Advancement of medical devices and improved surgical techniques have made it possible to perform laparoscopic bariatric surgery with just a single-incision. Minimally-invasive Single-Incision Bariatric Surgery is the newest technique to further less invasive laparoscopic surgery and to encourage more people to endure it. Baja Weight Loss, is proud to be one of the first weight loss centers in Mexico to offer Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS). This surgery is only recommended for an BMI<35.
SINGLE INCISION LAPAROSCOPIC SLEVEE $5,400 dlls
In single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) only one incision of around 1.5 – 2cm is made at the umbilicus and the telescope as well as all the instruments are passed through that. There are two ways of performing SILS. Either the surgeon uses a specialised access device (access port) through which the telescopes as well as specialised roticulating instruments are passed inside the abdomen. These devices, however, are disposable and add substantially to the cost of SILS.
