Scarless Surgery (SILS)

A tiny single incision within the depth of the umbilicus is usually all that is required for this new technique. You may have heard of SILS, but it really is fast becoming the treatment of choice for patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Having had friends and family members who have undergone a SILSTM procedure, many patients are now asking for SILSTM by name. Performed within the same time it takes a traditional laparoscopic procedure, a single incision often means less pain, less incision related complications, faster return to daily activities, and a significant cosmetic difference. Many ER physicians are no longer relying on “reading” their patient’s scars to determine their surgical history.
