Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery involves the use of sophisticated instruments and techniques to perform both simple and complex operations within the abdomen. For most patients, laparoscopic surgery utilizes “band-aid” incisions which may result in less pain and a more rapid recovery after surgery. Our surgeons have expertise in performing complex abdominal operations using laparoscopic approaches.

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is a form of surgery that is less invasive than open surgery, by which a patient typically requires only a "band-aid" incision. The potential benefits are limited scarring and less recovery time.
