Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) Technique
This is a new method of laparoscopy which has come up in recent times, for treatment of small size benign uterine and ovarian pathologies. All the surgeries which were performed by conventional laparoscopy, can now be performed by SILS. In this, instead of 2-4 small 5-10mm incisions, a single subumbilical incision is taken of 2 cm and the whole procedure is done through this incision only. It is technically challenging for the surgeon, but the results are better cosmesis and less postoperative pain.
