Minimally Invasive Center of Excellence
Westlake Hospital offers minimally invasive, targeted treatments that offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to traditional surgery. These non-surgical treatment options offer patients several advantages:
- Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis or require only a short hospital stay.
- General anesthesia is not usually required.
- Risk, pain and recovery time are significantly reduced.
- Procedures are sometimes less costly than surgery or other alternatives.
Westlake Hospital has board-certified physicians available 24 hours a day, including surgeons, gynecologists and interventional radiologists, who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. Our minimally invasive team provides the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available, coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. Typically, these skilled physicians use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically.
