What is Less Exposure Surgery?

OPEN vs MIS vs LES

With minimally invasive surgery (MIS), surgeons attempt to achieve open surgery results by using smaller incisions and performing the surgery percutaneously through tubes, retractors, and endoscopes. MIS still causes a substantial amount of collateral damage and removal of normal tissues.

When a surgeon performs open surgery, this tissue damage is more obvious and visible. When a surgeon performs MIS, the tissue damage under the skin isn’t as obvious. Also, the effects of the additional radiation that MIS requires are also not immediately apparent, but might show up later in life.

OPEN vs MIS vs LES

Less Exposure Surgery (LES®) is based on a new surgical philosophy. Small open incisions are created, through which the surgeon only exposes what needs to be treated for maximum effectiveness. Nothing more, nothing less. By developing improved technologies and techniques tailored for pinpointing a problem and fixing it without collateral damage, LES® minimizes normal tissue disruption without relying on excessive radiation.

LES® procedures are performed in an outpaitent setting and are tailored to the patient’s lifestyle, health status, and body type. This personal attention decreases risk, is simpler for the surgeon to perform, reduces pain and blood loss, and decreases recovery time.
