Single Port Surgery is an advanced minimally invasive approach leaving almost no visible scar. With this technique, pain and discomfort are also reduced to a minimum and recovery time is quicker. This video demonstrates a laparoscopic single port sleeve gastric resection in a 41-year-old female patient who presented with weight loss and was found to have a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) arising from the posterior wall of the proximal stomach.
