Minimally Invasive Techniques
Surgery is required for some digestive conditions; however, minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopy, provide patients with:
- shorter recovery times
- shorter hospital stays

- less risk of infection
- less scarring
Florida Hospital's facilities have the highest level of technology, are equipped with state-of-the-art surgical tools and the newest and most sophisticated instrumentation, and offer non-invasive diagnostic and treatment therapies.
