Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more common, in part, because of the positive outcomes and patient benefits. Some of those benefits are:

  • Less trauma to the body
  • Significantly less pain
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Less scarring and fewer scars
  • Fewer surgical complications
  • A shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities
  • Less need for pain controlling medication
