Single Incision laparoscopic surgery is an advanced minimally invasive surgical technique in which the surgeon operates through a single incision instead of the traditional four or more laparoscopic incisions. The bariatric procedure is performed entirely through the umbilicus (belly button), leaving patients with minimal or no visible scar. Single incision laparoscopic surgery leaves the patient with the potentially less post operative pain, quicker recovery time and reduced risk of wound site infections.
Bariatric surgical procedures can be performed using this approach, but cannot be performed at all the patients. The determination depends on many factors including the size of the liver, Body Mass Index (BMI) and previous Surgeries. This all will be discussed during a patient’s initial consultation. Single Iincision laparoscopic surgical procedures require an experienced surgeon who is highly skilled in laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Jiten Chowdhary is a leading expert in the single incision laparoscopic surgical procedure.
