Minimally invasive surgical techniques involve smaller incisions and utilize the most cutting-edge technology to achieve results (often superior) to what was in the past only possible through more invasive and disruptive means.
The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
- Decreased pain
- Reduced scarring
- Low risk of infection
- Less blood loss
- Short hospital stay
- Faster recovery and return to daily activities
The diseases affecting the upper GI tract differ significantly from conditions that impact the rest of the GI tract (such as the large intestine and rectum). The diagnosis, treatment, and management of these illnesses are complex given the spectrum of patient complaints can range from minor nuisance to chronic debilitating conditions.
Numerous studies have shown that surgeons who specialize in particular procedures attain the best results. Our surgical team specializes in minimally invasive and laparoscopic treatment for diseases of the esophagus and stomach and is often referred some of the most challenging and complex cases by their medical colleagues throughout central Florida.
The Orlando Minimally Invasive Surgery team is proud to offer our patients superior treatment and outcomes using small incisions and the most advanced techniques available in surgical care today without compromising patient safety.
