The VMH Surgery Center is equipped with the latest technology available for inpatient and outpatient procedures. Minimally invasive surgical techniques incorporate miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high-definition monitors to allow our surgeons to perform surgery through an incision that requires only a stitch or two to close. For patients this means fewer traumas, less blood loss, smaller surgical scars, less need for pain medication and earlier discharge.
