Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimizing Risks, Maximizing Recovery

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) or keyhole surgery is performed via tiny incisions to limit trauma, pain, and infection risks. Generally, it is safer with reduced complication risks compared to open surgeries. It utilizes laparoscopic tools and endoscopic tools, with tiny tubes and cameras for precision. Specialised instruments and techniques deliver fewer and smaller incisions, enabling a faster and more comfortable recovery.

The surgeon uses specialised tools and techniques for fewer and smaller incisions, enabling a faster recovery and more comfortable healing process. Also known as keyhole surgery, minimally invasive surgery relies on the use of laparoscopic tools (surgical instruments with tiny tubes and cameras) or endoscopic tools (a medical imaging device inserted directly into the organ).
