Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery
The general surgeons at Virginia Mason are trained to perform a wide variety of surgical procedures, most often using minimally-invasive techniques, including advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery. Minimally-invasive surgery allows surgeons to perform procedures that would otherwise require longer, more complicated recovery.
Benefits of minimally-invasive surgery include:
- Reduced pain
- Fewer complications
- Shorter recovery times
About Our Services
The Department of General Surgery is well equipped to handle day-to-day routine surgical procedures and provide surgical treatment for health conditions ranging from simple hernias, appendicitis to more complicated, challenging and life-threatening diseases of chest, neck, abdomen, liver, stomach and intestines. Several surgical procedures are usually performed on a short-term admission thus improving the recovery period and paying a way for quick discharge. In day care procedures patients return home on the same day following the recovery period. A multidisciplinary and collaborative treatment approach is adopted to offer quality care to the patients suffering from complicated diseases.
