Dr. Donald Sonn has received much training as a physician who finished a residency in the Department of Surgery at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York. The Fellow of the American College of Surgeons has had training in minimally invasive surgery. The advocate of minimally invasive techniques believes in the benefits they offer to patients who choose the up and coming surgical procedure over the traditional type of surgery. Compared to a traditional surgery, a minimally invasive surgery can leave patients with a faster recovery time, shorter hospital stay, if any and small scarring on the body. Two of these types of procedures are the GreenLight Laser Surgery and da Vinci Surgical System.

The GreenLight Laser Surgery is focused on treating patients with enlarged prostate glands. Benign Prostate Hyperplasia or BPH, is a common problem in men, especially men who are older. Though some men have traces of the condition at the age of forty, nearly all men have it at the age of eighty. GreenLight Laser Surgery is a minimally intrusive way of treating the patients with this condition. The surgery removes the tissue that is blocking the urethra of the patient. Normally this procedure would take time in a hospital and the patient would stay a certain period of time based on how they held, but with GreenLight Laser Surgery, the surgery is merely an outpatient procedure, making it “remarkable technology,” according to Donald Sonn.

The da Vinci Surgical System has been used in surgery by Donald Sonn for treating patients with prostate cancer. Donald Sonn uses the advanced robotic surgery that is more effective than conventional surgery. The minimally invasive surgery leaves less scarring and provides a quicker recovery time for the patient. Operating through a small incision, rather than a large cut from traditional surgeries, Sonn is able to perform the surgery effectively and in control of the robotic system. The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System has been used approximately 1.5 million times successfully in surgery.
