Minimally Invasive Surgery
Also known as laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive surgery is one of our particular
strengths. Performed through incisions no larger
than half an inch, surgeons use tiny fiber
optic cameras and specially-designed surgical instruments to perform procedures.
This allows for much less blood loss, less postoperative
discomfort, fewer and smaller scars, quicker recovery times, and typically shorter
hospital stays… meaning patients return to their daily routines and full
in much less time.
Abington also features the latest in minimally
invasive robotic surgery. The
da Vinci® S Surgical System is
a phenomenal technology that gives surgeons great precision, flexibility and
control by providing a magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site.
Our surgical staff provides minimally invasive
procedures across many services, including:
