SILS™ Hysterectomy at Piedmont Medical Center
Piedmont Medical Center is proud to offer York County residents one of the newest advancements in laparoscopic hysterectomy: Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS™). This new form of laparoscopic surgery has the potential to shorten the recovery time and leave almost no visible scar when compared to other hysterectomy procedures.
More than 600,000 hysterectomies are performed in the U.S. each year; it is now the second most common surgery for women of reproductive age. A doctor may recommend this surgery for several reasons including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, or cancer. If you are considering a hysterectomy, you may want to talk to your doctor about whether you are a candidate for SILS™, and how other hysterectomy options compare.
