Surgery can be performed with open (traditional) or minimally invasive techniques.

Open Surgery

  • The incision made in the midline from below the breastbone to belly button or beyond.

Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic) Surgery

  • Performed through a number of small incisions using a long, thin scope (camera) and instruments

More than 95 percent of our surgeries are performed this way.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

  • Less skin and soft tissue trauma
  • Shorter, less painful recovery
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer infections and hernias
  • Incisional problems tend to be minor
