14. What is minimally invasive surgery?
This is surgery performed through a series of tiny incisions (laparoscopy) instead of classic large incisions. We use advanced laparoscopy and/or the da Vinci Robot to perform the vast majority of our surgeries. This means patients can have major surgery such as a hysterectomy and go home the same day or the next morning with minimal post operative discomfort.

We encourage follow up visits to discuss certain types of tests. We will always contact you immediately in the event of abnormal test results.
