Single-Site Surgery

With traditional laparoscopy and robotic surgery, surgeons operate through a few small incisions. Using robotic single-site surgery for benign (non-cancerous) conditions, your doctor can perform surgery through a small incision in your belly button. Patients experience virtually scarless results, similar to single incision traditional laparoscopy.

Single Site operations are used in gallbladder removal, and for hysterectomy, and ovary removal for benign conditions.

Virtually Scarless Hysterectomy & Ovary Removal

Hysterectomies, the second most common surgical procedure for women in the U.S., have traditionally involved open surgery with a wide incision below the navel. This painful procedure involves significant blood loss, risk of infection, heavy pain medications, and leaves in its wake a significant scar.

One of the most important steps you can take before your hysterectomy is to educate yourself on the different types of surgeries available. There are more options for how your uterus is removed than ever before. The most common surgical options are: traditional laparoscopy, robotic surgery, and open surgery.

Today, using robotic single-site surgery for benign (non-cancerous) conditions, your doctor can perform a hysterectomy through a small incision in your belly button. Robotic single-site surgery is available at Kettering and Soin Medical Centers. Patients who have this surgery typically experience virtually scarless results.
