SINGLE INCISION BETTER PRECISION

Smaller Inclusions | Decreased Pain | Shorter Hospital Stay | Quicker Recovery | Better Congolese Results

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) or single incision gastrectomy is an advanced, minimally invasive (keyhole) procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s umbilicus (navel). Special articulating instruments and access ports are used to enter into the abdomen.

SILS has been commonly used for:

  • cholecystectomy
  • weight-loss surgery for both sleeve gastrectomy

Advantages:

  • Less recovery time
  • Less incisional pain
  • Single, virtual scar less incision through the belly button
  • Reduced postoperative pain

Less invasive because surgery is done laparoscopic.
