Hundreds of colorectal surgeries and procedures are performed each year at the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery.
Minimally invasive, or laparoscopic surgery, is a technique that utilizes a few, very small incisions, through which a small camera and instruments are inserted to perform the surgery.
Another form of minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery, which provides far greater precision, flexibility and control than a human hand.
There are many benefits to minimally invasive surgery such as: less pain, reduced risk of infection and generally shorter recovery time than a traditional open surgery.
While many surgeries are performed laparoscopically, an open surgery may be the preferred option- depending on the unique factors of the condition.
Our team is highly specialized in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions including:
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis
