What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery employs new technologies to perform operations through several small incisions. We insert a camera or videoscope and specialized instruments through these tiny openings, eliminating the need for a large, conventional incision. This type of surgery leaves only a few small scars. They result in less post-operative pain and quicker recovery. Often the hospital stay is brief and patient can expect to return to normal activities in a matter of days. Those undergoing similar "open" operations usually require longer hospitalization and much longer recovery. Smaller incisions also mean better cosmetic results and fewer wound complications. If your physician recommends surgery, ask if you are a candidate for a minimally invasive approach.
We may use state-of-the-art Da Vinci robotic surgery technology to perform general surgery, colon surgery, hernia surgery and single site gallbladder removal surgery or cholecystectomy. Robotic surgery provides our surgeons with high-tech computerized “wristed” instruments, which are controlled by the surgeons’ hands, yet move far more precisely during robotic procedures. By adding greater precision to surgical procedures, robotic surgery can lead to less scarring, faster recovery and better outcomes.
Our goal is to inform patients and their loved ones about common medical conditions, the available treatments and surgical options. A state-of-the-art option used in many surgeries today is minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery.
With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Minimally invasive da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. da Vinci is beneficial for performing routine and complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.
