Many of the operations performed by our surgeons are done in a minimally-invasive fashion. The goals of this approach is to reduce pain and decrease the recovery time, while providing an equally high-quality of surgery as a conventional approach. Atrial fibrillation (AFib) surgery, lung surgery, and many esophageal surgeries can routinely be performed through very small incisions aided by high-definition scope technology. For some surgeries, scope technology is not applicable but smaller incisions are feasible. Less invasive approaches are always considered when we plan treatment with our patients.
