Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
SILS is often referred to as “scarless surgery” because of the tiny incision and near-invisible scar. Our team is one of the few in the world who use this surgical technique on colon procedures. Rather than creating one large opening for the surgeon to access the treatment area, one small incision is made. With a digital camera and special surgical tools, our surgeons can access the colon to complete the surgery with accuracy.
Why Laparoscopic Surgery?
The thought of surgery for many can be worrisome, and the idea of living with a large scar adds additional concern. However, patients at Houston Colon can take comfort. We have a surgeon on staff who serves as an instructor to train and educate surgeons, fellows, and residents to help them gain exposure and competency with these techniques and skills. Once patients realize our surgeons are the ones teaching the next generation of laparoscopic surgeons, their minds are at ease. Other comforting benefits for the patient include:
- Little to no scarring
- Reduced post-operative pain
- Lower risk of infections
- Lower risk of hernia
- Quick recovery time
- A speedy return to day-to-day activities
