We do more minimally invasive procedures on children for a broader range of conditions than any hospital in the region. Options include laparoscopic surgery, robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery and thoracoscopy. In these procedures, the surgeon:
- Makes smaller cuts
- Inserts thin tubes with a small camera and tools into your child’s body
- Controls surgical tools from outside your child’s body while watching on a video screen
After this type of surgery, your child is likely to heal faster with less pain and go home from the hospital sooner compared to traditional surgery. Read more about Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery (PDF) (Spanish).
