If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. Surgeons and hospitals are re-writing standards for surgical care by changing the experience of surgery.
At St. Francis-Emory Healthcare we're committed to providing innovative and safe alternatives to traditional open surgery, whenever possible. Whether we're using robotic-assisted technology or 3D planning functionality for precision and accuracy, we want you to explore and understand all of your options.
While minimally invasive surgery effectively reduces recovery time and gives surgeons greater control, it may not be for everyone. Sometimes traditional open surgery provides surgeons better access to the area to be treated, and sometimes a patient's age, physical condition and surgical history may necessitate open surgery.
