The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes



Academic Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery

Winnie Palmer Hospital is proud to be recognized as an Academic Center of Excellence by the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery (AIMIS). Our facility is the only hospital in Florida and the second in the nation to receive this high honor, which is awarded to teaching hospitals that combine efforts with an accredited AIMIS surgeon and meet standards for minimally invasive surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery helps reduce recovery time and provides better patient outcomes, which is why 75 percent of surgeries performed at Winnie Palmer Hospital in 2010 were minimally invasive. While the national average for minimally invasive hysterectomies is about 20 percent, 67 percent of hysterectomies at our hospital are performed via minimally invasive surgery.
