Minimally invasive surgery is widely used at Legacy. Among the specialties that use minimally invasive techniques for some cases:
- General surgery — gastroesophogeal, liver, pancreas, colorectal, hernia
- Bariatric (weight-loss) surgery
Many minimally invasive cases use robotic technology. Guided by the surgeon, robotic procedures often allow for greater precision. The robotic tools allow your surgeon to make precise, accurate moves with more agility than the human hand. Legacy Health has been at the forefront of robotic surgical technology for years.
Robotic procedures are available at Legacy Emanuel, Legacy Good Samaritan, Legacy Meridian Park, Legacy Mount Hood and Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Centers. Every patient is different — talk to your doctor about whether robotic-assisted surgery is the best choice for you.
