What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS), commonly known as ‘keyhole’ surgery, has lots of benefits for the patient such as:

  • Less post-operative pain and trauma
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Smaller scars / improved cosmesis (cosmetic appearance of scarring)
  • Less invasive
  • Less discomfort
  • Earlier return to full activities

During the procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and plastic tubes called 'ports' are placed into these incisions acting as a channel into the body. It is performed using an endoscope (camera), which is placed through a port access system into the body, transmitting an image of the internal organs onto a screen which the surgeon is able to watch while operating. The endoscope becomes the surgeon's eyes for the entirety of the procedure and our instruments are the surgeon’s hands.
