Single Site Laparoscopic Surgery is a minimal access technique where only one small, 1.5 inch incision is made in the belly button (umbilicus) to perform a surgery like a gallbladder removal or a hernia repair. Since 2008, Dr. Edelman has performed thousands of these types of surgeries. He was granted a patent from the US Patent office for a single site device which allows him to gain safe access into a patient’s abdominal cavity to perform a necessary operation using standard laparoscopic instruments or by Robotics. Single Site Surgery allows one small incision which can allow patients to recover sooner and get back to work in less time with less pain and less pain medication requirements. Do not hesitate to ask Dr. Edelman or his staff about the availability of this technology.
