Spleen Surgery

At Overlook Surgical Associates, splenic surgery (splenectomy) is indicated in some forms of malignancy which can lead to enlargement of the spleen (lymphoma) as well as hematological diseases such as ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) and hemolytic anemias. Splenic cysts can be treated without removing the spleen. The majority of splenic surgery is done laparoscopically.
