Single port access cholecystectomy is a new laparoscopic procedure using only one transumbilically placed port. This video shows a procedure performed using a Gelport® through a 2.5cm incision. This Gelport® is usually used to perform hand-assisted surgery. In this case, the incision used to introduce the hand was closed by a single suture and 3 ports are inserted in the gel. These 3 ports allow to insert a 5mm 30 degree optic and straight or angulated instruments into the abdomen.
