Keeping the "Minimum" in Minimally Invasive Surgery
I had to ask the doctor if this was a new term or if he was just jerking me around. It's like calling a garbage collector a "sanitation specialist". That's great, but at the end of the day the person is still a garbage collector.
She has suffered from those ugly veins in her lower leg and upper thigh for quite some time. In these parts they call them "widows veins" although I've never quite understood why.
Anyway, her doctor recently called us all in to let her know and let us know that a few of these veins would need to be removed in order to prevent blockage. And as we all know, blockage - anything thing that blocks the flow of blood to and from the heart or impedes circulation - is not a good thing no matter how old you are.
It was during this little recap in modern medicine that Doctor Fransione' tossed out the term "minimally invasive surgery".
I had never heard that one before. Minimally invasive. That makes me wonder - is there another surgery that is "maximally invasive" as well? So just what is "minimally" invasive? When the incision made by the surgeon doesn't cut too deep? In terms of surgery, it would seem to me that ANY time a patient is being operated on it's "invasive". How can it not be invasive when there are no less than two or three pairs of hands feeling their way around the patients insides, complete with scalpels, needles and who knows what else.
I had to ask the doctor if this was a new term or if he was just jerking me around. It's like calling a garbage collector a "sanitation specialist". That's great, but at the end of the day the person is still a garbage collector. (And that's not to take anything away from garbage collectors, because we'd be in big trouble without them).
I'm glad I asked because the doctor explained a very interesting point to me. There is a difference between what is known as "minimally invasive surgery" and "minimal incision surgery". I always felt that you needed one (the incision) in order to have the other (the surgery). In other words, surgeons suggest that a minimal cut (incision) does not always mean the surgery is less invasive, because under the skin, the similar degree of surgical trauma may or may not occur.
Whether or not we really understood the definition didn't really matter. My mother-in-law needed to go under the knife and "minimally invasive surgery" was the way. No big risks. It would all be done in an hour at the most. A few days of rest in the hospital and then further R amp; R at home. My mother-in-law was thrilled. She learned a new term. In fact she couldn't wait to get home and explain it to her friends. Me on the other hand, I was more than a little curious. A little research was in order.
It's not like I have a lot of doctor friends because I don't really run with that crowd. Plus living in Europe I always wonder how new "new" technology really is. It reminds me of the first time I saw the Coca-Cola commercial with the polar bears. I thought it was the cutest thing I'd ever seen. Polar bears drinking Coke. Told my brother (who lives in Rochester) all about it next time we spoke on the phone. He couldn't stop laughing. "Those commercials have been on for years!" I digress, but maybe you see my point.
Lucky for me I have a sister-in-law who is a nurse and she shed a little light on the subject. Minimally invasive surgery is like the new kid on the block. A concept that apparently is getting all sorts of publicity because it allows for the least amount of surgery and the quickest amount of recovery. And the technique is being employed quite a bit in knee surgery and hip replacement surgery.
Surgeons now feel that they can do most procedures safely with a less invasive approach using a "minimal" cut. And I'm all for that. If I have to go under the knife I'd like to come out of it with a scar that doesn't resemble a roadmap of Miami Beach. Smaller incisions apparently are the way to go. The real length of the cut depends on the size of the patient and his or her fat content. In slim patients, surgeons have gone have evolved from an initial eight-inch incision to one that is four-inches long. In heavier patients surgeons may need to a six-inch incision.
New instruments are being continually developed to assist minimally invasive surgery techniques. Computer routing techniques that may improve the surgeon's ability to visualize the location of the operation site using virtual reality technologies. Robotics also represents a technology that is no longer relegated to comic books or sci-fi novels. For example - using a robotic arm to make an incision.
What's this mean to the patient? Hopefully they will be in and out of the operating room in less time with less trauma.
Minimally invasive surgery - just think of it as a brief visit from your mother-in-law.
