Exploring the Safety of Keyhole Surgery: Risks, Recovery, and Expertise


Keyhole surgery, also known as endoscopy, has revolutionized the field of spine surgery by offering minimally invasive alternatives to traditional open procedures. Understanding the safety aspects of keyhole surgery is crucial for patients considering such procedures.

In this article, we delve into the risks, recovery process, and the importance of surgeon expertise in ensuring a safe and successful outcome.

Understanding Keyhole Surgery

Keyhole surgery involves making small incisions through which specialized instruments and a camera are inserted to perform surgical procedures internally. This technique contrasts with open surgery, which requires larger incisions. The advantages of laparoscopy include reduced pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times.
