Minimally Invasive Procedures

Combining technology with skill and experience

Our surgeons have been performing and refining minimally invasive surgery since the early 1980s. They were among the first members of the international Minimally Invasive Robotic Association. Through minimally invasive robotic and endoscopic technology, our physicians have learned advanced techniques to improve patient care and outcomes.

Endoscopic procedures

Traditional surgery usually requires invasive procedures through large incisions, followed by a longer stay in the hospital. Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic or endoscopic surgery, is possible thanks to advancements in engineering and computer technology.

Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery uses a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instruments that are inserted through very small incisions. The result is less pain, shorter hospitalization, faster recovery and smaller scars.

Robotic procedures

The latest robotic technology allows our surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures more efficiently and precisely than ever before.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides 3D imaging for a more accurate view of internal organs. The system also provides greater flexibility, helping surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures instead of complex ones.

Novalis TXTM image-guided radiosurgery combines a powerful linear accelerator with advanced image guidance and motion management tools. Doctors can quickly perform precise, noninvasive procedures. Patients receive fast, accurate, nonsurgical treatments for cancer and other conditions in the brain, head, neck and body.
