Northern Westchester surgeons offer expertise in minimally invasive surgery, including robot-assisted surgery to treat urological conditions such as:
Prostate surgeons, gallbladder surgeons, colorectal surgeons, gynecologic surgeons and thoracic surgeons at Northern Westchester Hospital, New York, routinely perform minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries for the treatment of benign tumors, malignant tumors, and benign conditions of the gallbladder such as from blockage, inflammation or infection.
Minimally invasive surgery techniques include laparoscopy, in which a tiny lighted camera and thin instruments are used in the surgery, requiring smaller incisions at the surgery site than "open" surgery. Even more minimally invasive is robot-assisted surgery. With the aid of the da Vinci Surgical System, the surgeon controls tiny robotic instruments through the smallest incisions, giving the surgeon greater precision, visualization and range of motion than open surgery.
