Minimally invasive surgery at Geisinger has reached phenomenal frontiers. In addition to using the latest in endoscopic and laparascopic technology, we have more surgeons performing more kinds of minimally invasive surgery than any other hospital in the region.
Our specialists are trained in the most sophisticated techniques, making only tiny incisions and using special surgical instruments. You benefit from less pain (or no pain) and scarring than with traditional “open” procedures (where major incisions are made). Your hospitalization will be shorter and you’ll be back to work and other activities faster.
If you are considering surgery, you’ll be glad to know all that Geisinger offers. Among the minimally invasive surgeries we perform are:
