Minimally Invasive Surgery at Pennsylvania Hospital

Dedicated teams at Pennsylvania Hospital, consisting of surgeons, nurses and technicians in various specialties, are trained in minimally invasive surgical techniques and procedures. Our physicians have in-depth expertise, treating patients using minimally invasive techniques on a daily basis. In addition, many of our surgeons lead the field in many different minimally invasive techniques including patellofemoral joint replacement, laparoscopic bariatric surgery, hernia repair and multiple cardiac surgeries.

Our surgeons also participate actively in national minimally invasive surgical organizations, keeping them at the forefront of developments in this emerging medical specialty.

Pennsylvania Hospital provides advanced minimally invasive surgical options in the following specialties:
