Abstract

Since 2008, various single-port access laparoscopic surgeries in gynecologic diseases have been performed in Korea. Single-port laparoscopic surgery has some advantages. It has less visible scars, less pain, and a faster recovery. Single-port laparoscopic surgery also has a drawback that is hard to handle instruments compared to conventional multi-port laparoscopic surgery. However, single-port laparoscopic surgery can be performed safely by practitioners who have experiences in single-port laparoscopic techniques. Based on experiences of gynecologic single-port laparoscopic surgery for 1000 cases in Incheon St. Mary's Hospital until August 2011, we describe techniques for single-port access laparoscopic surgery.
