What are the known risks of minimally invasive surgery?

Which one?: Minimally invasive surgery(mis)includes a wide variety of operations performed by many different types of surgeons. The risks of any operation are very dependent on the organ being operated on and the health of the prospective patient. As a general surgeon, mis is used synonymously with laparoscopic surgery, placing a small camera in the abdomen and working thru keyhole-sized incisions.
