Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) came about in the 1980s as a safe way to meet surgical needs. In recent years, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has revolutionised the field of surgery, offering patients less pain, faster recovery times, and fewer complications compared to traditional open surgery. Since then, the use of minimally invasive surgery has spread widely in many surgical areas, including abdominal, pelvic, and lung surgery, etc. Here at Medicsi, we believe it is essential to raise public awareness about the benefits and the awareness of this remarkable approach to surgical care.

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic or keyhole surgery, involves performing operations through small incisions using specialised instruments and a camera. The camera sends live video to a monitor / TV screen in front of the surgeons, which allows them to visualise the anatomy as they perform complex surgeries with minimal trauma to the patient. This technique contrasts sharply with traditional open surgery, which requires larger incisions to access the area of concern.

Key Advantages of Minimally Invasive Surgery

  1. Reduced Pain and Discomfort Smaller incisions mean less trauma to the body, resulting in significantly reduced postoperative pain and discomfort. This often translates to a decreased need for pain medication.

  1. Faster Recovery Times Patients undergoing MIS typically experience quicker recovery periods. They can return to their normal activities and work sooner compared to those who have had traditional open surgery.

  2. Shorter Hospital Stays The reduced trauma and faster recovery associated with MIS often lead to shorter hospital stays, allowing patients to return home sooner and lowering overall healthcare costs.

  3. Lower Risk of Complications Minimally invasive techniques are associated with a lower risk of infections and other complications. The precision of these procedures minimises damage to surrounding tissues and reduces blood loss during surgery.

  4. Smaller Scars The small incisions used in MIS result in smaller, less noticeable scars, which can be an important consideration for many patients, especially when the surgery involves visible areas of the body.
