Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS)

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery is one of the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques designed to reduce postoperative pain and reduce the length of hospital stay and that a patient might experience with traditional surgery. The procedure require just one small incision - resulting in a nearly invisible scar and leading to a faster recovery.

SILS has many potential benefits, including the following:

  • Faster recovery time
  • Minimal pain during and after the procedure
  • Reduced chance of complications caused by infections, bleeding, and wounds such as hernias
  • Less, or even no scarring
