Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgeries

Lewis G. Dickinson, MD, and Steven A. Matzinger, MD, PhD, perform minimally invasive and robotic surgery – the least invasive surgical treatments available. These types of surgeries provide an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. Robotic-assisted surgery enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery:

  • Reduced trauma to the body
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Less post-operative medication
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and quicker return to normal activities
  • Less scarring
