Surgical Techniques

Conventional surgery makes large incisions (or cuts) through the skin, muscle, and other layers of the body. When most people think of surgery, they picture a doctor using a scalpel and other surgical instruments to cut into and remove, repair, or replace parts of the body affected by disease. Newer surgical techniques are less invasive, use different types of surgical instruments, and lead to less pain and shorter recovery times. Cryosurgery (cryotherapy) is the use of extreme cold in surgery to destroy abnormal or diseased tissue. Laser light is precisely aimed to cut or destroy a tumor. Electro surgery is used in oncology to destroy cancerous or abnormal cells using a high-frequency current. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses heat made by radio waves to kill cancer cells. Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. Thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a type of thoracic surgery performed using a small video camera that is introduced into the patient's chest via small incisions. Laparoscopic surgery & Robotic surgeries are commonly called “minimally invasive” surgery because it involves smaller incisions.
