Minimally Invasive Surgery
Smaller incisions can have big benefits. We offer minimally invasive procedures, such as laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery may lead to faster healing and less scarring. This is because surgeons make small incisions. The advanced video equipment gives surgeons a clearer view of the surgical area. Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions.
Robotic Surgery Center
Surgeons at Summerlin Hospital use the robotic-assisted da Vinci® Surgical System. The surgeon is in complete control. The system allows doctors to perform complex procedures using smaller incisions than standard surgery. Tiny robotic tools are inserted through the small incisions.
Patients may experience benefits including:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
- Shorter recovery times
- Quicker return to work and normal activities
- Reduced scarring
Our robotic-assisted surgery options include:
- Colorectal surgery
- Gallbladder surgery
- Gynecologic surgery
- Kidney surgery
- Prostate Surgery
We offer both elective and emergency surgeries. Common procedures include hernia repair, surgery to remove urinary blockages and gallbladder removal. We also offer urology surgery for children.
In addition to general surgery, we provide these surgical services:
Your surgical team will clearly explain your surgery. This includes making sure you understand the process, step by step. We also help you prepare for your surgery, and for your recovery after. Your care team will include your surgeon, nurses and anesthesiology staff, if needed.
Advanced Prostate Cancer Treatment
We offer high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology for prostate cancer patients. With this minimally invasive treatment, soundwaves target cancer cells and destroy them.
No radiation is needed and it is a one-time, outpatient surgery. Patients may have fewer side effects than with traditional cancer surgery and treatments. Summerlin Hospital was the first in Nevada to offer this treatment.
* Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if minimally invasive or robotic surgery is right for you.
