Minimally Invasive Surgery*
Many procedures at Centennial Hills Hospital can be done with tiny incisions. This is known as minimally invasive surgery. This approach can offer many benefits, including:
- Smaller scars
- Less time in the hospital
- Less postoperative pain
- Faster recovery and return to work and daily activities
Instead of large incisions, surgeons make small, pencil-sized holes in the body. They then use tiny instruments to perform surgery through the incisions. During the procedure, video equipment creates a magnified view of the surgical site.
Our surgical suites are equipped for minimally invasive surgery and traditional surgery.
Robotic surgery is one of the types of minimally invasive surgery. It can help surgeons perform complex procedures with more precision. For patients, this can offer further benefits. For instance, patients may experience a shorter time in the hospital and quicker recovery. This can mean a faster return to work, hobbies and daily activities.
It’s important to know that the surgeon, not the robot, is in control. The surgeon performs procedures using small tools attached to a robotic arm. He or she uses a computer to guide the robot. A special camera provides better magnification. Also, advanced tools allow doctors to work through small incisions.
The robot matches the doctor’s hand movements during the procedure. However, it has greater range of motion than the human hand. This can allow for more flexibility and control.
Robotic Surgery with da Vinci®
Robotic surgery is offered at Centennial Hills Hospital using the da Vinci® Surgical System. Surgeons use this system for gynecologic procedures, prostate surgery, kidney surgery and other procedures.
Robotic Technology for Spine Surgery
Special robotic technology is also offered at Centennial Hills Hospital for spine surgery. This system is called the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform. Surgeons use it to treat disc problems, scoliosis, spinal fractures and other conditions.
Robotics for Hips and Knees
A robotic system called Mako® is used at Centennial Hills Hospital for hip and knee replacement procedures. This can help to carefully position implants for each patient.
*Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery or minimally invasive surgery is right for you.
More Advanced Technologies to Support Better Patient Care
Centennial Hills Hospital continues to bring advanced technologies to the community. This can help support better care and a better patient experience.
For example, we were the first hospital in Nevada to acquire an advanced O-arm® imaging system. This technology is used primarily for spine, neurological and orthopedic surgeries. It can help verify the precise location of spinal and other hardware implants. This can help surgeons provide care that is customized to each patient.
Centennial Hills Hospital is also the first acute care hospital in Las Vegas to offer iovera° treatment for knee surgery. This is used for pain relief. It can help patients feel more comfortable during their recovery – and it does not use opioids. Controlling pain can help patients focus on therapy and get back to what they enjoy.
Centennial Hills Hospital offers surgical care in many areas, including the following:
Heart and vascular surgery is performed at Centennial Hills Hospital using minimally invasive approaches. These include treatments for heart rhythm disorders, heart failure, vascular disorders and coronary artery disease.
