Minimally Invasive Surgery

What is minimally invasive surgery?

As the name implies, minimally invasive surgery is less invasive than many traditional surgeries. During open surgery, surgeons make one large incision that may take longer to heal.

Minimally invasive surgery often involves less down time, a quicker recovery, and fewer post-surgery side effects than open surgeries.
