Laparoscopic Surgery

St. Vincent’s surgeons perform laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgery, to treat several conditions. This surgical option is usually results in less blood loss and postoperative pain, fewer and smaller scars, a shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery. Our surgeons make small incisions in the surgical area, which allows for the insertion of a fiber optic video camera and specially designed surgical instruments to view and perform the procedure. Your surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for this surgery.
