Minimally invasive techniques are used for procedures that can be performed without a large incision. Surgeons typically make small incisions approximately one-half inch long to insert tiny video cameras or specially designed surgical instruments to perform the procedures.

Advantages include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Less blood loss
