Quick outpatient surgical procedure – about 90 minutes including pre-op and post-op.
Almost pain-free, walk out of surgery, and drive yourself home.
Minimal or no time off work.
Quick recovery time, measured in weeks, not months.
A small cut is applied rather than a large incision.
A smaller incision results in fewer side effects including less bleeding, less pain, less scarring, reduced intake of narcotics, fewer complications which reduce the risk of infection and avoid little injury on the muscles, nerves, and tissues.
