  • Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS)
  • One port umbilical surgery (OPUS)

Single Port Surgery is an advanced key-hole surgery in which the colorectal surgeon performs surgery through a very small cut in the abdomen. Since the entire surgery is performed through the navel, it does not leave any visible scar like a traditional keyhole surgery which consists of several small scars.
