Keyhole vs Conventional Surgery Learn the Differences and Make the Right Choice

Keyhole surgery is now the standard treatment for many conditions, being used in hundreds of thousands of cases a year for hernias, acid reflux, gynaecological conditions, removing tumours etc.

But there has been extensive debate about the use of keyhole surgery versus open surgery. Many surgeons prefer keyhole surgery for its benefits, while surgeons who favour the conventional approach often argue that keyhole surgery is more dangerous than open surgery, leading to a greater chance of complications.

However, it must be noted that in the hands of a skilled and experienced surgeon, keyhole surgery is a safe procedure with good outcomes. The greater chance of complications only tends to occur when the keyhole procedure is being performed by surgeons who do not practice this method on a regular basis.
