Minimally invasive surgery (MIS), also known as keyhole or band-aid surgery, is the surgical technique of utilizing the knowledge of important anatomy, along with cutting-edge technology, to treat your medical condition without causing undue injury to the surrounding soft tissues. By utilizing specialized instruments and often robotic assistance, your surgeon is able to perform complex surgical procedures safely through small incision, often under one centimeter. This provides the benefit of less trauma to the body and quicker recovery. Magnification is also frequently utilized during these procedures to provide improved visualization of important anatomic structures such as nerve and blood vessels to prevent damage with improved outcomes.
ADVANTAGES OF MIS INCLUDE:
Less post-operative pain
Reduced blood loss
Less soft tissue damage
