Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
Also known as Scarless Surgery,
SILS is the Holy Grail of surgeries.
Created to reduce scars, pain and suffering of patients by minimalizing laparoscopic surgical access points
to 1, instead of 4, usually through the patient's naval.
Why choose SILS?
1 instead of 4 cuts
Lessen the trauma of access
Less post surgical pain
Less possibilities of wound-related complications
Faster recovery, early return to regular activities
No visible scars
" Through SILS, any possibility of
infection is now limited to one incision site rather than four sites.
This results in less risk of wound complications, reduced post surgery pain and shorter recovery time."
- Dr. Ravishankar K. Didappur
