  • UW Health surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible. Minimally invasive surgery offers many benefits to patients, including less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker return to the lifestyle to which they're accustomed.



    We Think Small


    At UW Health, we specialize in performing the most complex of procedures through the smallest of incisions. These minimally-invasive surgeries mean our patients scar less, heal faster, and are back to their lives that much sooner. And some even walk away with just a Band-Aid or two.


    Our Doctors


    UW Health neurosurgeon Nathaniel Brooks, MD, applies minimally-invasive surgical techniques to more involved procedures, to the benefit of his patients.
