Minimally invasive options

Highlands Regional Medical Center’s surgeons are recognized for their expertise in minimally invasive procedures. By using miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high-definition monitors, surgeons can perform surgery through small incisions that take only a few stitches to close. Smaller incisions result in less blood loss, less pain and a quicker recovery. We offer:

  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Endovascular techniques (catheter-guided procedures)
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Laser surgery
  • Robotic surgery
