Minimally Invasive Or Laparoscopic/Robotic Surgery Options

In a laparoscopic procedure, our surgeon uses several small incisions instead of one open incision. Through one of the incisions, Dr. Shapiro inserts a laparoscope, which is a miniature camera that displays the images on to a large monitor allowing us to see inside your body without having to make a larger incision.

The advantages of state-of-the-art laparoscopic and Robotic surgical technology include:

  • Faster Recovery

  • Less Post-Operative Pain

  • Less Post-Operative Discomfort

  • Decreased Scarring

  • Fewer Disruptions to Your Life

At Advanced Surgical Physicians, we discuss all options with you so you can choose the best surgical approach for your case.
