Minimally Invasive Surgery
Bringing the Most Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery to the Region
The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Monmouth Medical Center has
introduced to central New Jersey the most advanced, state-of-the-art laparoscopic
surgical procedures to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Minimally
invasive, or laparoscopic, surgery is performed through several tiny openings
with the aid of a viewing scope known as an endoscopic camera. Advantages
of the minimally invasive versus traditional approach to surgery include
less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries.
Additionally, because laparoscopic procedures use much smaller incisions,
scarring is minimalized. Also, the risk of wound infection or abdominal
hernia, which can result from larger incisions, is greatly reduced. The
center's highly skilled surgeons offer expertise in the laparoscopic
surgical treatment of severe heartburn, morbid obesity, hernias and diseases
of the intestine, kidneys, and adrenals.
Through the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Monmouth, these minimally
invasive approaches are accomplishing traditional surgical goals with
less pain, faster recovery and lower wound complication rates.
