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
