Minimally invasive surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is a surgery minimizing surgical incisions to reduce trauma to the body. This type of surgery is performed using very small incisions, allowing the introduction of an endoscope connected to a camera and the introduction of some micro-instruments. That camera allows surgeons to have a magnified image leading to a very precise dissection of the operated organs.
While traditional surgical methods often require longer recovery periods some of the key advantages of minimally invasive surgery is to reduce post-operative pain, blood loss and to enable a speedy recovery including a short hospital stay. Minimally invasive approach also prevents from parietal wall complications and infections as well from post-operative incisional hernia.
Some of the key benefits are
Reduced blood loss
Less postoperative pain
Faster return to normal activities
Reduced Risk Of Wall Abscess And Eventration
Postoperative incisional hernia.
Shorter recovery time and lower healthcare costs
