When medication, lifestyle changes and other nonsurgical treatments cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the accepted treatment for a broad range of conditions. Surgery can be a scary proposition for a patient, no matter how routine the procedure.

Types of surgeries performed at our Surgery Center include:

  • General Surgery
  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Gynecological Surgery
  • Gallbladder Surgery
  • Urological Surgery

While surgery is generally the most effective treatment option for a range of abdominal and other conditions, traditional open surgery with a large incision has its drawbacks — pain, trauma, long recovery time and risk of infection.

Fortunately, less-invasive options are available to many patients facing surgery. The most common of these is laparoscopic surgery, in which smaller incisions are used. While laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures, it has inherent limitations when more intricate and complex surgery is required.

A new category in minimally invasive surgery

Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, physicians now have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and laparoscopy that allows them to provide patients with the best of both approaches. With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can now operate using only 1-2 centimeter incisions, but with greater precision and control than ever before. Da Vinci can help surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
