The Posner Tower of Shadyside Hospital houses several state of the art minimally-invasive surgery suites. Hundreds of minimally invasive operations are performed yearly and include operations on the colon, rectum, stomach, intestine, esophagus and liver.

Our minimally invasive surgery suites offer state of the art equipment and a dedicated and experienced team of physician and nursing professionals whom have a track record of working together to provide consistency and technical proficiency in your operation.

In order to perform your operation completely laparoscopically ("bandaid surgery"), we use state of the art instruments including a laparoscopic stapler to divide blood vessels and intestine, a harmonic scalpel to minimize blood loss, an endostitch to suture laparoscopically and micro-ports which allow incision size to be minimized to 1-2 inches.

With an experienced surgical team, we have able extend the “bandaid” approach to even the most complicated diseases and operations.
