Minimally Invasive/SILS
​Minimally Invasive Surgery & Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)

Minimally Invasive Surgery (sometimes called Laproscopic Surgery) is done through small incisions using specialized techniques, miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high definition monitors. Surgeons in many specialties perform surgery through an incision that requires only a stitch or two to close.

Dr. Bounoua offers the Single Incision Scarless Surgery ( SILS). For more information call the office, or click here.

For patients, Minimally Invasive Surgery means less trauma to the body, less blood loss, smaller surgical scars and less need for pain medication. Patients leave the hospital sooner after Minimally Invasive Surgery and return to normal activities sooner than with conventional open surgery.
