prone to infections of the tonsil or adenoids. Other people suffer from large adenoids and tonsils that cause heavy snoring and mouth breathing. In either case, a person’s overall health can be improved by the removal of tonsils or adenoids.
This is a corrective procedure designed to fix a deviated septum (a displacement of bone and cartilage that divides the two nostrils). If uncorrected, deviated septums can cause breathing difficulties and repeated sinus infections.
Rhinoplasty can reconstruct the form of a nose to improve its appearance or restore function by correcting breathing problems or other nasal defects.
Endoscopic sinus surgery
This procedure involves inserting a thin endoscope through the nostrils to remove blockages in the sinuses. Blockages, if left untreated, cause sinusitis, which makes the sinuses swell and become clogged, causing pain and difficulty breathing. Almost 90% of people report a considerable reduction in their symptoms after endoscopic sinus surgery.
The removal of all or part of the thyroid can be used to treat a number of disorders from thyroid cancer to goiter (non-cancerous enlargement of the thyroid) to overactive thyroid.
These are some of the most common plastic surgery procedures. With a variety of techniques, women can enjoy a safe augmentation experience and receive breasts that look and feel natural.

This common procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen to tighten stomach muscle and give the abdomen a firmer look. There are a number of different types of tummy tucks available and Crescent City Surgical Center’s trained physicians can determine which is best for you.
Scar revision is surgery that improves the appearance of scars, making them blend in more with the surrounding skin. In some cases, they can be removed completely, increasing a person’s confidence in their appearance.
The most common treat for colon cancer is surgery. If the cancer is found early, it can be removed with a colonoscope, but the most common procedure is the colon resection, where the tumor is removed, then the colon is reconnected so it’s in one piece.
Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease, can be debilitating and require surgery. A variety of procedures offered at Crescent City Surgical Centre can be used to fix this, including colostomy and ileostomy.
Fissure/fistula related procedures
An anal fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anus and is often caused by constipation, but can also be caused by severe diarrhea or inflammation. A fistula is a tiny channel or tract that develops due to inflammation or infection or certain illnesses like Crohn’s Disease. Surgeries for both ailments can be done quickly and usually only involve a brief recovery period.
Laparoscopic hernia / surgical repair
Traditional surgeries to repair hernias have been open surgeries, which are effective, but often painful and with a lengthy recovery period. With laparoscopic hernia repair, the operation is shorter and the incisions much smaller, resulting in less pain and a shorter recovery period.
Esophageal surgery can be required to treat esophageal cancer or disorder like achalasia (where the valve at the bottom of the esophagus is permanently closed). Surgical and laparoscopic options are available for esophageal disorders.
Many situations can require the removal of a gallbladder, from gallstones to live problems to pancreatitis. The most common way to remove the gallbladder is via a laparoscope and most people recover quickly.
GERD, also known as acid reflux or heartburn, is often treated by non-surgical methods, but sometimes it can be so severe that it requires surgery where the connection between the stomach and diaphragm is repaired or the esophageal sphincter is strengthened.
Epidural Steroid Injections
For people suffering from intense pain, an epidural steroid injection can relieve pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms caused by nerve inflammation, irritation, or swelling. The injection only takes a few minutes and patients feel relief within a few days.
Computed Topography scans
Also known as CT scans, these scans create a three-dimensional image of the inside of a patient’s body and are invaluable in diagnosing various injuries and ailments.
Fluoroscopy is a technique for obtaining live X-ray images of a patient, allowing radiologists to watch the images live on a monitor. It is often used to observe the digestive tract in procedures like an Upper GI series.
Myelography involves introducing a needle into the spinal canal and injecting contrast material around the spinal cord and nerve roots. The result is an extraordinarily detailed picture of the spinal cord and the spinal column.
Men and Women's Health
Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs.
Gynaecology or gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus and ovaries) and the breasts. Literally, outside medicine, it means "the science of women". Its counterpart is andrology, which deals with medical issues specific to the male reproductive system.
