In the last decade, the techniques of Minimally Invasive Surgery have taken huge leaps. These procedures involve conducting surgeries through small openings to remove organs and perform several surgical procedures, avoiding large wounds and possible scaring

These techniques have the following advantages:

  • The patient may be discharged early
  • Social life of the patient may restart a few days after surgery
  • Patients have fewer complications than with traditional techniques.

Cuba has multidisciplinary medical teams composed of endoscopy surgeons, specialized radiologists, experienced anaesthesiologists, highly trained nursing staff and technicians with expertise and high quality instruments and medical technologies.
