ABSTRACT
The article presents information on single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The first single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed in 2007. Since then several surgeons have used single-incision surgical techniques into their practices. Many studies have shown that single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) can be done safely for different procedures such as appendectomy, nephrectomy, and different gynecologic procedures.
