Surgical Treatments for a Variety of Conditions

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are offered as an alternative to traditional open surgery for a broad range of procedures. Open cuts into the body, as required by traditional surgery, carry risks like infection, bleeding, and blood clots. Using minimally invasive techniques, our surgeons can perform advanced surgeries through much smaller incisions. This allows for quicker healing times and less risk of infection.

The general surgery department at IHS offers a range of minimally invasive surgical services for a large number of medical conditions. Procedures offered at Independence Health System include the following and more:

  • Biopsies
