Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) in Turkey in Antalya. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) in Antalya, Turkey is an innovative surgical procedure that offers advantages over conventional laparoscopy or keyhole surgery. It reduces post-operative pain and enables scarless operations. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS), which is also used for gastric sleeve surgery, leads to better cosmetic results and reduces the stress for patients.
In the past, gastric surgery often required extensive incisions to perform procedures to reduce the size of the stomach and achieve permanent weight loss. However, thanks to minimally invasive techniques in recent years, surgeons have been able to significantly optimise cosmetic results by avoiding long incisions during surgery. In this article, we explain how advances in minimally invasive surgery allow our patients to have shorter recovery periods, less discomfort and scar-free access points after gastric surgery. Today, single-incision laparoscopic surgery is used as an alternative to open surgery for many procedures.
Minimally invasive surgery essentially consists of several small incisions. Instead of a large opening that can traumatise the patient’s skin and muscles, operations inside the body are performed through several small incisions in minimally invasive surgery. Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) goes one step further: instead of several small incisions in the stomach area, this new procedure only requires a single incision. This offers patients a number of additional advantages.
This new form of surgery, also known as single-port surgery, single-port laparoscopy (SPL), single-port access surgery (SAP) or one-port umbilical surgery (OPUS), has been made possible by advances in the production of surgical instruments. The small tools can adapt optimally to the internal structures of the body. These improvements allow surgeons to insert the instruments into the body through a single small incision of 10 – 15 mm in length in the SILS procedure.
In direct comparison to conventional keyhole surgery, the greatest advantage of single incision laparoscopic surgery is the single incision. This significantly reduces pain during recovery. At the same time, the risk of infection for the patient is reduced and recovery is accelerated. As the SILS procedure leaves no visible scars, it is also cosmetically more effective than conventional keyhole surgery. Don’t you dream of a slender abdomen that is scar-free without the need for surgery? With single incision laparoscopic surgery, exactly this result is possible! Stomach reduction operations using the SILS method are usually performed through the navel at our specialist clinic. The instruments are inserted through this. After the operation, the resulting scar is covered by the navel and is therefore invisible.
Even though Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery is still a relatively new surgical procedure, it has already been used thousands of times worldwide. Clinical studies looking at the SILS method showed that patients were more satisfied with the cosmetic results achieved as well as the perception of pain. Another clinical study involving 100 gastric surgery patients showed that SILS was better able to alleviate post-operative pain.
To the contrary. SILS reduces the risk of axonal injury. Axonal injury is a complication by open surgery and standard laparoscopy. Single-incision laparoscopic surges is a fast developing technique used by experienced surgeons for a successful sleeve gastrectomy with gastric bypass and gastric sleeve.
SILS offers patients another advantage if there is a need for an additional operation for weight reduction. The surgeon has only to widen the one incision a little bit for a better view. This incision reduces the risk of an inner adherence of organs.
For all advantages, SILS cannot be recommended in all cases. Especially with very adipose patients, this technique cannot be used. The instruments are not long enough for a safe procedure.
The single incision laparoscopic surges are not for every form of sleeve gastrectomy suitable. If the operation needs sewing or to operate on organs hard to reach. There are other methods of minimal-invasive surgery.
In cases, when organs are to close to a large blood vessel or a severe infection exists, only open surgery can be performed.
Internationally it will take some time to replace the conventional laparoscopy surgery by SILS. Our surgeons in Turkey have excellent experience with this method and technique through many successful procedures. They know some essential tricks to avoid complications.
In other countries, surgeons still prefer trusted operating methods. Associated with this are their disadvantages like scars, pain and the time of regeneration.
