Minimally invasive surgery

Many of our surgeries use minimally invasive techniques. In these procedures, surgeons use smaller instruments than in traditional open surgeries. That means smaller incisions and less scarring. And it can lead to:

  • Less blood loss during surgery
  • Less postoperative pain and discomfort
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • A quicker recovery
