Minimally Invasive Surgery
What is Minimally invasive surgery :
- Also known as Endoscopic Surgery, Laparoscopic Surgery, Thoracoscopic Surgery, Or “Keyhole” Surgery.
- These are minimally invasive procedures that utilize an endoscope to reach internal organs through very small incisions
How does it Work?
- During endoscopic surgery the surgeon inserts a thin, flexible tube with a video camera through a small incision or a natural orifice. The tube has a channel to utilize tiny surgical instruments, which the surgeon uses while viewing the organs on a computer monitor.
- This technique allows the surgeon to see inside the patient’s body and operate through a much smaller incision than would otherwise be required of traditional open surgery.
