Single Incision Right Colectomy
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has revolutionized the traditional approach to colectomy. By minimizing trauma to the abdominal wall and the field of resection, MIS colectomy has been associated with less postoperative pain, shorter return of bowel function, and reduction in the hospital length of stay. Single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) is a derivative of traditional multiport laparoscopy, combining trocar and specimen extraction sites, with the intention of reducing pain and scarring.
