Single Incision laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
One of the latest additions to Bariatric surgery is the new technique of port entry called the Single Incision laparoscopic Surgery. SILS is the next generation of laparoscopy, where the access is only through a single port instead of multiple ports. This utilizes new specialized port and roticulator instruments thus making the procedure literally scarless as it will be buried inside the belly button. This procedure though consumes more time, gives early post operative recovery with less pain than in conventional laparoscopy thus making it a treatment of choice for patients.
