Minimally invasive surgery in southern New Hampshire
Parkland Medical Center uses minimally invasive procedures—those using incisions less than 0.5 inches in length and performed with small instruments—to reduce pain after an operation. Minimally invasive techniques also mean smaller scars, shorter stays and quicker recoveries compared to traditional surgeries.

Innovative tools for highly accurate, minimally invasive surgeries
Our board-certified surgeons use endoscopic instruments to operate through small openings. Surgeons can perform minimally invasive operations, sometimes called “keyhole” surgeries or laparoscopic surgeries, with the assistance of robotic technology.
Procedures that use minimally invasive techniques
We use minimally invasive techniques for over 90 percent of surgical procedures at Parkland and across a variety of surgical specialties, including:
- Heart surgery
- Gastrointestinal surgery
- Gynecologic surgery
- Kidney surgery
- Cancer surgery

A collaborative approach to surgery and ongoing care
While minimally invasive surgeries require shorter stays and smaller incisions compared to traditional procedures, you may still need additional care following an operation. This is why we focus on collaboration, both with our other programs at Parkland and with the surgical experts at our sister facility, Portsmouth Regional Hospital, to provide total care.
