Surgery is a branch of medicine that uses operative procedures to treat injuries, deformities, diseases and disorders. Many surgical procedures include mending broken bones, reattaching severed limbs, removing diseased and injured tissue and organs and stopping uncontrollable bleeding. The surgical field of medicine also includes the diagnoses, preoperative and postoperative care and treatment.
SVMHS surgeons also perform a number of procedures through single-port surgery—entering the body through a tiny incision in the belly button. Unlike a traditional multi-port laparoscopic approach, single port access surgery leaves only a single small scar.
