Minimally Invasive and Laparoscopic Surgery
Surgeons at AHH are recognized for performing and developing sophisticated minimally invasive surgical techniques that are revolutionizing surgery. To best meet the varied surgical needs of patients, they can perform minimally invasive procedures in a range of treatment areas including hepatobiliary, urology, colorectal, neurosurgery, thoracic, vascular, ear, nose and throat, orthopedics and OB/GYN.
When traditional surgery was used in the past, patients spent several days in the hospital with weeks of recovery and large scars. Minimally invasive procedures enable surgeons to operate through small, pencil-sized incisions using lasers, laparoscopes or endoscopes (thin, lighted tubes) so patients experience fewer complications, smaller scars, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.
