Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) currently allows doctors to perform many complicated operations with a short hospital stay. MIS is appealing to patients because it means less trauma to the body, less blood loss, smaller surgical scars, shorter hospital stays and less need for pain medication. It is a safe, feasible, and patient-friendly method of performing an operation. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is available for many different types of surgical operations.
