Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)

"Minimally invasive" procedure means that we use the smallest incisions possible and the least traumatic techniques to accomplish the surgery performed.

This may include the use of:

  • laparoscopes
  • small vaginal incisions
  • da Vinci robot (see next section)
  • or other specialized equipment

All of this is focused on our goal of allowing patients to return to normal activity as soon as possible, with a minimum of pain and the shortest possible recovery.  Some people refer to Minimally-invasive surgery as only laparoscopic surgery.  Although we are a leader in Laparoscopic surgeries, such as hysterectomy and myomectomy (fibroids), we also strive to perform vaginal and open abdominal surgeries in the most minimally invasive way possible.

In this photograph, Dr. Greenberg is training another surgeon in the use of the GelPoint LESS -  Laparoendoscopic Single Site Surgery  - which makes the laparoscopic surgery possible through only one incision. The result is less pain, less scarring, and allowing the patient to return back to normal activity more quickly than with traditional surgeries.  Read more about Dr. Greenberg pioneering LESS in Western Massachusetts
