Minimally Invasive Surgery

Bringing the Most Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery to the Region

The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Monmouth Medical Center has introduced to central New Jersey the most advanced, state-of-the-art laparoscopic surgical procedures to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Minimally invasive, or laparoscopic, surgery is performed through several tiny openings with the aid of a viewing scope known as an endoscopic camera. Advantages of the minimally invasive versus traditional approach to surgery include less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries. Additionally, because laparoscopic procedures use much smaller incisions, scarring is minimalized. Also, the risk of wound infection or abdominal hernia, which can result from larger incisions, is greatly reduced. The center's highly skilled surgeons offer expertise in the laparoscopic surgical treatment of severe heartburn, morbid obesity, hernias and diseases of the intestine, kidneys, and adrenals.

Through the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Monmouth, these minimally invasive approaches are accomplishing traditional surgical goals with less pain, faster recovery and lower wound complication rates.
