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.

Benefits of the laparoscopic surgery:

  • Less pain: Faster healing time and less pain.
  • Maximum comfort: quicker return to normal activities.
  • Aesthetic: Less noticeable scars (2 to 4 mm).
  • Shorter Hospital Stay: Hospital discharge within 12 to 36 hours.
