In minimally invasive surgery (MIS), surgeons use a variety of techniques to operate with less injury to the body than with open surgery. In general, it is safer than open surgery and allows you to recover faster and heal with less pain and scarring.
Surgery is through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and tiny video cameras and surgical instruments. At Siriroj International Hospital, surgeons use 3-D camera which gives a magnified view, great precision, flexibility and control.
Continual innovations in minimally invasive surgery, make it useful for an ever-expanding list of procedures.
Laparoscopic surgery provides better postoperative quality of life in many clinical situations. MIS has many benefits for patients, including the following:
- Less scaring
- Quicker recovery, less pain and shorter hospital stays
- Reduces the incidence of post-surgical complications
