Choosing Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery used to treat the same condition. With traditional surgeries, the surgeon may have to make large incisions in order to do the operation. Traditional surgery often requires a hospital stay with a lengthy recovery period. A minimally invasive procedure requires a few tiny openings in the skin, and patients enjoy shorter stays in the hospital, and in some cases can go home the same day.

Some common factors that might influence a doctor’s decision to use minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Age
  • General health
  • History of other surgeries
  • Weight
