Expert in Laparoscopic Surgery
At Surgical Associates of North Texas, our focus on laparoscopic or minimally invasive techniques is such that Dr. deVilleneuve is considered an “expert” in both laparoscopic cholecystectomies (lap chole) and laparoscopic hernia repair. A quick ‘Google’ search, however, will lead you to believe that everyone who does these types of procedures is an “expert,” so what exactly does it mean to be an “expert” in minimally invasive surgery?
Being an expert in these is defined by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and by the Society of Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) as a surgeon who has successfully completed, after residency training, at least 150 laparoscopic cholecystectomies and at least 250 laparoscopic hernia repairs. Since completing his residency in 2004, Dr. deVilleneuve has performed over 1250 laparoscopic cholecystectomies and 2500 laparoscopic hernia repairs. You can see from these numbers that our focus on these advanced, minimally invasive types of procedures are such that you can feel very comfortable that when you choose us for your surgery, you are truly putting yourself in the hands of an “expert.”
