The Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
The single incision laparoscopic surgery is a new method and has advantages towards classic laparoscopic surgery. Postoperative pain is reduced and permits surgery without scars. The single incision laparoscopic surgery is also used with tubular gastric surgery and gastric bypass.
In the past, large incisions hat to be made for sleeve gastrectomy surgery. In the last few years, minimal-invasive techniques helped surgeons to get better results. We explain to you the progress in the minimal-invasive surgery with reduced recovery, fewer discomforts, and free of scars incision points. With this improvement is it possible for surgeons to insert the needed operative instruments through a small incision of about 10-15 millimetres. The single incision laparoscopic surgery replaces nowadays already in many procedures open operations.
To the Benefit of Patients Minimal-Invasive Surgery
The minimal-invasive surgery consists of some small incisions, instead of one large opening. The single incision laparoscopic surgery has taken another step forward, instead of some small incisions, there is only one. This new method results in many advantages to patients.
This method, also known as Single-Port-Surgery, Single-Port-Laparoscopy (SPL), Single-Port-Acess-Surgery (SAP), or One Port Umbilical Surgery (OPUS) has been made possible with the improvement of surgical instruments.
