Gallstone surgery by laparoscopic method is most commonly performed procedure worldwide. Now a days there is more and more trend towards minimally invasive procedure. Single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) is becoming more popular in this field. First SILC was performed by Navarra et al1 in1997 through a single periumbilical skin incision. There were many modifications in SILC procedure also since then. Some authors have used few special devices such as designed SILSTM port Covidian), Triport TM , Single Site Laparoscopy Access System (Ethicon) and Gelpoint (Applied Medical System ) 2etc. Whereas, others have used specially desined instruments to shorten the learning curve.
