Minimal access surgery is rapidly expanding and currently single-port surgery is at the forefront of laparoscopy. Operating through a single port is technically demanding but through advances in camera design and instrument design, it is now gaining popularity. It offers minimal scar surgery as well as decreased postoperative pain and swift recovery. Here we present a case of bilateral simultaneous single-port laparoscopic nephrectomy (LESS) laparoendoscopic single site surgery in a 51-year-old man. Illustrating that LESS can be used by surgeons with laparoscopic skills outside of a few major international centers.
