Maximum Results, Minimally Invasive.
Single Incision Surgery takes minimally invasive surgery to an entirely new level. This is the latest iteration of traditional laparoscopic surgery, which is based on the principle of doing the same surgery that is done using a few 1/2 inch incisions to introduce 2-3 instruments and a High Definition (HD) camera. In single incision surgery, all instruments are introduced through one single incision using newly developed ‘ports’ for this specific purpose. This results in 24-48 hour hospitalizations in the majority of our patients. Less pain, smaller incisions, and faster recovery.
Dr. Shaw has participated in several lectures, courses and advanced training on Single Incision Surgery. As this is a new modification of traditional laparoscopic and robotic procedures, it’s role is limited to select cases.
