Minimally Invasive Surgery – Strong & Advanced Replacement of Open Surgery

Minimally invasive surgeries has gained popularity in US and worldwide in the past 2 decades. Nowadays, several surgical and gynaecological procedures are carried out using the minimally invasive skills.

Minimally invasive surgery is a replacement for large openings which was usually done with several small tube devices like trocars that were typically three to five per procedure for which few of the surgical instruments and video camera are inserted into trocars to carry out surgical procedures. An example that showcases the benefits of the ‘minimally invasive surgery’ is gallbladder surgery.

The laparoscopic gallbladder-surgery initially became popular during 1990’s. This laparoscopic gallbladder treatment is performed typically as out-patient surgical procedure after which patients can move out to work immediately and perform other activities just within 4 to 7 days. Contrasting this with the normal gallbladder surgery, patients on whom these open incisions were performed could start to work only after 6 to 8 weeks.

Originally, laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery was performed by gynaecologists for several diagnostic purposes during 1960s. After the increase of clinical experiences, laparoscopic surgical equipments became more sophisticated and surgeons started performing more complicated surgeries.

During 1980s, general surgeons started to examine and adopt laparoscopic procedures. Now surgeons perform many minimally invasive processes that include tubal sterilization, hysterectomy, colon resections, exploratory laparoscopy, appendectomy, hernia repair and gallbladder removal. Even more sophisticated procedures like gastric bypass along with the roux-en-y are performed on obsessed patients.

Thus, minimally invasive surgery is indeed beneficial compared to the conventional open surgery. Because of the several benefits like post-operative incisional-hernias, lower risks associated with infection, reduction of scarring, and painless treatment, patients have started demanding surgeons to consider the least minimally invasive approaches to meet their surgical requirements.

There have been discussions in the past about the upcoming minimally invasive procedures called NOTES (Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery) which involves skin incisions elimination by accessing the internal organs via natural orifices like the vagina, anus or mouth.
