Our Approach to TreatmentHouston Methodist surgeons have undergone extensive specialized training in minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures to become experts in the field and achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Benefits of these less invasive laparoscopic procedures, which involve small incisions and surgical tools less than half the size of conventional ones, include:
- Less pain and blood loss
- Faster recovery and shorter hospital stays
- Fewer complication risks — the skin is the body’s infection barrier. The bigger the incision, the increased likelihood for infection
- Little or no scarring
Laparoscopic surgery is among the most commonly used minimally invasive surgeries.
Surgeons insert special tools and miniature cameras in small incisions. They then manipulate those instruments as they watch a magnified view of the surgical field on a monitor.
