Laparoscopic surgery and hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) are "minimally invasive" procedures commonly used to treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Unlike traditional surgery on the colon or other parts of the intestines where a long incision down the center of the abdomen is required, laparoscopic surgery requires only small "keyhole" incisions in the abdomen. In the case of hand-assisted surgery, a 3-4 inch incision is also used to allow the surgeons hand access to the abdominal organs. As a result, the person undergoing the procedure may experience less pain and scarring after surgery, and a more rapid recovery.
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
Rather than the traditional four to five small incisions, a single small incision can be used at the entry point. All surgical instruments are placed through this small incision and also the incision site is located in the left abdomen or umbilicus.
Key Benefits of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
- Fewer incisions – Typically, this surgery requires only one small incision.
- Health and cosmetic benefits – Since there are fewer incisions, there is less possibility of infection, less scarring and better cosmetic results.
- Faster recovery times – The surgery is recognized as minimally invasive to cause shorter recovery times.
- The most recent technology – Laparoscopic surgery has generally replaced the need for traditional open surgeries in the abdominal or pelvic cavities.
