Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Traditional open surgery involves making a large incision to treat a disease or condition. General anesthesia is used and the recovery time is usually lengthy, including several days in the hospital. As with any surgery, there are many complications that can arise, including infection that can stem from the large incision or internal bleeding.
To reduce post-op pain and minimize recovery time, Dignity Health specialists perform minimally invasive surgery through small incisions, using specialized instruments and techniques to repair and treat many of the same diseases and conditions as open surgery. These procedures offer patients a host of potential benefits, such as:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery
- Less blood loss, pain, scarring and risk of infection
- Fewer post-operative complications
