Introduction: Surgical Procedures, Minimally Invasive

Description of Surgical Procedures, Minimally Invasive

Surgical Procedures, Minimally Invasive: Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
