What is minimally invasive surgery?

A type of surgical procedure that accesses the surgical site thru a small opening in the skin, not a long incision.

A small incision is created on the foot, and a uniquely designed instrument is inserted into the opening. The whole process is done through a small opening of less than an inch. At the end of the surgical operation, a stitch may be used to seal the opening, and a small bandage protects the surface.
