Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)

Our team of surgeons performs single incision laparoscopy, the most recent breakthrough in laparoscopic colon surgery. Instead of one large incision or multiple smaller ones, this technique involves one single, small incision, which is hidden through the navel.

The most obvious benefit for patients is the lack of apparent scar tissue. Other benefits include diminished postoperative pain and lower risk of wound infections and hernias.

Our team recently published the largest series of SILS cases in the country.
