France excels in minimally invasive surgery
French experts are recognised worldwide for
breaking new ground in the development and teaching of
what are known as minimally invasive surgical techniques,
particularly in transgastric surgery. The constant
innovations in robotics and virtual techniques in operative
practice are opening up new possibilities, such as surgical
interventions that leave no visible scars.
Surgery has undergone a genuine revolution in recent
years. The era of minimally invasive surgery devised by
French surgeons has allowed the development of a
considerable international market, especially in Japan, the
United States, Latin America and China, but also in Spain,
Germany and Italy. Transluminal surgery leaving no visible
scar is a rapidly developing new concept.
