Minimally Invasive Surgery
Greenwich Hospital surgeons and staff specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques for a wide range of procedures, across virtually all surgical disciplines. Surgeries that once required extensive hospital stays and long periods for recovery and recuperation are now routinely done with this less invasive approach, often on an outpatient basis.
Using laparoscopic technology, specialized equipment and, at times, robotic assistance, the surgeons at Greenwich Hospital make tiny, precise movements through very small incisions. These innovative techniques cause minimal trauma to the body and offer significant advantages to surgical patients including:
- Quicker recovery
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Less pain
- Faster return to normal activity
Greenwich Hospital is setting a new standard for minimally invasive surgical care using robotic assisted technology with the da Vinci Surgical System. Our surgeons use advanced robotic technology for urological and gynecological procedures.
