Minimally Invasive Surgery

As part of the Precision Surgery program at Blanchard Valley Hospital, our skilled surgeons provide comprehensive, minimally invasive surgery with advanced medical technologies. Our surgeons use small incisions, needles or lasers to make a big difference in our patients’ lives. A range of minimally invasive procedures are available in specialties including ear, nose and throat; gastrointestinal; general surgery; gynecological; interventional radiology; neurosurgery; orthopedics; radiology; robotic-assisted; spine; thoracic; urology; and vascular.

Tiny Incisions, Needles and Lasers Mean Big Results

Unlike open surgery that uses long incisions, minimally invasive surgery is performed by using a few small incisions, needles or lasers. Specially designed instruments and cameras allow our surgeons to operate from outside the body by skillfully manipulating the equipment inside the patient. In many cases, our surgeons prefer minimally invasive surgery to open surgery because it can be easier on your body, minimize blood loss and scarring, and have lower risk of infection after surgery.
