e, the surgeon removes the port, allowing the natural contours of the bellybutton to help hide the small surgical incision. Single-site surgery has the potential to result in improved cosmesis for patients over traditional open surgery.  

"Our aim as a leading global healthcare company is not only to design our products using cutting-edge technology, but also to ensure that our medical products contribute to a healthier and happier way of life for people worldwide," commented Luke Calcraft, President and COO of Olympus Corporation of the Americas. "Now in its 5th generation, Olympus' ENDOEYE FLEX 5 and Visera Elite platform further strengthen Olympus' portfolio of surgical products by enhancing the performance and functionality for surgeons."

The VISERA ELITE surgical platform is compatible with Olympus' ENDOALPHA, Surgical Integration Solution. ENDOALPHA simplifies OR workflow in a simple, seamless, efficient and effective manner – offering central room control to access preset profiles, selection of surgery scenes and instant customization.

While there is still much to be learned, single port laparoscopy represents the next step in minimally invasive surgery. Not all patients will be candidates for single incision (single port) surgery. Also, for some patients additional incisions or open surgery may be required.
