Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is surgery done with the aid of a viewing scope, and specially designed surgical instruments. The scope allows the surgeon to perform major surgery through several tiny openings without the need of a large incision. Surgical Associates of Palm Beach County / Boca Care is committed to providing their patients with state of the art excellence in their surgical options. Technology and the superior clinical training and skills allow our surgeons to offer Minimally invasive surgery as an option for our patients.

There are many advantages for the patient who chooses to have laparoscopic surgery. Minimally invasive surgery results in reduced trauma to muscular tissues, less scarring and less postoperative pain. Because no major muscle groups are cut, postoperative breathing, coughing and walking are easier. By reducing the need for pain medication there is less unsteadiness, drowsiness and fatigue sometimes associated with strong analgesics. Overall recovery time is faster and patients return to normal activities and/or work sooner compared to traditional (open) surgery.

Our patient outcomes demonstrate the benefits of utilizing this minimally invasive surgical method when it is an indicated surgical option. Surgical Associates of Palm Beach County / Boca Care is committed to remaining at the forefront of all surgical advancement and our centers of excellence offer truly state of the art surgical care.
