Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
If you have a lower BMI and no previous abdominal surgeries this might be an option for you. The single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS™) approach is designed to make surgery less invasive. Thus, instead of a four to six smaller half-inch incisions utilized in standard laparoscopic surgery, the SILS™ surgery is accomplished through a single incision in the belly button, or occasionally with an additional tiny incision at the top of the abdomen. Fewer incisions means fewer scars.
