Our Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery Services
As opposed to traditional open surgery, which involves a larger incision, minimally invasive procedures involve small incisions through which a tube is inserted that guides a camera and specialized tools to the surgical site. These minimally invasive techniques offer less pain and scarring, lower complication and infection rates, and faster recoveries for patients.
Robotic procedures use an advanced technology that allows for greater precision and better visualization of hard-to-reach areas of the anatomy.
Our surgical specialists take the time to educate our patients about the best surgical options for them; address any questions; and fully explain what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Mount Sinai Brooklyn surgeons are skilled in performing laparoscopic and robotic procedures in a range of areas, including the following:
- Bariatric/weight-loss surgery
- Colon and rectal surgery
- Gastric and small bowel surgery
- General surgery, such as hernias and gall bladders
- Gynecologic procedures
- Thoracic surgery
- Urologic procedures, such as prostatectomy and nephrectomy
As part of the Mount Sinai Health System, Mount Sinai Brooklyn surgeons are proud to bring the latest advances in surgical care to our local community.
