Minimal invasive surgeries involve the use of advanced robots, which allows doctors to have a 3d view for a particular part of interest. These robotic devices have been designed to give surgeons better vision while also allowing them to have more control when carrying out surgeries. Additionally, these devices come with robotic arms which replace traditional hand movements, hence giving surgeons precise locations. All of these benefits can be achieved with incisions between one to two inches long.
There are a host of benefits to a patient who has accepted this type of surgery. One significant benefit is the size of the incision. A traditional surgery required incisions of between four to six inches; but for minimally invasive surgery, incisions are quite smaller between one and two inches. This difference in incision allows patients to move easily after the surgery. Additionally, this technique is less painful and allows patients to heal faster. After surgery, less swelling is witnessed in the area and also less invasion of the most sensitive nerves. Ultimately, patients are not required to use stronger drugs to relieve pain.
