Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery - Virtua Service

Small Cuts, Quicker Recovery

Today, many surgeries make less of an impact on the body and require less recuperation time than operations did in the past. Virtua surgeons provide a number of minimally invasive procedures using laparoscopic and robotic-assisted technology across a range of specialties.

During minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon makes small incisions—usually 1 to 3 inches in length or less—then inserts tiny surgical tools and a specialized camera into your body.

Your surgeon can see inside your body and perform the operation without needing to make a larger incision as in a traditional “open” surgery. This causes less trauma to other tissues. Benefits can include a lower risk of infection and pain and a quicker return to your normal activities.

Virtua’s board-certified surgeons perform thousands of minimally invasive surgeries every year, including: knee and hip replacement, rotator cuff repair, gall bladder removal, hernia repair, bariatric or “weight loss” surgery, hysterectomy, thyroid surgery, spine surgery, prostate surgery and ENT procedures.
