Minimally Invasive Procedures

In the past, open surgery was the only option available to surgeons when they needed to see inside a patient's body or remove or repair an organ. But today, minimally invasive technology is completely changing the way doctors approach patient care.

Having surgery used to mean spending several days in a hospital and weeks in recovery, leaving you with lengthy scars. Today's new minimally invasive procedures have changed all that. Using advanced technology, surgeons make small pencil-sized holes in the body while video equipment is used to provide a magnified view of the surgical site. Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions so patients experience smaller scars and faster recoveries.

Minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures offer many options for both the physician and the patient. Compared with traditional surgery, MIS procedures offer the following advantages:

  • Smaller incisions resulting in reduced pain and discomfort
  • Minimal scarring
  • Greater surgical precision
  • Enhanced visualization of the surgical site
  • Less trauma
  • Fewer complications
  • Less blood loss and a decreased need for blood transfusions
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays

That's why, at Centennial Hills Hospital, we have surgical suites equipped for minimally invasive surgical procedures.
