Minimally invasive approach

Recognized nationally for their pioneering work, our surgeons use advanced technologies to perform highly precise, minimally invasive surgery. Benefits of this approach include:

  • Less postoperative pain
  • A lower risk of infection
  • Minimal scarring
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Improved recovery times
  • Earlier discharge from hospital

Specifically, our surgical staff has expertise in minimally invasive robotic surgical treatments, which we use for prostate, kidney, colon, esophageal, liver, pancreas, cervical, lung and thoracic cancers. We were among the first in the Northeast to offer robotic hysterectomy and myomectomy.

Other minimally invasive approaches we use include:

  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
  • Minimally invasive endoscopy surgery
  • NanoKnife
