Minimally Invasive Surgery
In addition to standard open surgery, surgeons at Henderson Hospital have special expertise in laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery, in which the surgeon uses tiny incisions rather than one long incision. This type of surgery may lead to faster healing and less scarring, and can be used in many situations and procedures. Using advanced technology, surgeons make small pencil-sized holes in the body while video equipment is used to provide a magnified view of the surgical site. Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions; this usually results in smaller scars, less time in the hospital and a faster recovery and return to work and daily activities. Many types of procedures (orthopedic, gynecologic, urologic and others) may be performed using minimally invasive techniques. Talk to your doctor about whether this type of surgery is right for your particular diagnosis and situation.
