Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at EMCH
Unlike traditional surgery, minimally invasive procedures involve no large incisions. Instead, extremely small incisions are made – only large enough for the insertion of miniscule cameras equipped with microscopes and tiny fiber-optic flashlights.
Surgeons use this micro-technology to view the inside of your body on a high-definition monitor. After the procedure, it takes only a stitch or two to close up each of the incisions.
Many minimally invasive surgeries are performed with surgical robots, giving surgeons extremely precise access to the surgical site. Among the benefits are better, faster and easier recoveries from difficult procedures.
