Benefits of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)

Because the incisions made during laparoscopic surgery are lesser than those left by traditional surgery, and because the healing process after laparoscopic procedures is shorter, laparoscopic surgery has long been the ideal method of operation. Nevertheless, thanks to scientific and technological developments, surgeons today can offer a new kind of surgery called single incision laparoscopic surgery(SILS).


All the surgical tools for a single-incision laparoscopic procedure are inserted through a half-inch incision on the umbilicus, ultimately creating a scar within a natural scar. Even if an organ needs to be removed, it can be made with a single incision, so there will be minimal scarring on the stomach.

In Single-incision laparoscopic surgery we use multiple puncture technique which helps us limit the breath of maximum incision on the sheath (deep inside wound) to 10 mm. We don’t use commercially available SILS ports which need a bit larger 3 cm incisions.
Few technical modifications and the accumulated surgical experience have helped us overcome the challenges posed by the limited working space and the frequent clash of hand instruments in SILS surgery.


This is a major development and advancement over traditional laparoscopy. Instead of multiple small incisions in traditional laparoscopy, a single small incision is used. There is no compromise as far as patient safety, recovery from surgery or rate of complications is concerned. Due to the small working space available in single incision operation and a learning curve involved, it is advisable that only highly trained professionals perform it.
