Types of Surgery
In addition to traditional open surgery, surgeons at TMC have special expertise in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery.
Minimally Invasive Surgery*
Laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgical techniques often enable patients to leave the hospital with smaller scars and a faster recovery compared to traditional procedures. Other advantages can include greater surgical precision, fewer complications, reduced pain and discomfort, less trauma, less blood loss, reduced risk of infection, smaller incisions and shorter hospital stays.
Robotic surgery is a method in which the procedure is performed using small tools attached to a robotic arm, which the surgeon controls with a computer. Small incisions are made to insert the instruments into your body. Using a tube with a video camera attached, the surgeon can view 3-D images of the body during the procedure. The robot matches the doctor's hand movements. Robotic procedures may result in a faster recovery and less time in the hospital.
Surgeons at the TMC Center for Robotic Surgery were the first in the area to use the da Vinci® Si HD Surgical System. The hospital also has the da Vinci XI® Surgical System. Surgeons can perform robotic procedures in a number of specialties, including gynecology, general surgery and weight loss.
*Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery or minimally invasive surgery is right for you.
