Minimal Invasive Surgery/Laparoscopic Surgery

Transforming the Way We Operate with advanced surgical care

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is becoming increasingly popular. This surgical approach involves using techniques that minimize the size and number of incisions required. Compared to open surgery, MIS is often considered safer, with faster healing, shorter hospital stays, and less discomfort. While it may not be appropriate for all procedures, MIS has the potential to offer less pain and quicker recovery. Your surgeon can help determine if it is the best option for your specific circumstances.

Types of Minimal Invasive Surgery

Below are some common types of Minimal Invasive Surgery:

Endoscopy – During endoscopy, the surgeon uses the endoscope itself to perform the surgery, without the need for incisions. The endoscope is inserted into the body through its natural openings.

Laparoscopy – During laparoscopy, the surgeon uses a scope and specialized surgical instruments, inserted into the body through tiny incisions, to perform the procedure.

Robot-assisted surgery Robotic surgery – In robotic surgery, the surgeon creates several small incisions to insert a scope and robotic equipment into the body. The procedure is then performed by the surgeon while seated at a computer terminal.

How Does Minimally Invasive Surgery Work?

During minimally invasive surgery, the patient will receive anesthesia in order to be asleep throughout the procedure. The surgeon inserts the scope after that. It can be injected into the body by surgeons using:

  • The body’s naturally occurring holes (such as the mouth or nose) 
  • Or, little body cuts.

In order to provide surgeons with a good (and enlarged) view of the surgical region, images from the scope are shown on monitors in the operating room. Special surgical equipment or devices may be placed through additional tiny incisions during some minimally invasive procedures. These are used by the surgeon to examine, treat, or eliminate an inside problem. The surgeon may occasionally need to transition to an open procedure after performing a minimally invasive procedure to examine the innards of the patient. If the issue is not what the surgeon anticipated, this can occur.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

Below are some known benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery:

  • Fewer, smaller incisions needed to access the operative site.
  • Reducing the need for a long incision, resulting in less blood loss.
  • Quicker recovery as your body undergoes less trauma.
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • A better surgical experience for older patients, obese patients, and those who suffer from chronic pain.

Are there any side effects of Minimally Invasive Surgery?

With proper training, there are few drawbacks to minimally invasive surgery (MIS). During MIS, doctors insufflate the abdominal cavity with carbon dioxide gas to improve visibility. After surgery, the gas is released, but some patients may experience shoulder discomfort due to lingering pockets of gas that can irritate the diaphragm. However, this soreness typically resolves within a few days.
