About Cedar Park Surgeons
The surgeons at Cedar Park Surgeons provide compassionate care to the general and bariatric surgical patient. They use the latest technology with minimal scarring to help their patients get back on track to their normal lifestyle. They perform a wide range of surgical procedures encompassing gastrointestinal tract surgery (colon, small intestine and stomach), gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery (specializing in laparoscopic technique), and breast cancer surgery.
It is often difficult to completely enjoy life when you are struggling with obesity and obesity-related health problems. Seemingly routine tasks become cumbersome, moving can be painful, and social events are frequently awkward. Eventually these troubles can take their toll on your confidence, self-esteem, even relationships. But with bariatric surgery, you have the power to turn your life around. Bariatric surgery, offered by Cedar Park Surgeons, PA, located in the Austin area, comprises a set of procedures that, along with obesity surgery education and valuable weight loss support resources, can result in rapid weight loss and a reduced risk of obesity-related health problems. Bariatric surgery is not merely a cosmetic procedure and should not be considered as such. Rather, it is a solution to improve a person's overall health and quality of life.
Our surgeons help people get back to life through general surgical procedures such as hernia repair, gallbladder surgery, removing diseased colon caused by diverticulitis and cancer and removing cancers of the breast and GI tract. Both surgeons are board-certified in general surgery and have a specialization in minimally invasive surgical technique. They perform most of their surgeries using the latest surgical techniques. They are among the only surgeons in Austin using the da Vinci robot to help perform general and bariatric surgical procedures. Using these minimally invasive techniques helps decrease pain after surgery to help their patients get back to life quicker!
At Cedar Park Surgeons, PA, our skilled, compassionate surgeons Dr. Alan Abando and Dr. Nicole Basa turn the dream of attaining a healthy weight into a reality for their patients through procedures such as the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Our practice believes in a multidisciplinary approach to transform patients into happier, healthier, and more active versions of themselves. Take the first step to a new you!
