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
  • Hysterectomy
  • 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
