Single-Incision Laparoscopic Colectomy has been shown to be a safe and feasible surgical technique for the treatment of benign and malignant diseases. We have performed over 100 single-incision laparoscopic right hemicolectomies since 2009 utilizing an umbilical approach. We have recently adopted a “Single Plus One” technique to improve cosmesis, allow for better instrument ergonomics and decrease the risk of umbilical incisional hernias. This approach utilizes an umbilical 5 mm port and a 2.5 cm Pfannenstiel incision, requiring an intracorporeal anastomosis.
