ⓘ SILS gastric banding

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patients umbilicus. Special articulating instruments and access ports eliminate the need to place trochars externally for triangulation, thus allowing the creation of a small, solitary portal of entry into the abdomen.

Sils has been used for several common surgical procedures including hernia repair, cholecystectomy and nephrectomy. The Sils technique is also used in weight loss surgery for the sleeve gastrectomy procedure and, more recently, for LAGB laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding.
