Minimally Invasive Surgery
The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine boasts some of the top surgeons in Nevada, offering a broad range of surgery procedures, including minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is an advanced technique that enables patients to experience faster recoveries and less scarring than what is entailed during traditional invasive procedures.
In minimally invasive procedures, an extremely small incision is made, only large enough for the insertion of miniscule cameras equipped with microscopes and tiny fiber-optic flashlights. Many minimally invasive procedures can even be done as out-patient, requiring no hospital stay at all. Compared to traditional "open" surgery, the benefits of minimally invasive surgery typically include:
- A faster recovery for the patient
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Lower total cost of care to both the patient and insurance plan
Minimally invasive surgery procedures are performed by highly skilled, board-certified, surgeons with the School of Medicine. Minimally invasive surgery techniques can be used on a wide-range of procedures from weight-loss to removing tumors. Most doctors will try to use minimally invasive techniques when at all possible because of the benefits for the patient.
