Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) in Argentina

For the laparoscopic surgery the surgeon creates a surgical field and the surgery is performed using small instruments and a high-definition camera to provide magnified images on a monitor.

An inert mesh is used in the affected area to reinfoce the adominal wall without generating tension. The surgery can thus be performed with three incisions of 3 to 5 mm each, and the detailed, magnified images allow the suregon to perform the surgery with great confidence, minimizing complications.

How is the surgery performed?

On the Day of Surgery:

Typically, the patient is admitted to the hospital during the morning and after the surgery, the patient stays under supervision in the recovery room until he/she is fully awake. After a variable period of observation, the patient is discharged on the day of the surgery or the following day.

After the Surgery

You will be able to perform normal activities having to avoid big efforts. Physical activities can be resumed within 15 to 20 days after the surgery.

A hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall. It may be present from birth, or develop gradually over the years.

The gallbladder has the function to store and concentrate bile produced in the liver. Usually, this digestive liquid is released from the gallbladder after eating, aiding digestion.

The esophagus, on its way to the abdomen, passes through a small hole in the diaphragm, called the esophageal hiatus. Normally, the elements surrounding this small hole allow the organs to be held in place.
