Minimally invasive surgery
Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as endoscopy, robotics and laparoscopy. These surgeries can often be outpatient procedures. Minimally invasive surgery offers patients many benefits compared to traditional surgery, including:
- Fewer scars
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Shorter recovery time
- Smaller incisions
Robotic surgery allows our surgeons to perform complex surgeries with extreme accuracy and only a few small incisions.
During a robotic-assisted surgery, the doctor controls the robotic system for the duration of the procedure. Their hand movements are translated into small, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside of the body.
