Minimally invasive surgeries are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening, hence resulting in quicker recovery times and less discomfort compared to conventional surgery — all with the same benefits.
During a minimally invasive procedure, surgeons make several small incisions in the skin — just a few millimeters, in some cases. A long, thin tube with a miniature camera attached at the end (called an endoscope) is passed through one of the incisions. Images from the endoscope are projected onto monitors in the operating room so surgeons can get a clear (and magnified) view of the surgical area. Special instruments are passed through the other openings. These instruments allow the surgeon to perform the surgery by exploring, removing, or repairing whatever's wrong inside the body.
Minimally invasive surgery can take longer than conventional surgery, but the pros usually outweigh the cons. Because the incisions are small, the patient usually feels less pain, has less scarring, and recovery time is shorter.
Benefits of Minimally invasive surgeries:
- Quicker & accurate diagnosis
- Faster recovery with shorter hospital stay
- Minimal tissue damage, hence less pain
- Minimal post-operative infections
- Precise surgical techniques can be performed
- Minimal scarring
