Least Invasive Care

Your surgeon will use the least invasive approach—meaning the smallest size and number of incisions. That helps you recover sooner, with less pain and scarring.

In some cases, your surgeon may even use a surgical robot with arms that bend and rotate farther than human hands. That makes it possible to perform some procedures in a less invasive way.
