Minimally invasive techniques reduce the trauma associated with surgical procedures. This allows patients to recover faster. Patients who choose minimally invasive surgery may experience: shorter recovery, less pain after surgery, and less scarring.Minimally invasive surgery usually involves making tiny incisions, sometimes no more than a quarter-inch in legnth. This results in less trauma to the body then experienced with an open incision. Through these incisions, instruments along with a tiny camera are inserted allowing the surgeon and staff to view the operation from a flat panel monitor.
Because minimally invasive surgery usually requires only tiny incisions, patients generally return to their normal daily activities much faster than with traditional surgery.
