The spleen helps your body fight infection, but it can be removed if it is diseased or injured. Your surgeon may perform open surgery to remove your spleen or, if you qualify, they may employ minimally invasive surgery.


Your doctor, along with our team, can provide you with the highest-quality care during your surgery and recovery. They may advise you on how to minimize your exposure to disease and infection after your spleen is removed.
