Minimal Invasive Pediatric Surgery
1 year ago
Most pediatric surgeons in our survey perform MIS. The high rate of laparoscopic cholecystectomies reported suggests that the initial MIS experience of pediatric surgeons in our survey is similar to adult general surgeons. The frequency, however, of thoracic cases reported indicates that MIS techniques are being applied to all areas of pediatric surgery. The total minimally invasive procedure experience of our respondents also suggests that pediatric surgeons are early in their learning curve.
