Minimally-Invasive Surgery


What is Minimally-Invasive Surgery?

Innovations in medicine along with advanced technologies allow for surgery to be conducted in a minimally-invasive manner rather than the traditional open surgery with large incisions. Because less trauma is experienced within the body, the recovery is faster, and the possible risk of muscle damage at the incision site is significantly reduced.

Minimally invasive surgery uses either one or two small incisions less than an inch in length for the laparoscopic procedure, the insertion of tiny tubes, cameras, and surgical instruments to protect the body from unnecessary trauma. Less pain, shorter recovery times, and usually done as an outpatient procedure are some of the benefits of this type of surgery.
