Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery

At LifeBridge Health, surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures for a wide range of conditions including, among others:

With minimally invasive surgery, doctors are able to accomplish the same goals as they would with traditional open surgery, only without having to make large incisions. As a result, patients experience less pain and blood loss, fewer complications and a faster recovery. This method can be particularly beneficial to many elderly patients or those with chronic medical conditions. In some cases, minimally invasive procedures can also be used as a diagnostic tool to discover the cause of abdominal pain.

Robotic Surgery

Surgeons at Sinai and Northwest hospitals perform robotic procedures using the advanced da Vinci® Surgical System.
