Minimally Invasive Surgery at the Videoscopic Surgery Center

Pennsylvania Hospital physicians are at the forefront of minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical techniques that are less traumatic for patients. They are leaders in videoscopic techniques including endoscopy and laparoscopy which rely on the use of small fiberoptic cameras attached to thin, flexible tubes to generate images from inside the body onto a television monitor. Most patients who have minimally invasive surgery are able to return home within 24 hours.

General surgery procedures offered at the hospital's Videoscopic Surgery Center include gallbladder removal, hernia repair, esophageal surgery, hiatal hernia repair, spleenectomy, appendix removal, colon surgery, stomach surgery, small intestinal removal and adrenalectomy.
