Minimally Invasive Surgery

More Than Half Of The Surgeries We Perform Are Minimally Invasive

Also known as laparoscopic, endoscopic or arthroscopic surgery, minimally invasive procedures offer distinct advantages for many patients, including smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery. Currently at Uniontown Hospital, more than half of the surgeries we perform are minimally invasive.

In minimally invasive procedures, surgeons use several small incisions, rather than one large one. A fiberoptic cable with a tiny camera attached is inserted through one of the incisions, and acts as a guide for the surgeon by sending internal images to a monitor. The surgeon then performs the procedure by inserting tiny surgical tools through the small incisions.

At Uniontown Hospital, our expert surgeons are experienced at performing minimally invasive surgeries in virtually every field:

  • Orthopedics
  • General
  • Gastroenterology
  • Gynecology

And our patients are reaping the rewards - with smaller scars, shorter recovery times, fewer side effects and less pain.
