Minimally Invasive Techniques

Whenever possible, our surgeons use laparoscopic surgery. It’s an alternative to traditional "open" surgery in which a large incision must be made. Our surgeons use laparoscopic surgery to make incisions only millimeters in size to create a passageway for special surgical instruments and a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a fiber-optic instrument that is inserted in the body. This device transmits images from within the body to a video monitor, allowing the surgeon to see the operative area on the screen.

Advantages to the minimally invasive approach include:

  • less discomfort
  • a shorter hospital stay
  • quicker recovery
  • reduced rate of infection
  • minimal scarring
