Dr. Hemant Jain is a Senior Consultant Laparoscopic surgeon (Gastro surgeon) practicing in Mumbai with a special focus on Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgeries (SILS), Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeries, and GI Cancer Surgeries.
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Because the incisions made during laparoscopic surgery are lesser than those left by traditional open 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, a new kind of surgery called single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is competing to become the standard of care.
Having smaller minimal and cosmetically appealing scars in minimally invasive surgery is the next major step forward, and single-incision surgery is an advanced technique that could be the first step in that direction. Rather than creating new scars, this method utilises the body’s own scar i.e. the umbilicus (navel). Using 5 mm telescopes, 5 mm trochars and few modifications in surgical techniques have enabled surgeons to complete the surgeries via a single 15 mm incision which ultimately gets concealed in umbilicus.
Operation Procedure included in Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
All the surgical tools for a single-incision laparoscopic procedure are inserted through a 15 to 20 mm single incision on the umbilicus, creating a natural scar. Even if an organ needs to be removed, it can be made with a single incision, so there will be minimal visible scarring on the stomach.
We perform Single-incision laparoscopic surgery with 5 mm HD telescope and specially designed 5 mm laparoscopic ports. Standard rigid hand instruments are used. Deft manoeuvring by surgeon and camera assistant prevents instruments from colliding with one another in the tight spaces during surgery.
Benefits of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
- This is a major development and advancement over traditional laparoscopy, which requires multiple small incisions to be made on the stomach rather than just a single one . As a result, patients who undergo single-incision laparoscopic surgery experience fewer complications and a quicker recovery time than those who undergo traditional laparoscopy.
- Patients who have gallbladder disorders (Gallstones, acute or chronic cholecystitis, gallbladder cancer) are the ones who benefit the most from single-incision laparoscopic surgery. By undergoing this procedure, they can decrease the discomfort and stress associated with surgery along with the best possible cosmetic outcomes.
- Additionally, Appendix surgeries, Inguinal hernia surgeries, etc can be done using SILS. Due to limited manoeuvrability and available small working space, it is imperative that only highly trained professionals carry out single incision laparoscopic operations.
