Minimally-invasive Technologies for Surgery

Did you know that many common surgeries no longer require a large, invasive incision? Thanks to technological advancements and training, surgery at Ogden Clinic is becoming faster, easier, and safer. In the past, many conditions in the abdominal or pelvic regions required highly invasive open surgery, but now those conditions can be corrected without that level of risk to the body. One of the most important oaths in medicine is the commitment to “first, do no harm”, and minimally invasive surgery at the Ogden Clinic is a perfect example of this dedication in action.

Laparoscopic Surgery at Ogden Clinic

At Ogden Clinic, our surgeons are equipped to perform minimally invasive surgery with a laparoscope. Laparoscopic surgery is becoming increasingly popular in the world today thanks to its many benefits including:

  • Shorter hospital stays, or sometimes no stay at all!
  • Less internal trauma and scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Less post-operative discomfort
  • Better cosmetic results

With only a few small incisions, our surgeons guide a slender tube with a built-in laparoscopic camera into the affected site. They use thin, responsive instruments to perform the operation with incredible precision. Your Ogden Clinic surgeon views the entire procedure through a video screen while maneuvering the camera.

Procedures such as biopsy, hernia repair, cholecystectomy, polyp and ulcer removal, and colon cancer removal can be performed laparoscopically. Minimally invasive surgery has been practiced for many years here at Ogden Clinic, and they have seen great success including safer operation and easier recovery. Often, these operations don’t even require an overnight stay, saving you time and money.
