Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

Surgeons at Emory Johns Creek Hospital use special instruments to perform procedures with smaller incisions, called minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgeries. When you undergo a minimally invasive surgery, you spend less time in the hospital and have fewer risks for complications like bleeding or pain. Our surgeons research new minimally invasive techniques and share their knowledge with other surgeons and residents so that all patients can receive safer surgical care.

Patients may want to consider another less invasive surgical treatment, known as robotic surgery.

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.

For the patient, benefits 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
