Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) is an advanced minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the surgeon operates exclusively through a single entry point instead of the traditional four or more laparoscopic incisions. This is the same procedure as the traditional surgery with the one incision being the main difference. Many times this incision can be hidden within the belly button so patients are truly left with a no visible scars.

WakeMed Bariatric Specialists of NC is one of the very few practices in the Triangle that specialize in advanced laparoscopy and SILS. Our focus is on minimally invasive techniques for both routine and complex general surgery.
