Abstract

Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) is gaining popularity as a modality in surgery which reduces the number and size of skin incisions. General surgeons and urologists were the first to implement this technique, however, recently gynecologists have also started performing SILS procedures. We present the case of a 70 year old female who underwent a combined SILS procedure which included cholecystectomy, bilateral oophorectomy and omentectomy. The procedure lasted 100 minutes and the patient was discharged home the day after the operation. No operative or post-operative complications were noted. In this case report we present the technical details and demonstrate the collaboration between different disciplines which enables performing this complex and demanding procedure.
