Overview

Minimally Invasive Surgery

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, it is important to review all medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

At Lee Memorial Health System, we use a state-of-the-art robotic platform called the da Vinci® Surgical System, which enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. The da Vinci® provides an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy.


Key Facts

Compared to traditional open surgeries, the benefits of da Vinci® surgery can include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes

As with any surgery, benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
