Patient Comments (1)
in Miami, FL |
Dr. Whitwell went over all the pros and cons of the different surgical approaches for a cholecystectomy. Even after outweighing the cons (increased possibility of an umbilical hernia) of a single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) via Da Vinci, I felt confident that Dr. Whitwell could carry out the surgery with confidence and without complications. One month post op, I am happy with the aesthetics of having ONE scar inside/below the umbilicus.
