Minimally invasive surgery

Our doctors are skilled in performing minimally invasive surgeries. These types of surgeries involve smaller incisions and less overall damage to the tissue surrounding the area of your surgery. Some examples of minimally invasive procedures include laparoscopies and robot-assisted surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery is also a great alternative to traditional or "open" surgeries because it allows for:

  • Faster recovery times
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine after surgery
  • Less scarring
  • Less trauma to the surrounding tissues and structures
  • Reduced pain
  • Shorter hospital stays

If you need access to other types of surgery, we make it convenient through our HCA Florida Healthcare family of hospitals across the state.

Recovering from surgery

After surgery, your doctor will provide instructions on diet, medications, rest and postoperative visits. Our team members will provide you with a written summary of these instructions.
