What Are Some Disadvantages Of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Very few.: The goal of every operation is to safely accomplish the desired outcome. "mis" allows us to do this with much less pain than traditional surgery, but it should never be at the expense of less safety. Furthermore, the indications for surgery shouldn't change based on technique. A critical measure of competence is the number of prior options performed--be sure to ask your surgeon this question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I'm being evaluated for heart surgery. Specifically an aorta heart valve replacement and possibly surgery for an enlarged aorta measuring 5.1 cm. Would the combination of the above preclude me as a candidate for minimally invasive surgery or would the tr
Depends: On the technology and skill of the surgeon and medical center where you go. Both procedures can be done percutaneously/endovascular by entering the vessels in your groin. Whether both can be done at the same time is something only your surgeon/cardiologist should discuss with you. Minimally invasive valve surgery is usually done for pts who would not be able to tolerate an open procedure. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
Thymus lives: Behind the sternum or breast bone. Splitting it to access it or coronary arteries for bypass leaves a long scar. Big blood vessels live behind, the heart below. Accessing from above was done to acess nodes, or the left pleural space with thoracoscopic scopes is plausible, reserving conversion to open if bleeding ensues. There are many important vessels and nerves. I'd pick mediastinotomy still. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which doctors have experience performing hallux rigidus minimally invasive surgery in nj/pa or nearby states?
Is there a minimally invasive surgery to repair torn rib ligament/cartilage so it can be reattached to sternum?
Rib pain: An injury to the junction of a rib with the cartilage attachement to the sternum can be extremely painful but unfortunately there are no well accepted treatments. If local injection of anesthetics can block the pain appropriately, resection of the site of pain could be considered rather than "repair". Small sections of the ribs are sometimes resected for spine procedures and usually well tolerated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

9 days since hydrocele surgery. I think I'm having a speedy recovery. Very minimal discomfort. Can I masturbate? Don't want to ruin surgery.
I had CTS 11/2016. I had an EMG last week and it showed mild CTS. Does this mean the surgery didn't work?
Not necessarily: Nerve conduction studies are used to determine CTS among other things. The distal latency number may show mild-moderate-severe slowing (represented by a higher distal latency number). If surgery is done to decompress an inflamed nerve, sometimes the latency number is so high, it comes down closer to normal, but may never get to normal in spite of best efforts (you kind of develop a NEW normal). ...Read more

Depends: Minimally invasive spine surgery aims to achieve the same goals as standard surgery, just with less tissue damage. A lot depends on the actual problem and the experience of the surgeon.

A good compromise might be "less" invasive but still maximally effective surgery. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Supposing I have surgery to correct my cystocele (mild prolapse), will this be a sure fix and correct it?
No. : I would only recommend surgery to repair a cystocele if it is causing you significant problems. There really is no such thing as a sure fix. All procedures used to repair cystocele have a failure rate. If your problem happens to worsen over time it can be repaired later. Their is no danger in waiting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
