KK Minimally Invasive Surgery Centre

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is also known as key-hole or laparoscopic surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery involves the surgeon performing surgery with small incisions made in the abdomen. The surgeon will visualise the pelvic organs using a thin fibre optic tube. This surgical technique is good for patients as there is less complications when compared to open surgery. Patients benefit from good cosmesis and less post-operative pain. Furthermore, hospital stay and recovery time is shortened.

KK MIS Centre has been recognised as a Centre of Excellence. Our operating theatres are equipped with the latest equipment and technology. Our surgeons and team strive to bring you world class expertise and care, here in Singapore. We also provide training and education to local and foreign trained doctors wishing to enhance their skills in MIS.
