Virtually Scarless Surgery in Portland

Da Vinci Single-Site Surgery: A virtually scarless procedure

Your body is precious to you — and so is your time. If you need surgery, you want to treat both with care. A new type of pelvic surgery using just one small incision leaves virtually no scar and will get you back on your feet quicker than traditional surgery.

Adventist Health Portland was the first hospital in the Oregon and southwest Washington region to perform this type of gynecologic surgery, known as Single-Site. It allows physicians to perform complex surgeries, including hysterectomy, treatment for endometriosis, removal of ovaries and ovarian masses, and gallbladder removal through a single incision.

In addition to the nearly invisible scar, it offers all the benefits of minimally invasive surgery:

  • Shorter recovery time
  • Minimal pain
  • Low blood loss
  • A brief hospital stay

Ranked as the No. 1 gynecologic surgery program in Oregon, Adventist Health is excited to deliver the latest advancements in care to our patients.

With Single-Site Surgery, your doctor removes your uterus and possibly your ovaries and fallopian tubes through your belly button using state-of-the-art instruments. Patients who choose Single-Site Surgery experience virtually scarless results, similar to single incision traditional laparoscopy.
