What is a Keyhole Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is a new kind of surgery which is getting 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 or a microscope
2. several long, thin, rigid/flexible 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:

Advantage of minimal access surgery

  • Less tissue trauma
  • Less blood loss
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Better cosmetic results - smaller scars    

Disadvantages of minimal access surgery

  • Lack of tactile feedback
  • Increased technical expertise required
  • Possible longer duration of surgery
  • Increased risk of iatrogenic injuries
  • Difficult removal of bulky organs
  • More expensive and huge investments in instrumentation leading to potentially higher cost per surgery
