Asian Minimally Invasive Surgery Institute
Asian Minimally Invasive Surgery Institute promotes the best possible outcome for a patient through a Minimally Invasive approach to surgery. A minimally invasive surgery is done through small incisions (called keyholes) of 1 to 2 cm only, in contrast to the 10 to 12 inches long incisions in the conventional surgeries.
For a patient Minimally Invasive Surgery means the following:
- Small Incisions - Unlike traditional surgery, minimally invasive procedures involve small 1 to 2 cm incisions. Through the incisions, laparoscopic instruments and cameras are inserted to perform surgery.
- Shorter Hospital Stay - The hospital stay of the patient is reduced and the patient is discharged from the hospital within 2 to 3 days post procedure, as compared to 8 to 10 days in open surgery.
- Faster return to normal life - The patient is able to resume daily, routine activities in 5 to 7 days as compared to 2 to 3 weeks in an open surgery
- Less pain and trauma
- Less Blood loss - The blood loss during surgery is reduced, thereby reducing the need for blood transfusion.
- Reduced Risk of Infection
- Better Cosmetic Outcome - Small incisions, means fewer stitches thereby offering a better cosmetic outcome.
