Minimally Invasive Surgery - Virtua Service

Advanced Surgery Provides Lower Risks and Shorter Recovery Times

Every day, advances in technology improve the way Virtua is able to care for patients. Virtua surgeons perform a number of minimally invasive procedures across a range of specialties using laparoscopic and robotic-assisted technology. Using a minimally invasive approach reduces the impact on the body and provides a faster recovery time. 

During minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon makes 1-inch or smaller incisions, which are used to insert tiny surgical tools and a specialized camera. These tools enable the surgeon to perform the procedure without making a larger incision as in traditional "open" surgery, which then reduces trauma to other tissues. Benefits of minimally invasive surgery can include a lower risk of infection, less pain and scarring and a quicker return to your normal activities.

Virtua’s board-certified surgeons perform thousands of minimally invasive surgeries every year, including:
