Gall Bladder and Appendix Surgery

Whenever possible, our surgeons use advanced single incision laparoscopic surgery to perform appendectomies and cholecystectomies, which has the advantage of using one-incision rather than the standard three-to-five. In most cases, the incision is hidden inside the belly button, which results in no or minimal scarring. In addition, single incision surgery minimizes pain and complications and improves recovery time. Patients are typically able to return home immediately following surgery and resume normal activities within days.
