Minimally Invasive Surgery

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 completely changes the way doctors approach patient care.

Physicians at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center are recognized for their expertise in performing and developing sophisticated minimally invasive techniques. Previously, having surgery meant 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 the latest technology, surgeons make small, pencil-sized holes in the body while video equipment provides a magnified view of the surgical site. Instruments perform the surgery through the incisions so patients experience smaller scars and faster recoveries. Minimally invasive procedures offer many options for both the physician and the patient. Minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic approach) is offered for the appendix, gallbladder, intestine, endometrium and other organs. Compared with traditional surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery 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
  • Faster recoveries

Spine Surgery

Comprehensive care and advanced treatments for patients with spinal conditions are offered at The Orthopaedic Spine and Joint Center at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. Different approaches and surgical techniques can be performed in spinal conditions. The type of surgery performed is based on the physical findings at examination, the response to therapy, length of symptoms, results of imaging studies and response to diagnostic testing. The surgeon will assess which option will be best for your particular circumstance and discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with you.

In addition to performing spine and back surgery, orthopaedic techniques are available to help patients who suffer from knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and other joint-related injuries find relief.
