Minimally Invasive Surgery Available in Taos

Faster recovery, smaller incision, less scaring. 

Our minimally invasive experts provide personal care to every patient. They will have you home doing the things you love in no time. And, you don’t have to leave Taos to receive great care.

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery? Minimally invasive surgeries are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. A long, thin tube with a miniature camera attached at the end (called an endoscope) is passed through one of the incisions. Images from the endoscope are projected onto monitors in the operating room so surgeons can get a clear (and magnified) view of the surgical area. Special instruments are passed through the other openings. These instruments allow the surgeon to perform the surgery by exploring, removing, or repairing whatever's wrong inside the body. Because the incisions are small, patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort than with conventional surgery — all with the same benefits.

Who should have minimally invasive surgery? Only your surgeon can determine if a minimally invasive surgery is right for you. They will conduct a comprehensive evaluation and consider several factors before determining if the procedure is an option for you.
