Minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical techniques that utilize smaller or fewer incisions and cause less damage to your body. Previously, all surgery was done as open surgery. During open surgery, a large incision is made through your skin and tissue to get access to the surgical area, which usually requires a longer recovery period and greater risk, not to mention a larger scar.
Today, the surgeons at May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology have many options for performing surgery, including minimally invasive surgery.
