Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is an effective surgical method that is less intrusive than traditional surgery. By using small incisions and instruments, we are able to create positive surgical outcomes that typically have minimal scarring, faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays.

Minimally invasive surgery on Florida's Treasure Coast

When you need surgery, you want to know you are receiving care from a team prioritizing your health and safety.

HCA Florida Lawnwood Hospital is committed to helping you get back to your daily activities as quickly as possible, which is why we offer surgical options with faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays. Minimally invasive robotic surgery involves technology granting your surgeon the ability to operate with greater precision and control. It also provides a greater range of motion in hard-to-reach areas. With this advanced technology, we can perform a range of procedures with minimally invasive techniques.

Understanding robotic surgery

Robotic surgery enables greater visualization and extreme precision. Much like we rely on GPS to help us get to a destination, robot-assisted procedures allow surgeons to map our precise positioning for each procedure. Our technology translates your surgeon's hand motions into smaller, more precise movements, and they use a laparoscope (camera-equipped guide) to track all movements through a video monitor. Your surgeon is in complete control of the instruments throughout the duration of your procedure. Ask your doctor if physician-guided surgery is right for you.
