Minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery
Our experienced consultants pioneer new types of minimally invasive surgery - reducing patients' pain and discomfort, speeding up recovery and minimising scarring.
For an increasing number of operations we can offer you minimally invasive techniques, operating through small incisions (keyhole surgery).
Keyhole operations have many benefits for patients, particularly faster recovery times - and in some cases the ability to go home the same or next day. There is also less pain and scarring, a lower risk of infection and other complications that can result from making large incisions.
We work with only the finest surgeons in the country, who are passionate about offering progressive surgical options to patients. Because of our independent, charitable status we are not constrained in providing the latest options that are best for you - when you need them.
There are many different types of keyhole surgery, so your surgeon may discuss with you a range of invasive and minimally invasive options.
Some of our minimally invasive or non-invasive treatments include:
- Ankle arthroscopy
- Knee arthroscopy
- Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal)
- Laparoscopic hysterectomy
- Laparoscopic groin hernia repair
