River Falls Area Hospital offers state-of-the-art minimally
invasive surgical procedures when appropriate.
In these procedures, the surgeon inserts a camera through an
incision and sees the images on a monitor. Special instruments for
the procedure are inserted into other small incisions.
The surgeon can view the procedure on a fiber optic,
high-definition monitor that can magnify and enhance the view.
In addition, other images, such as X-ray images, can be shown on
the monitors at the same time, allowing the surgeon to see the
camera and the images simultaneously. The patients benefit by
usually experiencing less pain and having faster recovery
