Nursing is a profession within the health care sector focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities so they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life. Nurse education has undergone a process of diversification towards advanced and specialized credentials; minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical techniques that limit the size of incisions needed and so lessens wound healing time, associated pain and risk of infection. The front-runners of minimally invasive procedures were interventional radiologists. Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision.
