Surgery

Surgery is a branch of medicine that involves treating diseases or injuries by adjusting or removing organs, tissues or bones. Surgery includes both necessary procedures, like cardiac surgery, or elective procedures, such as joint replacement.

Minimally invasive surgery

When using minimally invasive surgical techniques, our surgeons can perform procedures using much smaller incisions than with traditional surgery. They do this by using a small camera and thin, specialized surgical instruments to assist in the operation.

Minimally invasive surgery offers patients a number of benefits when compared to traditional surgical methods, such as:

  • Fewer complications
  • Less harm to surrounding tissue
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery time

Robot-assisted surgery

One option we offer for minimally invasive surgery is advanced robot-assisted surgery. Robotic surgery is performed by our highly experienced, specially trained surgeons who use a system of advanced computer and robotic technologies.

During the procedure, your surgeon is completely in control of the robot. Through a high-tech control module, surgeons move small operating instruments that allow for extremely precise movements. The surgeon operates from a console just a few feet away from the operating table, and their hand movements translate to the robotic technology.
