Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

Smaller scars, minimal blood loss, less postoperative pain, faster recuperation, and shorter hospital stays are among the potential benefits of laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery.

Today, minimally invasive surgery has become the preferred approach to a growing number of major surgeries that previously involved large incisions and lengthy recuperations. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a leader in advancing the evolving practice of laparoscopic techniques, technology, and training throughout New England.

Our accredited Carl J. Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center, one of the most comprehensive such centers in the United States, offers cross-disciplinary training that allows surgeons, medical students, and nurses to master minimally invasive techniques using state-of-the-art simulation technologies. Our Simulation and Skills Center has been featured on CBS Evening News.
