That’s because this innovative, cutting-edge technique can offer faster recovery times, less scarring, and less pain and discomfort.

The surgery is performed with smaller cuts (sometimes just a few millimeters long) on the skin. Then, a long, thin tube with a mini-camera (this is called an endoscope) is used to get a clear image of the surgical area.

There are many benefits to this operational surgical procedure, including:

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Quicker recovery
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Less soft tissue and muscle damage
  • Smaller Surgical incisions
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less need for post-operative medications
  • Improved function
