Minimally Invasive Surgery: What you should know

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?
  • Minimally invasive surgery is a form of surgery that is done using small incisions (cuts) on human tissue. During the surgery, tubes called trocars are inserted in the incision and serve as passages for small cameras (laparoscope or endoscope) and specialized surgical equipment.
What are the Advantages of MIS?
  • Since MIS requires smaller incisions compared to the traditional open surgery, the results are less visible postoperative scarring, less pain and bleeding, and a quicker recovery period.
