Minimally Invasive Surgery
Less Cutting = Less Pain and Quicker Recovery
Minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic surgery) provides less trauma to the body, resulting in shorter hospital stays for the patient.
These types of surgeries utilize much smaller incisions compared to open surgeries; requiring only a few stitches to close. Since there is less cutting, the body is able to heal much faster. Many minimally invasive surgeries are performed on outpatients (go home the same day). Minimally invasive surgery can also be utilized on inpatients (stay in the hospital).
