Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is a specialty of the skilled surgeons at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery. This type of surgery involves a variety of techniques to address disease and underlying health conditions without the risk for common complications associated with traditional open surgery.

Minimally invasive techniques require only small incisions and specialized surgical instruments that fit through them to reach the surgical site. The surgeon can view the treatment area on an external monitor, which receives real-time images from a tiny camera attached to the instruments.

What types of minimally invasive surgery are available?

The Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery offers the most advanced minimally invasive surgery techniques, including laparoscopy and robotic surgery.

Laparoscopy uses a slender instrument, known as a laparoscope, with an attached camera that goes into one of the incisions while your surgeon inserts surgical instruments through another small incision. Viewing the external monitor, your surgeon completes the procedure without needing to make large, open incisions.

In robotic surgery, the CMIRS surgical team relies on the advanced technology of the da Vinci system. This type of surgery involves a specialized console that your surgeon uses to control the precise surgical instruments.

The camera used in robotic surgery provides high-definition 3D images and offers a magnified view of the surgical site. The computer-assisted console allows your surgeon to perform even the most complex surgical repairs with a level of precision not possible in open surgery.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

The surgeons at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery can address a variety of medical issues using minimally invasive surgery, including:

  • Appendectomy
  • Colon surgery
  • Hernia repair
  • Gallbladder surgery

By using the specialized equipment and only small incisions, minimally invasive surgery reduces your risk for surgical complications common with open surgery, such as infection and scarring.

You can also expect to heal much faster from minimally invasive techniques since the incisions are so small. This means your stay in the hospital is much shorter, or you may even be able to undergo surgery on an outpatient basis.

With less trauma to your body, your recovery time is shorter, allowing you to get back to your usual activities without an extended period of downtime.
