During open surgery, we make a large cut to access an area of the body. We look inside to determine the problem, address it, and close the incision with stitches, staples, or adhesives.

With this approach, we make a few very small cuts and use a special camera and sophisticated tools to fix problems inside your body. Minimally invasive surgery can also be called laparoscopic surgery or interventional surgery.
