Minimally Invasive Surgery
Advancements in technology have allowed for many surgical procedures to be performed with less injury to the body. Minimally invasive surgery is typically safer than open surgery and allows for a quicker recovery with less pain.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is done by creating small incisions and inserting a camera and small instruments into the body to perform the procedure.
Robotic surgery is another minimally invasive approach to surgery. Our surgeons are specially trained in using the robotic system to assist them in performing surgical procedures. High-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and more precise movements of tiny instruments benefit our patients with lower pain, shorter hospital stays, and a faster recovery.

- Anti-reflux Surgery
- Hernia Repair
- Appendectomy (appendix removal)
