Less Pain, Quicker Recovery Time

Technology has come a long way as far as medical practice is concerned. New techniques and innovations are making the difficult tasks of doctors, especially the surgeons, a whole lot easier.

Many surgical procedures can be performed safely with minimally invasive surgery
. Patients who are older and who may not endure long recovery period are better off with the less invasive approach.

Unlike traditional surgery, in which a large incision is needed to expose the body cavity, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions to allow surgeons to complete the operation.
Surgeons use specially designed instruments that are inserted into the body to perform the necessary procedure. With only small incisions being made, less trauma is exerted on the body.

These surgeries result in less postoperative swelling than open techniques. It also helps reduce pain, limit the risk of complications, and lower recovery times

United Tissue Network's whole-body donation program enables medical professionals to practice surgical techniques and procedures prior to undertaking the same procedures in the operating room. Read here for additional whole-body donation facts that benefit medical science.
