Single-Site Robotic Surgery: What You Need to Know

PR Event generic small group Lecture 600×375

If you are considering hysterectomy or gallbladder removal surgery, join gynecologic surgeon, Mel Kurtulus, MD, and general surgeon, Cheryl Olson, MD, to learn about a new surgical technique.


Scripps minimally invasive robotic surgery program now offers single-site surgery for both procedures.


Single-site surgery is performed with a single incision, and removal is performed through the belly button. Compared to open surgical techniques, or traditional minimally invasive robotic surgery (which requires four to five incisions), single-site surgery may result in beneficial outcomes including:


  • Faster recovery times
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Less pain and scarring

The lecture is free.
