Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery 
da Vinci® S Robotic Surgery

After more than 100 years of constant striving to give you more, UofL Health now invites you to expect less. Less pain, less hospital time, less recovery time and whole lot less inconvenience.

We are now performing a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures, including orthopaedic, cardiothoracic and procedures using the da Vinci® S Robotic Surgery Program and laparoscopic surgery, where surgeons use the most advanced technology to perform prostate, kidney, cardiac and other surgical procedures through Band-Aid sized incisions.

These minimally invasive procedures provide surgeons with an alternative to traditional open surgery, enabling them to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Smaller incisions and less scarring
  • Decreased risk of wound infections
  • Shorter recovery time, meaning less time in the hospital
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes

Laparoscopic procedures are available at UofL Health - UofL Health - Jewish Hospital and UofL Health - Mary’s Surgery Center and the da Vinci® Robotic program is available at UofL Health - Jewish Hospital, providing you and your physician the highest level of convenience without sacrificing the highest level of quality.

Ask your doctor if minimally invasive surgery is right for you. For more information about scheduling a minimally invasive procedure, call 888.229.4206.
