ABDOMINAL Minimally Invasive Surgery
Years ago, open abdominal surgery was performed by making large incisions that often led to lengthy recovery times and significant scarring. Now Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is used for many different abdominal procedures in less time, with far less complications.
Minimally Invasive Abdominal Surgery Advance Techniques
At the Minimally Invasive Center of Hudson Valley Surgical Group, they have redefined abdominal surgery with the advancement of MIS, robotic and laparoscopic technologies. With over 30+ years of traditional open surgery combined with the newest and best technical tool selection, they are able to proceed with custom surgical solutions that benefit their patients best. General abdominal surgery is now done through a series of small incisions to the abdominal wall (less than 1/2 inch long) instead of traditional open surgery which can require incisions 12-24 inches long. MIS, da Vinci robot and laparoscopic instruments allow the surgeons user enhanced visibility and lighting to the abdominal area thus offering increased accuracy and effectiveness. The most common abdominal MIS procedures include gallbladder, colon, stomach surgery, appendectomy, anti-reflux surgery, and Upper GI endoscopy.
