Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)

Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery single incision

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
