Single Incision Laparoscopic surgery – newest and most popular in the US

Single Incision Laparoscopic surgery (SILS)

Single incision laparoscopic surgery is fast becoming a popular technique in US and other Western countries. It is the newest technique in laparoscopic surgery and is regarded as non-invasive. The technique offers many advantages. The procedure as the name suggests is performed through a single incision and thus, there are minimal or no scars, less blood loss, lesser post-operative pain and quicker recovery.

Besides, the surgery is financially advantageous to hospitals, insurance companies, and caregivers too because the patient’s hospital stay is shorter and recovery is much faster.

In a traditional laparoscopic surgery, 4-5 small incisions are made and surgical instruments are placed through these incisions. In single incision laparoscopic surgery, only one incision is made which is used as the entry point. All surgical instruments are placed through this incision, which is located either in the left abdomen or umbilicus.

Surgeries performed through single incision take almost the same time as traditional laparoscopic procedures. It is, however, important to note that not everyone is a candidate for single incision laparoscopic surgery. Since the procedure is considered complicated because of the proximity of all the instruments, restricted degree of freedom of movement and thus manipulation is tough. Only very few surgeons are trained to perform the procedure. Factors such as severe obesity, severe adhesions or scarring from previous surgeries prohibit patients from undergoing SILS.
