Single Incision Surgery

Single incision surgery is the latest advancement in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Using this innovative technique, surgery can be performed through a single incision hidden in the umbilicus (belly button). Using tiny cameras and flexible surgical instruments, surgeons can maneuver through the operating field with excellent precision and control, while minimizing the damage to surrounding tissue.

Single incision surgery offers patients all of the benefits of minimally invasive surgery with an even more rapid postoperative recovery, unparalleled cosmetic results and virtually no visible scar.

Not all procedures can be performed through one small incision. To learn more, contact a North Shore-LIJ gynecologic surgeon , or request and appointment
