What is the Single-Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (SILS)?
Through the progress of medical technology and the continuous improvement of surgical techniques, a single incision laparoscopic bariatric procedure has become possible. The single-incision laparoscopic gastric sleeve (SILS) is the latest and least invasive technique in Bariatric Surgery.
At Baja Weight Loss we are proud to be one of the first obesity clinics in Mexico implementing this innovative procedure.
How is this procedure different from the others?
The single-incision laparoscopic gastric sleeve (SILS) uses a small cut of approximately 1.5 – 2 cm. through the belly button, while the traditional gastric sleeve uses 4 – 5 small incisions.
This bariatric procedure is much less invasive than traditional gastric sleeve and also simpler than gastric bypass (RYGB), the chances of postoperative complications are much lower.
This approach offers many benefits for the patient, such as:
Less recovery time.
Less discomfort or pain.
Quicker return to normal activities.
Duration of the procedure: Between 40 to 60 minutes.
