The Growth of Minimally Invasive Procedures
With profound technological advancements in the last decade, surgeons have been able to develop new ways of minimizing open surgery. Minimal invasive procedures can be classified as a surgical procedure which minimizes the amount of incisions needed to perform a surgery.
Minimally invasive procedures aim to make dime-sized incisions during surgeries to decrease tissue dissection and overall trauma to the body. Such procedures in surgeries such as knee or hip replacements shorten recovery times and accelerate the healing process. They also decrease the risk of infections or complications, because less of the internal body is distressed, exposed or manipulated during the surgery. Open surgeries have added risks, complications and elongated recovery times, making minimally invasive procedures an attractive alternative.
