Minimally Invasive Surgery
Bumrungrad International Hospital is continuously upgrading its equipment giving patients the best possible and accurate results, while having the shortest possible stay in the hospital. The Medical Robot DaVinci, the smallest pacemaker in the world – the Micra and the Sextant II, all state of the art equipment, which fall in the category of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and are part of the latest medical equipment available to Bumrungrad ‘s doctors for their patients.

By using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques, Bumrungrad International Hospital offers patients many benefits over traditional surgeries. These include:

Less pain, less blood loss, less trauma
MIS procedures cause less post-operative pain and discomfort. Studies have shown that patients undergoing MIS procedures report less pain and require smaller doses of pain relievers than patients undergoing traditional surgeries. As small incisions are made, versus the traditional methods blood loss is minimal as is the post-surgery trauma.

Shorter Hospital Stay
Shorter hospital stay and quicker return to normal activities. Patients who undergo MIS procedures are usually able to go home sooner. And, in many cases, the patient is able to return to normal activities and work more quickly.

Less Scarring
MIS procedures require smaller incisions -- which means smaller, less noticeable scars. The scars that do form as a result of MIS typically have a less jagged edge -- giving them a more appealing look.

Less Injury to Tissue
Most traditional surgeries require a long incision. This incision usually has to be made through muscle. Muscle needs a significant time to heal after surgery. Because there are no long incisions in MIS, surgeons often do not have to cut through muscles to complete the procedure -- leading to less tissue damage and quicker recovery.

Higher Accuracy Rate
A higher accuracy rate for most procedures. Because MIS procedures use video-assisted equipment, the surgeon has better visualization and magnification of internal organs and structure. For patients, this translates into a more accurate and definitive procedure.

Is MIS Right for You?
At Bumrungrad International Hospital, minimally invasive procedures are used whenever possible. Some MIS procedures and surgeries may not be suitable for every patient. Your surgeon will discuss your personal options before any surgery.
