Minimally Invasive Surgery

Home / Our Services / Surgical Services / Minimally Invasive Surgery

At Vidant North Hospital, we are committed to the health of the community and a minimally invasive surgical procedure can sometimes be the best option.

Minimally invasive surgery, also known as “key hole” surgery, consists of procedures that are performed through small “holes” or incisions using a specialized instrument or endoscope. Our skilled surgeons have completed advanced laparoscopy training and are experienced in the techniques required by their surgical specialties.

Surgeons and patients are selecting and opting for more minimally invasive surgeries for a variety of procedures because of the many benefits of minimally invasive surgeries, including:

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery time
  • Better overall outcome
