Operations with a minimally invasive method

Compared to traditional abdominal operations, modern minimally invasive methods are gaining more importance in surgery and are performed in approximately 30 % cases. With special tools, only 2-3 small incisions 1.5-2 cm long are made. With the help of a special camera, the doctor monitors the process of the operation on the monitor. The method allows to prevent postoperative complications and ensures the speedy healing of the wound, which leads to a quick recovery and discharge from the clinic.
