Single port laparoscopy, also known as laparo-endoscopic single-site surgery (LESS), is a minimally invasive procedure in which a surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patients navel. Compared with traditional multi-port laparoscopic techniques, benefits of this procedure include less postoperative pain, less blood loss, faster recovery time, and better cosmetic results.

This book is a guide to single port laparoscopic surgery for practising gynaecological surgeons. Divided into three sections, it begins with the basic principles, instruments and techniques. The second section provides in depth coverage of LESS for various gynaecological conditions including ectopic pregnancy, hysterectomy and in gynaecological oncology.

The final part of the book discusses recent advances in LESS, examining robotic-assisted surgery and newer trends. Tips and Tricks for beginners are also included.
