Single Incision LapBAND Surgery - the gold standard in gastric banding
In recent years single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has become the gold standard in laparoscopic surgery. Aside from the obvious cosmetic benefits - patients can expect little or no visible scarring within 6 months of their gastric band procedure, there are practicval patient benefits too.
A recent study of 112 patients who had SILS LapBAND surgery showed that they suffered less post operative pain and reciovered mobility more quickly than patients who have a traditional multi incision procedure*
