Minimally Invasive Surgery Program

Our surgeons provide cutting edge surgical techniques for cancer patients as a part of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Program. Minimally invasive surgery provides an alternative to conventional surgery, utilizing smaller incisions, which usually leads to less postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.

We use minimally invasive surgery, otherwise known as laparoscopy, for many types of procedures, including:

  • Laparoscopic colectomy
  • Laparoscopic liver resection
  • Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
  • Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy
  • Laparoscopic splenectomy
  • Minimally invasive esophagectomy
  • Laparoscopic gastrostomy/jejunostomy tube placement
  • Laparoscopic gastrectomy
