Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)


The Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) replaces the multiple incision procedure, which traditionally includes three to six small incisions, with just one incision. In this surgical approach Dr. Nowzaradan uses specialized instruments through a single entry point, typically the patient’s naval, to undergo a range of common surgical procedures that leaves the patient virtually scarless. This surgical approach is minimally invasive and once healed, achieves a more improved cosmetic appearance. Dr. Nowzaradan’s experience in the SILS approach allows patients to undergo many types of surgery including weight loss surgery, hernia repair, appendectomy, gallbladder removal, colectomy, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding and many more procedures.
