Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
The ability to do so uses cutting edge technology which falls under the title of single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) which has been trademarked by Covidian. While recovery after weight loss surgery is not significantly different than conventional multi-incision laparoscopic surgery, the cosmetic results are by far superior.
Benefits of Single Incision Surgery
- Fewer Incisions – Typically this surgery requires only one small incision.
- Health and Cosmetic – With fewer incisions there is less chance of infection, less scarring and better cosmetic results.
- Faster Recovery Times – Although laparoscopic gastric banding is currently performed using minimally invasive techniques and patients generally go home the same day as the surgery, SILS results in even shorter recovery times.
