Minimally Invasive Surgical Options Single-Port Gastric Sleeve (SILS)

SILS, known as single incision laparoscopic surgery is one of the newest laparoscopic techniques and is regarded as minimally invasive. Unlike a traditional multi-port laparoscopic approach, the procedure is essentially scarless because the incision is hidden within the umbilicus. In general, the SILS technique takes about the same amount of time to do as traditional laparoscopic bariatric surgeries. Additional benefit of this procedure is decreased pain, and a shorter recovery period.
