Here are the techniques of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) performed at Samitivej Hospital:

  1. Conventional Laparoscopic Surgery
    With conventional laparoscopic surgery, one can expect two to four very small incisions in the abdominal area. To clarify, small incisions are approximately 0.5 to 1 cm each. Contrarily, in a traditional open abdominal surgery, the size of the incision on the abdomen is about 8 to 15 cm long. The main advantages of conventional laparoscopic surgery, then, are that it results in far less postoperative pain. Furthermore, it has a much shorter recovery period, allowing the patient to return to their everyday life and activities much more quickly. Last but the most obvious cosmetic advantage is the greatly reduced incision size.
  2. Single-Port Laparoscopic Surgery
    Conventional laparoscopic surgery has been further developed to what is now called single port laparoscopic surgery. What used to be two to four incision sites with the conventional method, has now been reduced to a single small incision at the entry point—the umbilicus. The key benefit of single port laparoscopic surgery is its highly superior cosmetic results; as once the procedure is finished, the umbilicus is gently folded back into its original position. As a result, the healed incision leaves practically no visible scar. The many other benefits are comparable to those of conventional laparoscopic surgery.
  3. Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) – Latest Revolutionary Technique
    Scarless abdominal surgery, or as it is known in medical terms, Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES), is a form of laparoscopic surgery that has been further advanced and developed from the conventional laparoscopic surgery approach. However, it’s entry is through a natural orifice, such as the mouth, anus or vagina.
    The safest and most favored approach at present is transvaginal. To give a clearer picture, the transvaginal approach is accomplished by passing the tiny camera and instruments through the vaginal cavity to perform surgery. Because every phase of this surgical procedure is performed using the vaginal port, it means that the most obvious advantages are the aesthetic and cosmetic benefits, since there is no incision made in the abdominal area. With this procedure, the postoperative pain is far less than with any other kind of laparoscopic surgery that goes through the abdomen. Moreover, it boasts a much faster postoperative recovery period.
