Minimally Invasive Procedures

The practice of using cameras and other techniques to minimize surgical incisions has greatly evolved in the last decades. Minimally invasive surgery is now the norm for many surgical procedures. The benefits include faster healing, less pain and shorter recovery times. Patients who undergo minimally invasive procedures also have less infection risk, blood loss and scarring. Our doctors have extensive training with minimally invasive techniques, which they use to help their patients whenever possible.

Robotic surgery is an extension of minimally invasive surgery. For select procedures, a robot has its place facilitating specialists as they carry out surgeries that may be complicated or impossible with non-robotic approaches. Our surgeons control a camera and tiny instruments to keep a surgery small and delicate—the type of surgery you can recover from more quickly, with less pain.
