Minimally Invasive Method

Just because you need surgery doesn’t mean life stops. Get back to living a full life sooner and better than ever with a minimally invasive surgical procedure at Pakistan Surgical Centre. In minimally invasive surgery, doctors use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery. In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications. Laparoscopy — surgery done through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and tiny cameras and surgical instruments — was one of the first types of minimally invasive surgery. Another type of minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery. It provides a magnified, 3D view of the surgical site and helps the surgeon operate with precision, flexibility and control.

Minimally invasive techniques involve the latest in surgical technology, such as laparoscopy, arthroscopy, endoscopy, cystoscopy and robotics. Because these procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening, you’ll discover benefits such as:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less chance of complications, such as infection
  • Less bleeding and less chance of needing a blood transfusion
  • Less pain and less need for pain medications
  • Minimal scarring – internally and externally
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller incision

Why it’s done

Minimally invasive surgery emerged in the 1980s as a safe and effective technique to meet the surgical needs of many people. In the last 20 years, many surgeons have come to prefer it to traditional (open) surgery, which requires larger incisions and, usually, a longer hospital stay.

Since then the use of minimally invasive surgery has expanded widely in many surgical specialties, including colon surgery and lung surgery. Talk with your doctor about whether you would be a good candidate for this surgical approach.


Minimally invasive surgery uses smaller surgical incisions, and it’s generally less risky than traditional surgery. But even with minimally invasive surgery, there are risks of complications with anesthesia, bleeding, and infection.
