Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) techniques offer patients many benefits over traditional surgeries:


  • Less Pain

    • MIS procedures cause less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Lower chance for infection

    • MIS procedures have less chance for infection than traditional surgeries
  • Shorter Hospital

    • Patients who undergo MIS procedures are usually able to go home sooner as a result there will be a shorter hospital stay and quicker return to normal activities.
  • Less Scarring

    • MIS procedures require smaller incisions — which means smaller, less noticeable scars.
  • Less Injury to Tissue

    • Most traditional surgeries require a longer incision which is made through the muscle. Muscle needs a significant time to heal after surgery. Because there are no long incisions in MIS, surgeons often do not have to cut through muscles to complete the procedure — leading to less tissue damage and quicker recovery.
  • Higher Accuracy Rate

    • MIS procedures use video-assisted equipment, therefore, the surgeon has better visualization and magnification of internal organs and structure. For patients, this translates into a more accurate and definitive procedure.
  • Is MIS Right for You?

    • Dr. Kostman uses minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. To see if MIS is an option for you, please call 314-966-8887 to schedule an appointment.
