Minimally Invasive Surgery

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS, in German: MIC) is a new kind of surgery which gets more and more common nowadays. Another well-known expression is “endoscopic surgery”. With this method, a surgical operation is performed by the help of: 1) a small endoscopic camera 2) several long, thin, rigid instruments through natural body openings or small artificial incisions (“keyhole surgery”).

In comparison to the usual, open surgery, there exist several advantages for the patient:

· less pain, less strain of the organism

· faster recovery

· small injuries (aesthetic reasons)

· economic gain (shorter illness time)
