Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) or Zero Scar Bariatric Surgery

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) or Zero scar bariatric surgery 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.

At our centre, SILS is commonly used for:

  • Cholecystectomy
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
