Medical technology development of the past decades has basically altered the centuries-old practice of surgery. The speed of recovery is not necessarily determined by the “magnitude” of the surgery but the size of the inflicted wound and the degree of tissue destruction. That is, the smallest possible “entry” has to be used to get to the surgical site.
This procedure is called ‘minimally invasive’ and it results in significantly less pain after the interventions, much more rapid rehabilitation, better cosmetic result and rarer occurrence of late complications (such as hernias). Another great advantage of this procedure is that inflammatory complications are very rare due to the short hospital stay.
One-day surgeries became very common, because a significant amount of surgical interventions can be performed in this form of care. Patients can typically go home on the day of the surgery or the morning after, and after a week they can live their life without any complaints and return to full workload.
