Surgeons at Memorial use advanced minimally invasive and laparoscopic techniques in many surgical cases. Ask your surgeon about minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgical options.

For patients, minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery can minimize pain, reduce scarring, speed recovery and eliminate potential complications.  Minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery have become widely accepted in nearly all medical specialties, often replacing traditional, open surgery.
