Not long ago, surgery used to be an invasive procedure that required large incisions, heavy doses of anesthesia and pain medication, and long hospital stays.
Now, many of our surgical procedures may be done with a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical technique. This enables our surgeons to perform entire surgeries through tiny incisions while decreasing pain, minimizing scarring, and allowing for a speedier recovery and return to normal routine. The ability to see inside the body has been made possible through advanced video imaging technology and improved instrumentation. Surgeons are able to perform complex procedures by watching the movements of the instruments inside the body on video monitors in the Operating Room.
