Introduction & Scope


Minimally invasive surgery is performed without making a major incision or opening, resulting in fewer traumas for the patient and yielding significant cost savings. These
are results of shorter hospitalization times and reduced therapy requirements. Other benefits of minimally invasive surgery are less pain, less need for postsurgical pain
medication, less scarring and less likelihood of complications related to the incision. Thus, minimally invasive surgery is defined either as based on the operative procedure
(e.g., small incisions) or the outcome (reduced surgical complications or costs). However, minimally invasive is not the same as minor surgery. Some “minimally invasive” procedures (e.g., coronary artery bypass surgery) are still major operations requiring a hospital stay.

In minimally invasive surgery, a miniature camera is introduced into the body through a small incision. It transmits images to a video monitor, enabling the physician to
diagnose and, if necessary, treat a variety of conditions. To do this, the physician inserts surgical instruments and auxiliary devices, such as irrigation and drainage devices, through one or more small incisions. Minimally invasive procedures share some important characteristics with minimally invasive surgery but should not be confused with either ambulatory (“walk-in”) or noninvasive surgery.
