MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
In minimally invasive surgery, doctors use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery.
Minimally invasive procedures (using small incisions) may offer significant benefits as well:
- Less major bleeding
- Fewer post-op infections
- Fewer complications
- Shorter length of stay
- Quicker return to normal activities
- Quicker return to work
- Less scarring
- Comparable or lower cost
In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications.
Laproscopy surgery done through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and tiny cameras and surgical instruments — was one of the first types of minimally invasive surgery. Another type of minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery. It provides a magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site and helps the surgeon operate with precision, flexibility and control.

This techniques will benefit the candidate who are Severely obese (BMI of 35 or more) for more than five years. Nonsurgical serious weight-loss attempts unsuccessful. Willingness to make significant lifestyle changes.

The infusion center offers intravenous infusion services in the treament of cancer and blood related disease. Its services consist of chemotherapy infusion, blood and blood product transfusions, hydration, immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, and antibiotic and iron infusions.
The Infusion Therapy Center is dedicated to the care of patients with cancer and patients requiring supportive intravenous therapy. The most common services provided are chemotherapy administration, hydration, blood and blood product transfusions, Immunoglobulin therapy, iron and antibiotic infusions. For patient convenience and improved care the center is located right next to the Cancer and Blood Center, patient clinic. The Cancer and Blood Center is a comprehensive program dedicated to the research, diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer and blood related disorders. The center physicians are dedicated to providing exceptional service and are committed to bringing the latest technologies and advanced treatment options to our patients, as we hope to one day, stamp out cancer altogether.
Infusion therapy is a key component of any cancer treatment plan. At the Minimally Invasive Surgery Hopistal, we ensure comfort, consistency and continuity of care by taking an innovative approach to infusion therapy.
Endoscopy and Colonoscopy
An endoscopy is a procedure in which your doctor uses specialized instruments to view and operate on the internal organs and vessels of your body. It allows surgeons to view problems within your body without making large incisions.
Colonoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine camera.gif (rectum and colon). He or she uses a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon. A colonoscopy helps find ulcers, colon polyps, tumors, and areas of inflammation or bleeding. During a colonoscopy, tissue samples can be collected (biopsy) and abnormal growths can be taken out. Colonoscopy can also be used as a screening test to check for cancer or precancerous growths in the colon or rectum (polyps).
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure orthopaedic surgeons use to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint.
In an arthroscopic examination, an orthopaedic surgeon makes a small incision in the patient’s skin and then inserts pencil-sized instruments that contain a small lens and lighting system to magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint. Light is transmitted through fiber optics to the end of the arthroscope that is inserted into the joint.
By attaching the arthroscope to a miniature television camera, the surgeon is able to see the interior of the joint through this very small incision rather than a large incision needed for surgery.
Advanced robotic systems give doctors greater control and vision during surgery, allowing them to perform safe, less invasive, and precise surgical procedures.
During robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons operate from a console equipped with two master controllers that maneuver four robotic arms. By viewing a high-definition 3-D image on the console, the surgeon is able to see the surgical procedure better than ever before. Computer software takes the place of actual hand movements and can make movements very precise.
