By using the most advanced, minimally invasive SPIDER® Surgical System, our surgeons are able to perform successful bariatric procedures while minimizing both complications and scarring. Elite Surgical Center is constantly striving for improved medical outcomes, and a very large part of that is accomplished by doing whatever it takes to minimize risk and negative cosmetic outcomes.
This single site access technique uses a device that allows all of the tools that the surgeon needs to be retracted through one tiny access point. Also referred to as Surgical Tiny Access and Rapid Recovery (STARR) treatment, this method has been used successfully for years, but never before with the flexibility offered by the SPIDER® device. The instrument is meant to enter the patient through a tiny incision in or around the belly button, so the scar is hidden after the surgery is complete.
Doctors across all fields are moving toward similar laparoscopic techniques because patients not only see a reduction in scarring and fewer complications, they also on average have shorter hospital stays. Minimally invasive surgery is one of the main reasons why surgeons at Elite Surgical Center are able to perform bariatric surgery as an outpatient procedure, rather than keeping their patients under supervision at a hospital.
The revolutionary, minimally invasive SPIDER® Surgical System is just one of the many things that sets Elite Surgical Center apart from the competition. To find out more about our revolutionary work, or to schedule a consultation, call us today at THIN.2.2.THIN , or (844) 622-8446.
