    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Minimally invasive surgery has changed the methods utilized in every surgical medical specialty during the past ten years. This breakthrough has prompted surgeons to reconsider traditional approaches concerning perioperative factors like pain management.
    It has also caused conventional procedures to be replaced by minimally invasive ones. The introduction of this new technique has, however, brought about two significant drawbacks: first, a longer learning curve for most surgeons compared to the open surgery learning curve; and second, higher costs as a result of investments in the necessary equipment, the use of disposable instruments, and longer operating times.
    These higher expenses are not always offset by shorter hospital stays in the various health care systems around the world. Different surgeries have their advantages and disadvantages. For example, the lengthening of hospital stays has resulted in a rise in outpatient laparoscopic surgery, which is now widely practiced at day surgery facilities. As the size of the instruments is decreased to produce better cosmetic outcomes, the boundaries are being pushed even further.
    Clinical research has also concentrated on the issue of extending the indications for minimally invasive procedures in the elderly and high-risk patients to benefit from the potential reductions in hospital stays and surgical trauma.
    The stress reaction during and after minimally invasive treatments has been the subject of much basic study. It has been found that the least invasive technique improves the immune response, which improves the outcomes of intensive oncological procedures.
    New computer-assisted techniques used in robotic surgery and telesurgery allow for improved surgical procedure precision as well as the ability to provide surgical skill and competence remotely, over considerable distances. Thus, minimally invasive surgical methods are already well-established in daily practice, and the indications are constantly growing.
    This special issue focuses on all kinds of minimal surgical techniques, instruments used in surgery, and their implications.
