This technique seems to reduce the parameters reflecting the period of hospitalization, exposure to analgesics, patient’s recovery rate, and the level of pain felt. Studies have been conducted that have demonstrated that, hypnosis can significantly improve the duration of pain exposure as well as the intensity perceived by the patient. In domain literature report cases in which hypnosis has been proven effective is in the preoperative preparation of surgical patients. furthermore, by applying hypnosis, positive results are found during the postoperative care of patients. This study aims at the results of video-assisted surgical techniques, and at the opportunity of integrating complementary therapeutic elements such as hypnosis to improve the parameters interested in perioperative care of the surgical patient.
