Minimally Invasive Procedures for Swift Recovery Outside the Hospital


Decades ago, few knew what “minimally Invasive” meant, but today, it is a common term. Many medical interventions were brutal in the past, requiring days in the hospital to recover. We at South Florida Vascular Associates pioneered minimally invasive vascular surgery and continue to move forward.


Our specialized minimally invasive methodologies mean faster recoveries, less tissue damage, and significantly lessened discomfort. As a leading practice in vascular procedures, we have a state-of-the-art outpatient clinic under the direction of board-certified physicians and highly trained healthcare professionals. As one of the first practices to specialize in minimally invasive vascular procedures, we have developed the focus and approach necessary for satisfied customers. That means minimized trauma and tissue disturbance, producing positive outcomes. Our approach is to commit to excellence.


Minimally invasive techniques are a growing medical intervention category that uses micro-technologies in surgeries once done only at the macro level. In comparison, one uses procedures from the 20th century; the other, minimally invasive, is more advanced and more appropriate when applicable. The patient can go home for rest, where, compared to a hospital setting, the patient enjoys a speedy recovery. Complications in traditional surgeries are all too common. With minimally invasive procedures, complications are rare.

Limits of Minimally Invasive Technologies

Not all medical procedures and surgeries are a substitute for minimally invasive interventions. The patient’s health, diagnosis, and treatment options come under consideration. During an initial consultation, healthcare professionals will outline options tailored to each individual. Limits include:

  • Prior health conditions
  • Diagnosis of the presenting condition
  • Efficacy of minimally invasive procedure

Groundbreaking Procedures

In oncology, minimally invasive techniques are available depending on the stage and specific type of cancer. Efficacy considerations prevail, and patients will know their options. Both women and men develop treatable vascular conditions. Venous insufficiency is a condition affecting blood flow primarily in the legs. Treatment includes inside-the-vein laser treatment (ELVT). Before this advance, “vein stripping” was the go-to procedure, which was painful and problematic. Similarly, transjugular stints create new connections of critical veins adjacent to the liver.

Post Treatment Priorities

The above are a few standard procedures. There are many more variations and treatments. A consultation with a vascular healthcare practitioner will help patients understand their options. While minimally invasive procedures significantly reduce recovery times, they require essential follow-ups. Follow-ups include:

  • Specific post-treatment recommendations
  • A rest and relaxation period
  • In-clinic appointments with healthcare vascular professionals
  • Follow-up with the primary care provider
