Minimally Invasive Surgery

Through advanced surgical techniques and equipment, more surgeries are being performed with minimally invasive methods. These procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. During a minimally invasive procedure, your surgeon makes several small incisions in the skin. A long, thin tube with a miniature camera attached at the end (called an endoscope) is passed through one of the incisions. Tubes attached to small instruments are passed through the other openings.

Minimally invasive procedures performed at Upper Valley Medical Center include:

  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy 
  • Myomectomy
  • Oophorectomy
  • Laparoscopic stomach surgery
  • Laparoscopic colon surgery
  • Lung biopsy and lung resection
  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy
  • Laparoscopic adrenalectomy
  • Laparoscopic appendectomy 
  • Laparoscopic hernia repair

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery are:

  • Less pain
  • Fewer side effects
  • Speedier recovery
  • Shorter time spent in the hospital
  • Quicker return to work and daily activities

Robot-Assisted Surgery

UVMC added the highly advanced da Vinci robotic surgery system in fall 2013. This system enables certain operations to be performed through one to two centimeter incisions. Compared to traditional open surgery, robotic surgery offers patients the following potential benefits:

  • Better clinical outcomes
  • Faster recovery
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Shorter hospital stay

UVMC offers robotic-assisted surgery for a variety of gynecologic conditions, including: endometriosis, uterine fibroids, falling uterus/ bladder and pelvic pain.
