Minimally Invasive Techniques
Surgery is required for some digestive conditions; however, minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopy, provide patients with:
- shorter recovery time
- shorter hospital stay
- less post-operative pain
- 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.
The Florida Hospital Digestive Health Center's interventional radiologists have developed extensive expertise in the treatment of digestive disorders and diseases. Working with our team of cancer specialists at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, interventional radiologists also provide treatments for patients with digestive-related cancers.
