Cutting Costs And Patient Recovery Times

A little snip can make a big difference. Patients can expect less operative trauma and faster recovery, while insurers enjoy shorter stays and lower costs. Minimally invasive surgery has become a win-win advancement that’s created a $27 billion market as of 2012, up 5.4% as compared with 2010.[1] Many traditionally “open” surgeries that required incisions as long as 12 inches are now performed with incisions that are often no larger than the diameter of a pencil. Procedures ranging from angioplasty to laparoscopic gall bladder removal can now be done endoscopically, with robotic equipment giving doctors even greater precision and control.[2] So scrub in. We’ve got work to do. See more
