Benefits of MIS

  • Because minimally invasive surgery (MIS) requires smaller incisions, patients typically recover faster. Benefits of MIS include:

    • Less pain
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Less impact on the immune system
    • Less blood loss
    • Less scarring
    • Significantly smaller incisions that require fewer stitches
    • Lower chance of infection and wound complications
    • Faster return to work and normal activities
    • Covered by most insurance providers, just as traditional surgery is covered
