About Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery

Offering the advantages of fewer scars, the potential for less pain, and shorter recovery periods, Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) is one of the latest laparoscopic techniques and is considered to be minimally invasive. In general, SILS techniques take about the same amount of time to perform as traditional laparoscopic surgeries. However, SILS is considered to be a more complex procedure because it involves manipulating three articulating instruments through one access port, generally the abdomen or the belly button.

Key Benefits Of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery

  • Fewer incisions – Typically, this surgery requires only one small incision.
  • Health and cosmetic benefits – Because there are fewer incisions, there is less chance of infection, less scarring and better cosmetic results. 
  • Faster recovery times – The surgery is considered minimally invasive and results in shorter recovery times.
  • The latest technology – Laparoscopic surgery has generally replaced the need for traditional open surgeries in the abdominal or pelvic cavities.
