Smaller incisions, less discomfort, less blood loss and shorter recoveries. The benefits of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery are clear. Patients experience minimal scarring and are back to their normal activities faster.
Every day, skilled surgeons from many specialties at The Miriam Hospital perform minimally invasive procedures using the most sophisticated technology, including robotics and computer navigation.
In our state-of-the art operating rooms, The Miriam's minimally invasive surgery team offers a variety of procedures:
Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery
Colon and Rectal Surgery (performed with robotic technology when appropriate)
Gastrointestinal and General Surgery
Orthopedic surgery (performed with computer navigation technology)

The minimally invasive surgery program is directed by Siva Vithiananthan, MD. To learn more about why smaller is better, call 401-793-4545.
