Types of Surgery
In addition to traditional or open surgery, surgeons at LWRMC have special expertise in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgical techniques often enable patients to leave the hospital with smaller scars and a faster recovery compared to traditional procedures. Other advantages include greater surgical precision, fewer complications, reduced pain and discomfort, less trauma, less blood loss, reduced risk of infection, smaller incisions and shorter hospital stays.*
Minimally invasive surgical techniques can be utilized for a wide array of surgical procedures. Talk to your physician to see what options may be available to you.
In addition to traditional open surgery, when appropriate, patients at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center having surgery for a gynecologic, urologic, colorectal or other medical condition, may have the option for minimally invasive, advanced robotic surgery using the da Vinci® Xi surgical system.
Advantages of robotic surgery may include:*
- Reduced pain and trauma to the body
- Less blood loss
- Decreased risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time
- Less scarring
*Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if minimally invasive or robotic surgery are right for you.
