SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- For many people undergoing surgery, the fear of missing work or being unable to recuperate after a procedure can scare or prevent them from going under the knife. However, thanks to an array of minimally invasive treatments offered by Hudson Valley Surgical Group, operations are resulting in shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times and significantly less risk and pain.
HVSG's surgeons understand that after a procedure, most patients wish to limit scarring and quickly return to their normal lives. To help do so, the group's doctors are trained in the latest minimally invasive tools and techniques and use leading-edge technology to ensure the best possible treatment. "Technology has come a long way for surgeons, as we can quickly diagnose problems and quickly figure out ways to treat them," said Dr. Har Chi Lau of HVSG. "The minimally invasive and robotic surgical procedures help us limit scarring and pain."
HVSG specializes in everything from abdominal surgery to thyroid care, and their experienced team has performed over 17,000 laparoscopic surgical procedures. "We know what works best and we're only getting smarter thanks to the advancement of technology and medicine," said Lau. "We've made a huge jump over the past decade in medicine. I can only imagine where we'll be in another 10 years."
By focusing on providing patients with a personal approach, HVSG offers the expertise of a large university hospital but the service of a local practice. "Our approach has always remained the same in providing our patients with everything they need, from pre-surgery to recovery," said Lau. "We think minimally invasive procedures are the best way to return patients to their normal selves in a time frame suited to today's active lifestyles."
