Less Invasive Surgery
Whenever possible, your surgeon will perform a laparoscopic surgery using a small incision (cut) instead of traditional, open surgery. You’ll benefit from a less invasive procedure because you may have less pain, recover faster, and go home quicker. Ask your surgeon if you’ll have this type of surgery.
Robotic & Advanced Surgical Technology
Count on the Wayne UNC Surgery Center for up-to-date, hi-tech surgery equipment to provide you with precise, accurate surgeries. Our technology includes:
- da Vinci Xi Surgery System – A robotic-assisted surgery tool some surgeons use for minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries (hysterectomy, removal of fibroid tumors, and repair of pelvic prolapse) and general surgeries (hernia repair and esophageal reflux) at Wayne UNC. Your surgeon controls the robot and it provides him or her high-definition vision capabilities and exact movements during your surgery. You will have smaller incisions and may experience less pain and scarring, and faster recovery.
- Hybrid operating room – New, modern room with advanced surgical and high-quality imaging technology so your surgeon can perform a minimally invasive vascular surgery, and if you need additional care, your surgeon can complete both procedures. That means you’ll stay in one room, have safer care, a less invasive treatment, and a quicker recovery.
If your doctor recommends surgery, you may feel anxious. It’s natural to have some unease before surgery. Trust your team to address your concerns, explain what they’re doing, and answer your questions.
