If you're facing gallbladder removal, appendectomy, colon surgery, hernia repair or gastric surgery, you may be a good candidate for a surgical method that offers quicker recovery time with less pain and virtually no scar.
Single-incision surgery is an innovative procedure that involves just one incision made at the patient's belly button. The incision is typically about the size of a quarter or smaller.
The benefits of single-incision surgery include:
- Shorter hospital stay and much faster recovery
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Reduced risk of infection and complications
- Faster return to daily activities
