Minimally Invasive Surgery
South Shore Hospital is committed to providing the most innovative minimally invasive surgical techniques and procedures, making surgery less demanding, more comfortable and often providing a swifter recovery time for each patient. Advances in technology have enabled our surgical team to treat a variety of conditions—from common hernia, gall bladder and appendix surgeries to more complex procedures involving the colon, liver, stomach, esophagus, bladder and reproductive organs—using the smallest of incisions.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
At South Shore Hospital, our surgeons can now correct many problems without requiring major surgery involving large incisions. The advantages of minimally invasive surgery vs. traditional surgery include:
- Less pain and scarring
- Fewer complications
- Reduced risk of herniation or wound separation
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activity
Specialized techniques such as miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber optic lights and high-definition monitors, as well as procedures with the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, can be performed both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
