Minimally invasive surgery (MIS), or Keyhole Surgery can also be known as Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgery if procedure is at the abdominal area.
Several small incisions are made (usually 0.5 – 1.5 cm) in the body to accomodate approximately 4 to 6 ports. This surgical procedure allows surgeons to access structures inside the body without having to make large incisions in the skins.
Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery, resulting in lesser post-operative pain, fewer wound complications, shorter hospital stays and the potential to return to work more quickly.
