The Brooklyn Hospital Center possesses one of the finest surgical departments in the New York area. Our expert team of surgeons, physician assistants, nurses and support staff performs more than 10,000 procedures annually and have extensive experience conducting some of the most advanced surgical interventions in the country.
At The Brooklyn Hospital Center, your surgeon may recommend minimally invasive surgery — also called MIS or laparoscopic surgery — for your illness or condition. In minimally invasive procedures, your doctor makes one or more small incisions, which allow one or more tubes to be inserted. The tube or tubes let the doctor slip in tiny video cameras and surgical tools to perform the procedure.
With minimally invasive surgery, you will lose less blood and have less postoperative pain, fewer and smaller scars, and much faster recovery time than you would after open surgery. You will require only a short hospital stay in most cases.
