Find a Surgeon
In addition to standard open surgery, surgeons at Spring Valley Hospital perform laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgery, and robotic-assisted surgery. Our staff works with you to put you at ease and help you feel confident during the surgical process.
Minimally Invasive Surgery*
Many procedures can be done with tiny incisions. This type of surgery may lead to faster healing and less scarring. Using advanced technology, surgeons make small pencil-sized holes in the body. Video equipment is used to provide a magnified view of the surgical site.
Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions. Our surgical suites are designed and equipped for minimally invasive surgery as well as traditional surgery. Talk to your surgeon to see if this type of procedure is right for you.
Surgeons at Spring Valley Hospital can perform minimally invasive procedures for:
- Ear, nose and throat (ENT)
- General surgery
- Neonatal intensive care
The da Vinci® Surgical System includes a surgeon’s console and a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms. It also features a 3D, high-definition vision system and the system’s EndoWrist® instruments.
The da Vinci System is designed to match a surgeon's hand movements into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments. Robotic-assisted procedures may result in a faster recovery and shorter hospital stays.
Surgeons at Spring Valley Hospital are using the da Vinci technology for these procedures:
- Gallbladder surgery
- General surgery
- Gynecologic surgery
- Kidney surgery
- Prostate surgery
