SILS for Gynecological Procedures Ft. Myers, FL
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery, a cutting-edge technique, has gained recent popularity amongst surgeons. This type of surgery utilizes a single umbilical (belly button) incision, placing a device or port through this incision and passing various cannulas via this port to pass a Laparoscopic Camera and surgical instruments. We may perform a variety of Gynecological procedures with this method, including SILS HYSTERECTOMY (removal or uterus +/- ovaries and tubes), SILS OOPHORECTOMY (removal or one or both ovaries) and SILS Treatment of ENDOMETRIOSIS (tissue from the inner uterus which has spilled out into the abdominal cavity causing pain, cysts, scarring, abnormal anatomy). It is coined as Scar-free surgery since there is only one incision which is nearly hidden within the umbilicus. This procedure is NOT for everyone, but a wonderful option for many.
