Why Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive orthopedic surgery has emerged as the new standard of care due to its numerous advantages over traditional open surgery. This innovative approach involves the use of smaller incisions, specialized instrumentation, and advanced imaging techniques, which can result in reduced tissue damage, less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times for patients.


One of the key benefits of minimally invasive orthopedic surgery is the preservation of healthy tissue surrounding the surgical site. This is in contrast to open surgery, where larger incisions can lead to significant muscle and tissue trauma. Studies have shown that minimally invasive procedures result in decreased blood loss and lower rates of infection compared to open surgery, ultimately promoting better outcomes and reduced complications (Julliard et al., 2019; van Jonbergen et al., 2020).

Moreover, minimally invasive techniques have been found to lead to improved joint function and increased patient satisfaction. A study by Smith et al. (2018) demonstrated that patients who underwent minimally invasive knee replacement surgery reported less pain and better range of motion compared to those who underwent traditional open surgery. This is attributed to the smaller incisions, which cause less disruption to the joint and surrounding tissues.

 

Additionally, the faster recovery time associated with minimally invasive procedures has substantial economic implications. Patients who undergo these surgeries can return to work and normal activities sooner, leading to reduced healthcare costs and improved productivity (Bovonratwet et al., 2021).

Overall, the evidence from scientific studies supports the notion that minimally invasive orthopedic surgery is indeed the new standard of care. Its advantages in terms of reduced tissue damage, decreased pain, faster recovery, and improved outcomes make it an attractive option for both patients and healthcare providers alike.
