At HighPoint Surgical Associates our mission is to provide the latest surgical innovations that benefit our patients and deliver superior care.

We offer a range of surgical procedures that include general and minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeries.

Through the use of advanced robotic systems, our doctors have greater control and vision during surgery, allowing them to perform safer, less invasive, and precise surgical procedures. For the patient this means smaller or fewer incisions, less pain, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, less scarring, and a quicker recovery time.

Based on demonstrated excellence in patient outcomes, Sumner Regional Medical Center has been designated as a Mentor Case Observation Proctor Site for general and robotic surgery. This means our lead specialist Dr. Brian K. Reed MD is teaching and training doctors and surgical teams across the nation on the use of robotic technology for surgery.

Advanced Treatment Options

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that allows a surgeon to operate through a few tiny incisions, sometimes as small as a few millimeters. They are able to view the inside of a patient using a microscopic camera that is placed in the body through a thin flexible tube called a laparoscope.

Patient Benefits:

  • Smaller or fewer incisions
  • Less pain
  • Lower chance of complications
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less blood loss

Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Dr. Reed controls the system, which translates his hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the tiny surgical instruments.

Patient Benefits

  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities

Not all patients or procedures are appropriate for minimally invasive surgical techniques. Talk to your physician to learn more.
