Minimally invasive surgery (also known as MIS, laparoscopic, or endoscopic surgery) allows physicians to perform many types of surgical procedures through 1-2 cm incisions. For most patients, a minimally invasive approach offers substantially less pain, less blood loss and a much shorter recovery. Other advantages include reduced need for blood transfusions, minimal scarring, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stays and quicker return to normal activities.
