Emergency Cases


Single-port surgery is a procedure performed through one cut (incision) and with an innovative single-port robot. Surgeons use this minimally invasive approach in many procedures involving different organ systems. People who have single-port surgery report less pain and faster recovery than with traditional minimally invasive surgeries.

Get in touch with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible with the best available treatment for your issue.

What is single-port surgery?

Surgeons perform single-port surgery through a single port — or incision — in your belly button (navel) or abdomen. The location of the incision may vary depending on the surgical procedure. Single-port surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery. You might hear the term single-port SP surgery.

First used clinically in September 2018, single-port robotic surgery is now widely used in many medical centers worldwide for various procedures. Surgeons in a variety of specialties conduct single-port surgery, including urology, and ear, nose and throat. This innovation continues to provide excellent results, with more rapid recovery and increased patient satisfaction.

What’s the difference between surgical approaches?

There are different approaches to surgery. Your surgeon selects the one that’s best for you based on their experience, your reason for needing surgery and your overall health.

Open surgery:

In open surgery, your surgeon creates a large incision. This approach involves more cutting of your tissues.

Minimally invasive surgery

In a minimally invasive surgery (MIS), your surgeon makes a smaller incision. This approach is associated with faster recovery and less pain. Laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery are both minimally invasive approaches.

In traditional laparoscopic or robotic surgery, the surgeon makes three to five small incisions. The surgical team uses these ports as they insert instruments to perform the surgery. For example, they might use laparoscopic surgery to remove your kidney if needed.

In single-port robotic surgery, the surgeon makes only ONE small cut. They then connect a single-port robot to the port and perform the entire procedure through this opening.

What procedures are possible using the single-port approach?

Surgeons have used the single-port approach for many different types of procedures involving different organ systems, including:

  • Kidney surgeries. These include kidney removal (nephrectomy), donor nephrectomy, kidney transplantation and surgery to repair a blockage between your kidney and your ureter (pyeloplasty).
  • Prostate surgeries, including prostatectomy.
  • Cystectomy, which removes your bladder.
  • Urinary tract reconstruction.

Who can have single-port surgery?

People who are eligible for robotic surgery are generally good candidates for single port surgery with few exceptions. In addition, people who might not be eligible for the regular robotic surgery using the standard robot (those who’ve had multiple major abdominal surgeries, severe pulmonary or cardiac diseases, or morbid obesity) can be candidates for a single-port procedure. Your surgeon will consider your overall health and the severity of your condition when determining the best approach


  • Failure of the abdominal wall to close properly in the womb (congenital defect)
  • Age
  • Damage from injury or surgery
  • Being pregnant (puts pressure on your abdomen)
  • Being constipated (causes you to strain when having a bowel movement)
  • Heavyweight lifting
  • Fluid in the abdomen (ascites)
  • Being overweight or obese
  • A chronic cough
  • Chronic constipation
  • Smoking (which can trigger a chronic cough)
  • Conditions such as cystic.
  • The persons who under went previous open sergeries (Commonly LSCS)
