Surgery: Minimally Invasive
Convenience: in retail, customers are won with the promise of it; in business, partnerships are formed on the basis of it; and in health care, lives are made better, sooner, because of it. When patients are faced with the inevitability of surgery, one of the first questions they ask is how long the recovery times are. At UC Davis Health System, recovery times can be shorter because we offer more minimally invasive options.
It's important to know that there are alternatives to most conventional surgeries. Our surgeons are committed to helping our patients find the very best option for them. Here, we use robotic-assisted techniques and flexible laparoscopic devices to perform major surgery through a few small incisions. These innovative techniques are used for a broad range of surgeries including cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, urologic, and more.
With minimally invasive surgical techniques, there's a lower risk of infection, less pain and scarring, and patients can go home sooner and recover faster. That's a convenience any patient can look forward to.
