Dr. Lewis has particular expertise in treating abdominal wall disorders, hernias, colon cancer, acid reflux disease, and performing gastric surgery, breast cancer surgery, and biliary tract (gallbladder) surgery. Additionally, he expertly performs minimally invasive surgeries, including advanced single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) to treat a variety of diseases.
Dr. Lewis also treats varicose veins. Varicose veins are dilated, twisting and bulging veins. Symptoms include aching, swelling, itching and heaviness in the leg. Varicose veins make it difficult to stand, walk, work and participate in your favorite activities. Left untreated, they can become a serious medical condition and may cause blood clots, skin ulcerations, bleeding and skin pigment changes. Today, we have the next-generation medical technology to treat the problem; minimally invasive catheters that close the diseased main vein from within. This can be treated in the office with a local anesthetic.
