Minimally Invasive Surgery at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children

We specialize in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgeries that reduce a child’s time in the hospital, reduce pain and virtually eliminate the challenges of large scars as a child grows. 

The pediatric surgery team at RMHC looks to minimally invasive surgery as the first option for your child. When such techniques are safe for the patient, every surgeon that operates at RMHC will explore your child’s minimally invasive options before opting for open surgery.
