Single-Incision Surgery

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
