Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is the preferred surgical approach for many conditions. Unlike open surgery, which usually requires a long incision, minimally invasive procedures are much less complicated and are performed through one or more dime sized incisions, with much less trauma to the body. The number of incisions depends on the surgery, but the goal is to use fewer and smaller incisions.

Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic HysterectomyAlthough laparoscopic techniques vary, this less invasive type of surgery usually involves a surgeon inserting an endoscope, a long thin tube with a lighted camera at its tip, through a small incision. The camera sends a two-dimensional image of the surgical site to a high-definition monitor, which the surgeon watches during the operation.
