Making Surgery Virtually Scarless

Gwinnett Medical Center is not only recognized as the leader in Atlanta and Georgia for single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS™), we are also recognized as the national leader.

This minimally invasive surgery is endorsed by the American College of Surgeons and is designed to decrease post-operative pain and the length of hospital stays.

Another major advantage of SILS is a significant reduction in the size of a patient’s scar. Because the surgery is performed through the belly button, any scarring from the single incision is virtually invisible.

As Georgia’s leader in this practically scarless surgery, we’ve performed more successful SILS procedures than all other Atlanta-area hospitals combined. Some of the procedures performed with SILS include:

  • Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder removal)
  • Laparoscopic colectomy
  • Splenectomy
  • Adrenalectomy
  • Appendectomy
