What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

“Minimally invasive surgery” refers to any type of surgical procedure that uses small incisions rather than large openings for surgical proceedings. During minimally invasive surgery, a surgeon makes one or several incisions only a few millimeters in length. He or she then passes a small camera and light (called an endoscope) through the incision to view the area of interest in real time. Surgery itself is performed with specialized instruments designed to meet the demands of each procedure.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

As the field of surgery has progressed and surgical technology has advanced, more surgical procedures are performed as minimally invasive surgeries. This is because minimally invasive surgery can have a host of advantages over traditional surgery, including:

  • Less Risk: By keeping the area of surgery as localized as possible, minimally invasive surgery poses a far smaller risk of damage to surrounding body parts than traditional surgery.
  • Shorter Recovery Times: Minimally invasive surgeries often lead to shorter recovery times for patients to due to lessened overall impact on the body itself. They also typically translate into shorter hospital stays for patients.
  • Reduced Scarring: Smaller incisions lead to smaller scars — a major benefit for patients young and old.
