LAPAROSCOPIC OF UNIQUE INCISION

Bariatric surgery has been established as the best option of treatment for morbid obesity. In recent years single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has emerged as another modality of carrying out the bariatric procedures.

Minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s umbilicus. Special articulating instruments and access ports eliminate the need to place trocars externally for triangulation, thus allowing the creation of a small, solitary portal of entry into the abdomen.
