Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery

Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery or SILS is an emerging technique in the field of minimally invasive procedures.


Unlike in other laparoscopic procedures where the surgeon may have to do three or more incisions, SILS allows one to complete the procedure with just one incision near the umbilicus or belly button.

SILS reduces potential risk factors of laparoscopy, including hematomas, infection, and hernia. SILS is the best option for bariatric surgery, especially for patients requiring Sleeve Gastrectomy.

Who Needs SILS?

SILS is an advanced laparoscopic procedure and is for patients with severe obesity and comorbid conditions.

How Is SILS Done?

As the name indicates, the surgeon makes a small incision near the umbilical, through which tiny surgical instruments aided by thin, flexible tubes fitted with a camera are inserted into the site. Guided by the images, the surgeon performs the required procedure and sutures it.


It may take up to a year to achieve the desired weight loss.

Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery is a safe procedure. It is an emerging technique and significantly reduces the risk factors like infection and excessive bleeding.

The patient may have to spend up to 2 to 3 days after a Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery.

The patient will be advised to take only a liquid diet for the the first week, after which they can slowly consume pureed and solid food.
