Laparoscopic procedures available at Baptist Health Louisville



Surgeons perform laparoscopic surgery through small incisions that may require only a stitch or two to close. Tubes, or "ports," inserted through these incisions create passageways for specially-designed video cameras that transmit magnified images of the surgical site to a video monitor. The surgeon uses miniature surgical tools to perform the procedure.

While some patients are still best-served through traditional, open surgery, minimally invasive procedures offer alternatives that offer patients fewer complications, less scarring and shorter recovery times. Baptist Health Louisville physicians provide more than 50 laparoscopic and robotic procedures for an array of cardiac, thoracic, urological, gynecological, gastric, bariatric, neurological and cancerous conditions.

Baptist Health Louisville physicians specialize in a full spectrum of minimally-invasive surgical techniques:

General surgery

Urology

Gynecology

Neurosciences

 

Orthopedic


Thoracic
