Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is emerging as a method to improve morbidity and cosmetic benefits of laparoscopic surgery.

Because of her young age and slim body habitus, a total colectomy using a single port laparoscopic technique is performed with the SILS system manufactured by Covidien.
