Laparoscopic (Minimally Invasive) Surgery at Florida Medical Clinic
Laparoscopic surgery – also known as minimally invasive surgery – is one of the most notable advancements in modern surgical treatment. Many different types of surgery can be performed laparoscopically, helping patients recover faster and with less pain than usually follows traditional surgery. At Florida Medical Clinic, we perform minimally invasive surgery whenever it is most appropriate for our patients, providing them with a number of potential advantages over traditional operations.
Florida Medical Clinic’s Department of Surgery offers laparoscopic versions of the following procedures (as well as traditional versions when indicated by the patient’s particular needs):
- Gallbladder surgeries
- Hysterectomies and other gynecological procedures
- Hernia surgeries
- Discectomies, laminectomies, and other spine surgeries
- Thoracic surgeries
- Knee, hip, and elbow replacements
- Tumor resections
- Ear, nose, and throat procedures
- Gallstone removal surgeries (cholecystectomies)
- Kidney surgeries
Working one-on-one with each patient to help them select the most appropriate treatment for their needs, our surgeons will provide a variety of recommendations and explain the benefits of each. When it comes to laparoscopic surgery, many patients experience less scarring, a lower risk of infection, less blood loss, and a shorter hospital stay as compared to traditional procedures. At the same time, not every individual is an ideal candidate for minimally invasive surgery, and our surgeons may recommend a conventional operation when it is truly the most promising option.
