Single-Site Surgery is a non-robotic, minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s navel. Unlike a traditional multi-port laparoscopic approach with up to four incisions, single-site surgery leaves only a single small scar.
Because there is only one incision, patients typically recover faster from single-site surgery. Depending on the type of surgery, patients are usually able to go home the same day. Also, many patients prefer the aesthetic results of a virtually scarless procedure.
