Minimally invasive surgery

Our surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery. Our surgical approach is personalized for your needs. We focus on techniques that help improve wound healing, manage pain with less medication, and help you return to your daily activities. The general surgical procedures typically treated with a minimally invasive approach include:

  • Appendectomy
  • Breast biopsy
  • Gallbladder removal
  • Groin hernia repair
  • Thyroid surgery

The recovery process for minimally invasive surgeries may be quicker than regular surgery and typically doesn’t require an overnight stay in the hospital.

Robotic surgery with increased precision

Robotic-assisted technology is driven and directed by the surgeon. Using precision techniques, this surgical approach may be recommended. The da Vinci Surgical System® provides an alternative to open and conventional surgical techniques and enhances the surgeon’s visual field with 3D vision, 360-degree motion and precision instrument placement. Robotic surgery has many applications, including:

  • Appendix removal and abdominal surgery
  • Cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallstones or biliary dyskinesia
  • Colon cancer surgery
  • Esophagus GERD procedures
  • Hernia repair
  • Inflammatory bowel obstruction repair
  • Splenectomy - spleen removal
