SINGLE INCISION LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY


Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) or Single Incision Gastrectomy is an advanced, minimally invasive (keyhole) procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s umbilicus (navel). Special articulating instruments and access ports are used to enter into the abdomen.
SILS has been commonly used for:

  • cholecystectomy
  • weight-loss surgery for both sleeve gastrectomy

Advantages:

  • Less recovery time
  • Less incisional pain
  • Single, virtual scar less incision through the belly button
  • Reduced postoperative pain

Less invasive because surgery is done laparoscopically.

All kind of hernia can now be treated using laparoscopy:

  • Inguinal Hernias
  • Ventral Hernia / Incisional Hernia
  • Diaphragmatic Hernias
  • Hiatus Hernia etc.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Hernia Repair over open surgery:

  • It is very less invasion (small cuts) even if no adhesions are found during the surgery.
  • Chances of reformations of adhesions to surgical scar are lesser.
  • Less painful, quicker recovery and discharge.

Stapled hemorrhoidectomy, also known as stapledhemorrhoidopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of abnormally enlarged hemorrhoidal tissue, followed by the repositioning of the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue back to its normal anatomic position.

Tummy-tuck surgery or abdominoplasty, can flatten your abdomen by removing loose, excess fat and skin and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. It can also remove some if not all of the stretch marks in your lower abdomen. It is popular following pregnancy, massive weight loss or whenever a flabby abdomen with weak muscles impairs body contour. Most patients report improved self-esteem as a result of this procedure.

Are you a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

There comes a time when you realize that efforts at dieting and exercise are yielding lower numbers on your bathroom scale but not changing the appearance of your sagging and protruding abdomen. The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a tummy tuck:

  • Aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery or weight fluctuations have left you with extra skin on your abdomen, abdominal muscle weakness, or both.
  • You do not smoke. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery. If you smoke, you must quit at least six weeks before surgery.
  • Your weight is stable. Slender individuals with extra fat and loose skin in the lower tummy are the best candidates; if you are generally obese, this procedure is not appropriate for you.
  • If you have a significant amount of intra-abdominal fat surrounding your internal organs, you may need to slim down before considering a tummy tuck.
  • You are physically healthy. You must be in relatively good physical shape to tolerate this procedure.
  • You are finished having children. The muscles that are repaired during an abdominoplasty can separate again during future pregnancy.
  • Internal or external scars from any previous abdominal surgery may also affect your candidacy.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
