Single port, gynecological new technique to intervene with minimal incision

During the last few years there has been a huge advance in the gynecological surgery thanks to the introduction of laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery techniques. Both have allowed to solve a number of pathologies through less aggressive procedures and allow a better postoperative recovery thanks, among other things, to minimize abdominal scars .

Among all the advances there is one of the most recent variants of laparoscopic procedures, the so-called " single port " which is really exceptional. With this technique, a small incision is made in the navel and all the necessary instruments are introduced to be able to perform the planned surgery.

The use of this technique, unlike what happens in conventional laparoscopic surgery, involves avoiding other auxiliary incisions.. That is, at the end of the intervention there will be a single incision in the skin of about two centimeters which, moreover, will be practically hidden inside the navel, so that the aesthetic result is usually excellent.

Operations with single port

Although it should be noted that not all interventions can be performed by the single port technique , it is true that there is an increasing number of procedures that are incorporated into this new variant of laparoscopic surgery. Therefore, we can affirm that its applications are currently in the growth phase. It is to be hoped that the introduction of new equipment will allow us to further expand the number of processes that can be carried out by means of this surgical procedure of a single orifice, of small size, technically known as a single port.
