Orthopaedic surgery has been traditionally thought as a quite aggressive procedure, despite the introduction at the end of the 70’s of new less-invasive techniques. As the matter of fact arthroscopic surgery and biological treatment of the fractures with more elastic systems testifies the first steps towards a less invasive approach to the patient. Likely shorter incision is only an aspect of a less invasive surgery with potential higher rate of poor results. The authors present the development of less-invasive orthopaedic surgery in association to new techniques such as computer and robotic assisted surgery.
