Laparoscopic & Single Incision Surgery

You will no longer have to require multiple incisions, visible scars and long recovery times with with the availability of single incision surgery currently performed by our surgeons. Our surgeons are performing single incision surgery for the removal of the gallbladder (Cholecystectomy). This provides a cosmetic advantage since it only requires a small, single incision in the patient's belly button as opposed to traditional gallbladder surgery which requires a large opening in the abdomen. It also has an advantage over laparoscopic surgery which requires multiple small incisions in the abdomen. The patient experiences less pain because of a single incision instead of multiple incisions. Single incision surgery patients go home the day of surgery and resume normal activity as soon as they feel up to it.
