Minimally invasive surgical options
When using minimally invasive surgical techniques, surgeons can perform procedures using much smaller incisions than with traditional surgery. During minimally invasive surgical procedures, surgeons use a small camera and thin instruments to assist in the operation.
Many minimally invasive procedures are also offered as same-day surgical procedures, meaning patients are discharged the same day so there is no overnight hospital stay.
