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.

Our minimally invasive treatments and services

With laparoscopy, robotics and other minimally invasive surgical techniques, we can provide you with effective surgical treatment that causes less disruption to your daily life.

Robotic surgery

Robot-assisted surgery is one of the most advanced minimally invasive surgical options available. Powered by robotic technology, your surgeon's hand movements are scaled, filtered and seamlessly translated into precise movements.

By enhancing visualization, control and dexterity, robotic surgery overcomes the limitations of traditional laparoscopic technology. The combination of technological advancements provided by robot-assisted surgery allows surgeons to operate through very small incisions with extreme precision.

Robot-assisted gynecologic surgery

We currently offer robotic surgery to treat gynecologic conditions, including:

  • Cancers of the uterus, cervix and ovaries
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian masses
  • Uterine fibroids

In some cases, a hysterectomy (the removal of some or all of a woman’s reproductive organs) may be the most effective treatment option. For patients needing this surgery, we are proud to offer robot-assisted procedures for both partial and total hysterectomies.

Advantages of minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery involves the use of tiny surgical instruments, a scope (or camera) and an enhanced view of the surgical site. This translates to increased precision for the surgeon as well as several benefits for you.

Patient benefits of minimally invasive surgery
