Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery (MIVS) has gained a lot of popularity due to its many benefits. Compared to traditional vascular surgery, MIVS is relatively easy to perform and offers patients less pain and shorter hospital stays with faster recovery times. As the saying goes, “less is more” – it’s no wonder MIVS is an appealing treatment option for those needing vascular surgery. Let’s take a deeper look into what makes MIVS so great.
Faster Recovery Times
With MIVS, patients can experience a shorter recovery than with open surgery. The procedure itself involves smaller cuts which result in less tissue trauma. There is less pain and swelling post-surgery as compared to traditional vascular surgeries. The procedure also reduces the risk of complications during healing, making the recovery process faster overall.
Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery (MIVS) is an incredibly beneficial surgical approach, particularly due to its reduced scarring. Instead of a large incision, MIVS requires only tiny incisions in the skin; this allows for a much more aesthetically pleasing outcome and far less visible scarring on the body after recovery. Thus, patients can be sure that their appearance will remain intact.
Lower Risk of Infection
Minimally invasive vascular surgery carries significantly lower infection risks than traditional open surgical approaches. Microorganisms are less likely to enter the body through smaller incisions because smaller incisions cause less tissue trauma. Special sterile pouching techniques are often used during MIVS procedures to further minimize the chance of infection.
Shorter Hospital Stay
Offering faster and shorter recovery times, minimally invasive vascular surgery (MIVS) may be the right option for those looking to discontinue their hospital stay after a surgical procedure. This type of surgery usually ensures that most patients can complete their inpatient stay within two days following the completion of their surgery—in addition to the benefits of smaller incisions versus traditional open surgical procedures, which require five days or more. Moving back home sooner lets you start your recovery from the comfort of your home.
