Laparoscopic Surgeries

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as Minimally Invasive Surgery, is a surgery that is performed using small incisions. Once the incisions are made, tiny instruments and cameras can be advanced to allow the surgeon to see and perform the surgery in less time and with less pain and recovery.

Although Laparoscopic surgery has been performed for many years, MIMIT physicians are routinely introduced to new techniques. As technology improves, so does the need for advancement by our physicians.

Lapraroscopic procedures MIMIt surgeons perform:

Is important to note that sometimes it is not possible for the surgeon to use the laparoscopic technique because it may be difficult to see or handle the organs safely. The surgeon may decide to convert the laparoscopic surgery to an open procedure in certain situations and for patient safety. Though very infrequent, when conversion to an open technique occurs, it should not be considered a failure of the procedure. Our team will discuss this with you when you are evaluated and being considered for laparoscopic surgery.
