PURPOSE: Single-incision laparoscopy is being performed for a wide variety of procedures. We describe our technique of single-incision laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for a colon mass. METHODS: The dissection was performed in a medial-to-lateral fashion with intracorporeal anastomosis. RESULTS: The length of stay was three days, and there were no postoperative complications. CONCLUSIONS: Single-incision laparoscopic colectomy with an intracorporeal anastomosis can provide satisfactory oncologic resection.
