What is a minimally invasive procedure?
“Minimally invasive” is an umbrella term for any type of surgery that is less invasive than traditional open surgery. Generally, surgeons performing minimally invasive procedures use smaller incisions and laparoscopic instruments. Often, your hospital stay and recovery time are shorter. At MedStar Franklin Square, we offer three different types of minimally invasive surgery:
- Laparoscopic surgery. The surgeon uses small, thin instruments and a video camera to enhance the visual field.
- Robotic surgery. The surgeon places tiny robotic instruments into your body and controls the robot’s movement from a nearby console. The robot is able to access hard-to-reach areas of your body and has greater dexterity than a human.
- GYN/Pelvic surgery. For certain procedures, such as a hysterectomy, surgeons can often remove the uterus through the vagina.
Our surgeons are experts in these advanced procedures, so we are able to choose the right surgery for you, based on your condition and needs.
