Many surgeries that once meant days in the hospital are now performed through ultra-small or hidden incisions. For most patients, the post-surgical recovery from minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopy and robotic surgery is far quicker and less painful and patients experience fewer complications than with traditional surgery.
Beaufort Memorial surgeons have access to state-of-the-art
