Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is a surgery that is performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. Because the incisions are small, patients experience many benefits, including:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Reduced chance of infection
  • Faster healing times
  • Smaller incisions and scars
  • Shorter hospital stays: patients typically go home within one day

Endoscopic surgery
Non-robotic minimally invasive surgery is also known as endoscopic surgery. You also may be familiar with the term laparoscopic surgery. These minimally invasive procedures utilize an endoscope to reach internal organs through very small incisions.

Our endoscopy department includes state-of-the-art endoscopy units equipped with a full array of services, including fluoroscopy.

Procedures performed range from screening colonoscopy to more complex procedures, including endoscopic ultrasound to diagnose and stage gastrointestinal cancers (especially pancreatic cancer).

Bronchoscopy procedures are also performed. This procedure is used to examine the inside of the airways to detect abnormalities such as foreign bodies, bleeding, tumors, or inflammation.
