Robotic Surgery: Single-Site
During Single-Site™ robotic surgery, your surgeon makes only one small incision to perform the surgery. Most commonly this is used for:
- Gallbladder removal
- Removal of tubes/ovaries
With Single-Site robotic surgery, your surgeon makes one small incision in your belly button. The scar soon fades, becoming nearly impossible to see.
Benefits of Single-Site surgery include:
- Tiny scar
- Less pain
- Less blood loss and risk of infection
- Faster recovery time
